This Austin-Healey 100/4 BN1, dispatched on August the 22nd, 1953 from the Longbridge plant to the USA is exceptionally well restored. This was one of the first Austin-Healeys to leave the assembly belt on Longbridge as approximately car number 67.

interior trim was either red or blue. Transmission: three-speed gearbox fitted with
Laycock de Normaville overdrive. The car has matching numbers.

outstanding standard of restoration as well as rareness of colour.
