Sport Roadster
The Austin-Healey 100 was introduced in October of 1952 at the Earls Court Motor Show. The first Austin-Healey 100's were known as 100/4 or BN1. The name 100 came about by being able to break the 100 mph barrier. It offered genuine performance, dramatic styling and open motoring at an affordable price. It featured a 2,660cc engine capable of 94 horsepower. Not only did it win the hearts of enthusiasts it also proved its worth in international sports car racing.

In October of 1955, the BN2 was introduced. The BN2 was similar to the original 100 in design, but now featured larger drum brakes and a new four-speed transmission with overdrive. During its production run, 3,924 examples of the BN2 were produced.

Introduced in 1957, the Austin-Healey 100/6 Roadster was powered by a 2,639cc Austin engine with 102 horsepower. The car had a new, longer body, which allowed two children's seats to be fitted in the rear of the cockpit. The new model was heavier and less sporty than its predecessor, but it appealed to a wider clientele.

Donald Healey drove a prototype version of this car over 200 mph at the Bonneville Salt Flats in August of 1956. The 100/6 was the first Austin-Healey to have a six-cylinder engine with two SU side-draft carburetors, a four-speed transmission with electric overdrive, and a new six-port cylinder head. In 1957, 7,382 100/6s were produced, with the vast majority of them being sold in the United States.

The current owners acquired this car from the original owner in 2011. It has 15,600 original miles and remains in as-built condition including the original paint, interior, undercarriage and even the Dunlop Roadspeed tires.
