Sometimes we come across a car of which we have already noticed in the first minute that it is something beautiful. Similarly, this Austin Healey 100/4 BN1 from 1953. Restored in to every detail and at the highest level by the current owner. An owner who, through decades of experience and craftsmanship, knows what he is talking about concerning panelwork and paintwork of classic cars, and who had the desire to restore an Austin Healey for himself. It should preferably be a special one. He discovered in 2010 in the sunny state of Florida USA a 100/4 that could be a perfect car again. It turned out to be a special one because it was one of the first built Healeys, complete with matching numbers and in the most wanted color: Ice Blue. An opportunity, so to speak, and the car was bought, shipped to the Netherlands and fully restored during 8 years. A pretty long period, because it had to be planned in between normal client assignments. And customers go first course. But now there was no time pressure and it was possible to work purely to achieve the highest possible level of quality. And it worked out.

We are pleased that we have now been asked to sell this beautiful 100/4 and to find a very good home for it. We think we will succeed in that, because who does not want to own number 402? Which has been “nut and bolt” restored, showing all his matching numbers, has been driven very professionally runs his first 300 miles and has its Dutch registration.

Of course, the entire restoration has been recorded on accompanying photographs and the documentation is complete including a Heritage Certificate confirming the originality. Also inportant to know is that the original production number 402 is stamped in the sheet metal.

Who is driving for the first time a Healey 100/4 with its more than 2600 cc 4-cylinder engine, will be amazed by the enormous torque and therefore flexibility. The engine is connected to a three-speed gearbox with an overdrive on the second and third gears. Great advantage compared to its 6-cylinder successor is the lower weight and the steering behavior. The seat is fine for not too tall people and the beautiful leather bucket seats provide sufficient support. The styling of the car is unsurpassed and is even more accentuated at the moment the windshield is folded down. This was constructed in such a way that the air resistance could be reduced during races for which the car was frequently used. Well, we do not expect you to be right at the start of a race with this Healey, but it looks very special don’t you think?We think with this car we can offer a Healey of the highest quality, and will bring a lot of driving pleasure for the driver and passenger and also is a good investment. We are looking forward to welcome and to show you why we are very enthousiastic about this Austin Healey 100/4 BN1.
