<li class="list-check__item">A superb original left-hand-drive model with its original engine<li class="list-check__item">Restored by noted marque specialists Healey Lane<li class="list-check__item">Wonderful period-correct color scheme and numerous accessoriesThe Healey Hundred was created in 1952, and it skillfully combined Donald Healey's sound chassis design with a sleek "envelope" body designed by Gerry Coker and the overhead-valve Austin A90 four-cylinder engine. Displayed at the Earls Court Motor Show, Austin's Leonard Lord saw the car, and a deal was quickly struck for its production by Austin. The car, which became known as the Austin-Healey 100, was succeeded by the six-cylinder 100-6 in 1956, and for 1959, the engine was enlarged and front disc brakes were added. The resulting, highly developed Austin-Healey 3000 was an immediate success, both on and off the track.

The numbers-matching, left-hand-drive car presented here has benefited from a total nut-and-bolt, frame-off restoration by the late Tom Rocke of Healey Lane in Riverside, California. Beautifully finished in Gun Metal Gray over Colorado Red, it has a completely new interior, with red seats with red piping, matching wool carpets and panels, a new trunk kit, new side curtains, a black soft top, and a black tonneau cover. The engine, transmission, overdrive, and all ancillary systems were fully rebuilt using all-new parts, as were virtually all other mechanical components of the car. The 185 Î 15 road speed tires turn on Dunlop 60-spoke chrome wire wheels.

This Healey remains ready for its next owner to enjoy on the open road or concours circuit. No expense was spared in its restoration, and the car is accompanied by its British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Certificate.
