This is one of few remaining and highly desirable 100-4, BN1’s. Though these early cars lacked some of the “refinement” of the later “big Healeys,” they are undeniably beautiful with their gracefully swooping lines and sporting nature. While the bumpers have been replaced with bars, this does afford the observer a chance to clearly see the excellent shape of panels beneath. Aside from a small bump to the LH front headlamp housing, this car shows no evidence of an accident history.

Desert fresh, this car is recently from an ownership of 30+ years and comes with the matching engine and 3-speed gearbox with overdrive. Panel fit is very good and rust is minimal for a project Healey. The rare, original folding windscreen is also intact. While soft materials have been brittled and stripped in the desert wind, the original seat frames, top bows and side curtain frames are with the car.
