Following the extraordinary success of the 100/4, Austin-Healey released a high-performance version of the roadster, the 100M, which was equipped with the Le Mans package. This package included larger SU H6 carburetors with cold air box, a high-lift cam, increased compression, stiffer suspension, and a racy louvered hood with leather strap. In all, just 640 examples of the 100M were built by the factory. This gorgeous, matching-numbers, black and red Austin-Healey is one of the rare, factory-built 100M models and comes with a heavily documented pedigree, including its British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Certificate. Sold new in the US, it was formerly owned by John Wilson, proprietor of Healey Lane Restoration in Marcola, Oregon. In 2016, Mr. Wilson sold the car to a collector, with the understanding that Healey Lane would restore it to meet the challenging Gold-level certification standards of the Austin-Healey Concours Registry. During the ensuing restoration, famed Healey specialist Peter Nesbitt of Mount Sinai, New York, rebuilt the engine, gearbox, transmission, overdrive, and rear end. Completed in 2019, the 100M was awarded Austin-Healey Concours Registry Gold certification, as well as entry into the World-Wide 100M Le Mans Registry. Superbly restored to original specifications, this dazzling English Roadster offers the prospect of participating in many prestigious shows and driving events.
