THE AUSTIN-HEALEY 100-6

Introduced for 1956, the 100-6 represented the most radical step forward in the Big Healey's development. Despite its initial success, sales of the original Austin-Healey 100 had begun to decline by the mid-1950s and so the model was revamped as the '100-6', BMC's 2.6-litre C-series six replacing the original four-cylinder Austin Atlantic engine. At the same time the wheelbase was lengthened from 7' 6" to 7' 8", which enabled the inclusion of two occasional seats in the rear of the BN4 variant. In 100-6 tune the pushrod six produced 102bhp - 12 horsepower more than its predecessor. Although stylistically very similar to the preceding 100, the 100-6 was easily distinguishable by its 'crinkle' radiator grill.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

According to production records on file, this Healey 100-6 was dispatched from the Healey works in April of 1957, sporting wire wheels, a heater and overdrive, while finished in black over a red interior and black soft-top. The new Healey was left-hand drive and delivered to its first owner in the St. Louis, Missouri area. In recent years, this lovely 100-6 has received much refurbishment work, including fitment of a new interior and trunk carpets. Five new Michelin XZX tires were fitted on restored wire wheels, while braking and suspension systems were serviced. A new windshield and exhaust were also fitted. Finished in period-correct Old English White over black, this classic British sports car offers spirited six-cylinder power to climb mountain roads, while the overdrive option makes it comfortable on the highways. With spare parts and club support readily available, these lovely cars are easy to affordable to keep on the road. Equipped with soft-top, side curtains and tonneau cover, the car is accompanied by a Heritage Trust Certificate, owners and workshop manuals, tool kit, jack and restoration receipts. This matching-numbers 100-6 BN4 stems from the very beginning of the successful Big-Healey, six-cylinder production run, and should offer the next owner much enjoyment.
