1955 Austin-Healey 100S
All Austin-Healey 100S cars were produced between February and July of 1955. The 100S prototype was officially timed by the American Automobile Association at a mean speed of 143.1 MPH over the measured mile at Bonneville in August, 1954. With this record established, 49 cars and 7 works car capable of high speed and endurance were produced. Unfortunately, less than 30 cars are known to exist today with only 5 of those in the United States.

The 100S was quite advanced for the period with its all-alloy body, sub-frame members above the chassis, four wheel disc brakes and a 51/49 front-to-rear weight distribution. Prominent SCCA racers of the day purchased the first cars: Briggs Cunningham, Jackie Cooper, Bob Fergus, Fred Allen, Vince Sardi and Jim Fergusson. The majority of the cars were painted Old English White with blue sides, the American racing colors. There were 3 notable exceptions: Briggs Cunningham's car was white with a blue stripe drown the center; Jim Fergusson's was all red as he was from Canada; and Jackie Cooper's car was a special request of Spruce Green.

The current owner found AHS3802 in Australia in the late 1990s. Fortunately, it was still in its original condition; although, somewhat the worse for wear. After many years of racing he felt it deserved a complete frame-up restoration to the exact condition it existed when it left England for the United States over 4 decades ago.
