  • Beautifully restored in the United Kingdom by Derek Mayor
  • Exceptionally well presented throughout
  • Numerous national concours awards
Per the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust, this Austin-Healey 100 was completed on 29 September 1955 as a left-hand-drive export example destined for the United States. It was originally finished in Old English White over a red interior and complemented with a black top. While the 100’s early history is unknown, it was discovered in highly original, yet tired condition by Derek Mayor, the National Concours Secretary of the Austin-Healey Club, in the mid-1990s.

The Austin-Healey returned to the United Kingdom shortly thereafter, where Mr Mayor embarked on a no-expense-spared restoration, which he carried out himself. No stone was left unturned in returning the car to exceptional condition throughout—even the proper engine bay tags and stickers that would have been affixed to the car when new were replaced. Notably, the car’s original engine was replaced. This 100-4 BN2 was allegedly Mr Mayor’s fourth restoration project, and it proved to be quite successful on the show field after it was completed. The car is accompanied by numerous trophies and awards that it received over the years, as well as an itemized list of the extensive awards it has won.

One of Britain’s most iconic roadsters, any Austin-Healey 100 is a lovely driving machine. Brilliantly restored with countless accolades to its name, this BN2 surely will not disappoint on the road or show field.
