LeMans Roadster
Chassis #: BN2L232348
Engine #: 1B232348M
Sold for $192,500 at 2012 RM Auctions - Monterey.
This factory-built, alloy 100M has been given a full body-off frame restoration. The exterior was refinished in two-stage Dupont polyurethane silver, complemented by an interior finished in red leather seats, red vinyl interior panels with matching English wool carpeting, and a special-order red Armacord trunk kit, along with a new, red Everflext soft top, tonneau cover, and matching red side-curtains.

The car has a four-speed gearbox and matching numbers engine with twin 1 3/4-inch SU H6 carburetors. The original 140 mph speedometer and 6,500 tachometer have been rebuilt. New mechanical items include a jet-coated exhaust manifold, a new steel exhaust system, brake lines, master brake and slave cylinders, fuel lines and fuel pump, as well as a refurbished gas tank, new four-row radiator, and all-new electrical components and cloth wiring harness.

The car has a 16-inch banjo-type steering wheel, drop-down racing windscreen, re-chromed, original, heavy-gauge bumpers, 48-spoke chrome wire wheels with a set of new Roadspeed American tires (185x15), and a spare tire.

In 2012, the car was offered for sale at RM Auction's Monterey, CA sale. The car was estimated to sell for $150,000 - $175,000 and offered without reserve. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $192,500 inclusive of buyer's premium.
