1955 Austin Healey 100-4 Le Mans
1955 Austin Healey 100 LeMans (Modified) This beauty was started over a decade ago for an out of state customer whose health began to wane. We held onto the car for some time hoping to finish it, but I got the call that he wished to part with the project. I stepped up as it started as a very solid car and had many upgrades already done.
The body fabrication and engine was finished, with the chassis already painted in classic black. Some of the suspension and the rear suspension had been started also. The exterior was finished to 600 grit, but still needed some attention. This gave me a really good start to build a really nice and fun 100.
As most of my personal cars have been built, I wanted to be able to both show this car, as well as use it comfortably. The build is to concours standards, bit with some modern updates and M Spec upgrades that could have been added to this solid BN1.
A list of the upgrades incorporated:
I’m very proud of this car and the work the great Sport and Specialty staff has done and enjoy showing and driving it.
