We are delighted to offer this exceptional, matching numbers UK supplied Austin Healey 100/4 BN1 onto the market. The car was purchased in the late 1980’s by a professional body restorer from a lady owner in Barnsley. The Healey needed full restoration and after four years in storage the car was subject of a total nut and bolt rebuild, completed in 1992. The body was completely rebuilt, the upholstery re-trimmed, new weather equipment fitted, re-chromed, re-wired, new wheels and tyres and mechanically completely overhauled. The original engine was stripped and totally rebuilt with new main and big end bearings, pistons, rebuilt cylinder head, re-ground crankshaft etc. From 1992 to 2009 the Healey covered over 15,000 miles touring all over Europe. In 17 years of use, thousands of miles covered touring in France, Spain, Portugal, Switzerland and Germany, the Healey never once let the owner down, proving completely reliable throughout ownership.

In 2009 URL 931 sold to the most recent owner in Harrogate who has covered just a few hundred miles in nine years of ownership. The car has been kept in a central heated garage, regularly taken out for short, local trips and events such as Newby Hall and has been kept in outstanding condition. The bodywork is absolutely top class with no corrosion issues, the body panels are perfectly straight and sharp, the underside body colour and outstanding. The engine bay is beautifully presented with detailed ancillaries so you would not think the car was restored almost 30 years ago. The chrome work is excellent throughout, so is the weather equipment and boot compartment. Lifting the carpets reveals beautiful clean Red floor pans, the detail in every respect is fabulous, the upholstery delightfully aged with an authentic look and feel. The car presents very fresh, a car that was perhaps restored five years ago.

On the road URL 931 is excellent, the engine pulls superbly holding excellent oil pressure. The rebuilt engine sounds and runs perfectly, the three speed overdrive gearbox is a delight to use, the steering, brakes and suspension all feel tight and responsive. This BN1 100/4 is a real gem, it's a genuine matching numbers UK car in top quality condition, has long term proven overseas touring reliability and will not disappoint in any area. The condition is remarkable considering the age of restoration and without doubt offers excellent value for such a well sorted, genuine car that has all the investment qualities looked for in such a car. Further to that, it is ready to drive, enjoy and take on the Continent, something it has been very used to doing with its long term owner and restorer.
