1955 Austin Healey 100 BN1 For sale
Great opportunity to purchase this unfinished restoration. The car has undergone a no expense spared professional restoration since I have owned it during the last 3 years. All the bodywork is now completed and painted in its original colour of Carmine Red.(Note what looks like a scratch on the boot lid is actually the reflection of an overhead cable!)
A rotisserie restoration was completed by Uk Healey specialist with 35yrs experience, using as many of the original panels as possible, plus c. £1500 of new panels from AH Spares including sills, floorpans, boot floors etc.

The car retains its original boot, bonnet, wings and doors.

Painted in original colour of Carmine Red with stone chip applied on underside and wheelarches. Internally waxoiled with Dynax S50.

Immaculate panel fit with door shut lines better than it left the factory see pictures.

This is a very late BN1 car which came with the better 5 stud axle from the factory in 1955, just prior to the release of the BN2.

During restoration, the gearbox cross-member has been swapped out with the later type strut to take the side change gearbox with mechanical linkage, as fitted to later BN2s.

The car is currently LHD but I had planned to convert to RHD so you could do either.

The car comes with lots of the difficult parts to source including widescreen and pillars, engine, carbs, generator, ropshaft, (steel) BN2 transmission cowling, suspension components, shock absorbers, radiator, heater, dials cockpit trim etc. It also comes with some duplicate parts such as a spare steering box, front hubs and drums.
I have recently completed the rear suspension rebuild including a refurbished back axle (professionally done) with all new (branded) bearings and seals, new springs etc so the car is now a fully rolling chassis which can be transported.

In order to complete, the car requires its mechanical components reconditioning/rebuilding, new trim, seats, wiring, brakes and electrics. The main component missing is the side change gearbox, plus seats and speedo which I had yet to acquire but can be sourced from one of several Healey specialists/ebay etc.

It will take some labour to finish, but the real skilled work has been done and I had planned to do the rest as a home restoration but having started, have just not found the time and hence am selling on to someone who can hopefully do it justice and complete it.

I have lots of paperwork including proof of purchase, the original US logbook from Utah, and proof from customs that the import duties have all been paid.

£43,500 to recover my investment and endeavours to date, or would consider partx for a roadgoing Healey BN6 or BN7.
