This 100-Six was completed as a left-hand drive export model on January 30, 1957 and sent to the United States. It was assembled at the Longbridge plant, prior to Austin moving production to its MG factory in Abingdon in October of that year.
The current owner purchased the car in 1967 at the age of 16 years old. The original owner had replaced the original engine with a competition 2,912cc engine from an early BT7 3000 Mark I.
In 1982, the car was given a ground-up restoration which was completed in August 1984. The body was removed and the infrastructure was replaced with authentic Healey parts. Frame-up structural re-fabrication, suspension, Lucas electrical components, upholstery, chrome re-plating and factory-correct wire wheels were key elements of the restoration. In keeping with its original specifications, the car was painted in ivory with a red interior.
Since the restoration was completed, the car has been kept in a garage and averaged less than 500 miles per year. It is equipped with a luggage rack, fender-mounted mirrors and stone guards.
In 2009, it was offered for sale at the Vintage Motor Cars of Hershey presented by RM Auctions. It was estimated to sell for $40,000 - $55,000 and offered without reserve.
