The Austin-Healey 100-6 was the second of the three Austin-Healey models later known as the Big Healeys; it was introduced in 1956 to replace the Austin-Healey 100.
It featured a longer wheelbase than the original Austin-Healey 100 and a six-cylinder engine to replace the slightly larger capacity four and added two occasional seats which later became optional. The body lines were changed to a less rounded appearance, with a wider, lower radiator grille below the air scoop which was added to the bonnet, and a windscreen which was fixed and could no longer be folded down. There were two model designators, the 2+2 BN4 produced from 1956 onwards and the 2-seat BN6 produced from 1958.In late 1957 production was transferred from Longbridge to the MG plant at Abingdon.
This example was the subject of a full nut and bolt restoration carried out approx 7 years ago, for which there is much documentation and receipts, and it has the desirable options of a laminated windscreen and overdrive.
It was manufactured in 1957 possibly rendering it eligable for the Mille Miglia and was one of the few examples supplied new in the UK.
A lovely example of a true British classic sports car, offered in red with black interior.
