AUSTIN HEALEY 100/4 M ’ Le Mans’ BN2 Year of production 1955. Colour black over grey combined with a red leather interior and red carpet. Red soft-top and a red mohair tonneau-cover. This magnificent Austin Healey ‘M’ was fully restored, by a Healey 100 specialist in the Netherlands, in the years 2014-2017.

Since completion of the restoration this fine Healey has driven only 5292 miles. In course of the restoration the Healey 100 was modified to ‘M – Le Mans’ specifications.

The engine was fitted with an aluminium cylinder head with bigger valves, SU H6 carburettors, ‘M’ air-box and a camshaft to ‘M’ specifications. The engine was fully rebuilt by the British specialist Denis Welch. Furthermore, the Healey was given the following upgrades: disc brakes at the front wheels, 123 electronic ignition, a high-torque starter motor, an aluminium petrol tank, a high capacity radiator, an alternator, Lucas fo lamps at the front and silver enamelled wire wheels shod with Vredestein Classic tyres. The interior features a beautiful wood-rimmed MotoLita steering wheel. The car comes complete with new side-curtains and the original tool-set. This splendid Austin Healey 100/4 ‘M – Le Mans’ drives and sounds impressively; a rare top specimen!
