Chassis #: BN2-L/231533
Engine # 1/231533M

Sold for $96,250 at 2013 RM Auctions - St John's.
Production of the 100M lasted from September 5th of 1955 to July 16th of the following year. Just 640 factory-built examples were produced. In addition, roughly 500 'Le Mans' conversion kits were supplied to dealers or car owners, to convert standard models to identical specifications. The 100M featured several major upgrades and were based upon the two cars that entered and placed Second and Third in Class at LeMans in 1953. They were given a high-lift camshaft, larger carburetors, high-compression pistons, a free-flowing intake manifold, a cold air box, and a unique distributor. Horsepower rose by 20 and the suspension received larger anti-roll bars, while a LeMans-specification leather strap secured the louvered hood.

This example is a dealer-converted LeMans-specification car. It has been given a recent restoration. It has a matching-numbers engine, transmission, and overdrive. It is now equipped with a jet-coated stainless steel exhaust, a LeMans-specification cold air box, an alloy LeMans cooling fan, and a new four-row radiator. It has chromed 1004 bumpers and 48-spoke wire wheels.
