Vehicle Story

OVERVIEW

This 1957 Austin-Healey 100-6 four-seat BN4 roadster is powered by a rebuilt 2.6-liter I6 backed by a replacement four-speed manual transmission with a Laycock de Normanville overdrive unit. Features include driving lights, 15-inch Dayton wire wheels, a Moto-Lita steering wheel, Smiths instruments, rebuilt dual SU carburetors, a four-wheel disc brake conversion, and several replacement parts. Finished in two-tone red and black equipped with a black removable hardtop over a reupholstered black leather interior, this Austin-Healey comes from the selling dealer with the removed original transmission, additional removed and spare parts, a service manual, two keys, a British Motor Industry Heritage Trust certificate, and a clear title.

EXTERIOR – FEATURES

Originally finished in Ivory White, the exterior is now finished in red and black and equipped with a black removable hardtop with a replacement rear window. Features include chrome bumpers, driving lights, a chrome grille and hood scoop, a fender-mounted antenna, a driver-side rearview mirror, and external chrome trunk hinges. The selling dealer states that the door gaps and body lines are imperfect and the body has paint chips, cracks, and touch-ups along with a crease in the right-front fender.

EXTERIOR - WHEELS AND TIRES

A set of silver 15-inch Dayton 60-spoke wheels with replacement knock-off nuts is wrapped in Michelin XAS tires with 2014 date codes.

INTERIOR – FEATURES

The 2+2 cabin is furnished with low-back front bucket seats that have been reupholstered in black leather with red piping and a matching rear seat surrounded by black trim and door panels. Features include manual steering, a three-spoke Moto-Lita steering wheel with a wooden rim equipped with a rebuilt trafficator, a telescoping steering column, a floor-mounted manual transmission shifter, and a Smiths heater.

INTERIOR – GAUGES

The Smiths instrumentation located ahead of the driver includes a 120-mph speedometer, a 6,000-rpm tachometer, and gauges for the fuel level, oil pressure, and coolant temperature. The speedometer cable and angle drive have been replaced, but the selling dealer states that the speedometer registers low and the odometer is inaccurate. The odometer reads 20,645 miles;  the true mileage on this vehicle is unknown.

ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION

Power is provided by a rebuilt 2.6-liter I6 and backed by a rebuilt replacement four-speed manual transmission with a Laycock de Normanville overdrive unit. Engine bay features include rebuilt dual SU carburetors, a Lucas coil, and an Austin-branded valve cover. The selling dealer states that previous ownership service included a rebuild of the engine and carburetors and the replacement of the harmonic balancer, clutch, clutch slave cylinder, and radiator. A video of the engine starting can be seen below.

UNDERCARRIAGE

This Austin-Healey was factory-equipped with an independent front suspension and a solid rear drive axle. Braking is provided by an upgraded manual four-wheel disc brake conversion with Austin-Healey front calipers and rotors and Jaguar-sourced rear discs and hardware. Recent service includes the installation of a section of line to provide underhood access to the clutch bleed screw. The steering box was rebuilt under previous ownership.

ADDITIONAL DETAILS

The selling dealer will include two keys, a service manual, a British Motor Industry Heritage Trust certificate, and the following parts with the purchase of the car:

  • Longbridge convertible top bows
  • Two convertible tops, one of which has been patched and needs new side curtain gaskets
  • Removable side curtains
  • Uninstalled headliner frame
  • Uninstalled upholstered door panels
  • Uninstalled window gaskets
  • Uninstalled hardtop headliner fabric
  • Banjo-style steering wheel
  • Five steel wheels and hubcaps
  • Removed original drum brake assemblies
  • Removed original non-overdrive manual transmission

@stutztr4 – Is that the early head? The intake manifold looks very inefficient ...

yes the early Lionbridge BN4 cars had the gallery head. and yes they are very inefficient , very poor performance above 70 mph. the later 6 port head is far superior, much better breathing . Good news is the 6 port head is a direct bolt on fit
