1955 Austin-Healey 100
Sport Roadster
Chassis #: BN1L 222089
Sold for $50,400 at 2020 Bonhams : Amelia Island Concours.
This Austin Healey 100-4 BN1 Custom Roadster was given a nut-and-bolt restoration in the early 2000s, with all the aluminum body parts removed from the steel frame, acid dipped, and repainted. The black exterior was given four coats of clear acrylic and the interior was completely restored. In the engine bay resides a Buick Nailhead 215 CID Rover engine delivering approximately 350 horsepower at 5,000 RPM. The engine includes a special cam, heavy-duty valve springs, and 10.5 to 1 compression ratio pistons. The engine is over 100 pounds lighter than the original cast iron 4-cylinder engine from 1955 with double the horsepower. The engine is backed by a four-speed manual transmission and there are four-wheel disc brakes providing the stopping power. Also at all corners are Halibrand-type magnesium wheels.
