Known History

The certificate from the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust informs us that this Austin-Healey 100 is an export model, which, in black and red “Reno“ color, was sold new in Düsseldorf (Germany), to the company Brüggemann, a car distributor. It featured a heater, a speedometer in km/h, red upholstery and a black hood. Subsequently, it was exported to the United States and it was in Illinois that the current owner found it, in 1989. He shipped it to France and then embarked on a comprehensive restoration: in 1996 the Kayedijan workshop in Pusignan, carried out a refurbishment of the body, as well as a verification of the chassis. Following this work, completed in 2000, a mechanical overhaul (engine, gearbox and axle) was entrusted to Renaissance Auto Nostalgie in Vénissieux in 2005. In both cases, a large invoice folder provides details of all the work carried out. Finally, in 2010, the car received a new paint job and the installation of an Austin-Healey 100 M kit.

In its impeccable original colors, the car comes with its side-screen, tonneau cover, user manual, documentation, photo and invoice folder. Superb in every way, it does justice to the qualities of this Austin-Healey 100, the epitome of the British roadster of the 1950s.
