Description for Austin Healey Other 1955

Stunning and rare 1955 Austin Healey BN2, 100M Le Mans Spec. Unlike many other 100M Le Mans Spec cars that only add a louvered bonnet, strap and 100M emblem, this beauty has all the upgrades as listed below.
Louvered bonnetLeather hood strap100M emblemOverdriveAluminum cold air boxLarger 1 3/4 inch SÚ H6 Carburetors,High compression pistonsHigh-lift cam
The convertible top has been removed as I'm a fair weather driver and prefer the pure roadster look and feel but it's in great condition with no tears and you can put it back on easily. The side window panels are also in great condition. Comes with nearly new tonneau cover that fits nice and tight.
Carbs and throttle linkage have been rebuilt within the past couple months and the linkage is tight and the car starts instantly every time. Transmission is smooth and overdrive works perfectly. Brakes will launch you over the windshield if you're not strapped in. Brand new lightweight aluminum gas tank installed when the carbs and linkage were rebuilt. The entire fuel system is new and clean as a whistle.This Austin Healey 100M Le Mans also has the preferred 5 stud "Hypoid" differential as opposed to the less desirable 4 stud "Spiral bevel rear end".
Interior is clean and fresh, all gauges, wipers and lightswork perfectly and this car is ready to be driven. It's quick, tight, nimble and responsive. Windshield folds up for long drives or down for the racing position.
This automobilehas been registered at the 100M Registry for (20) years and comes with all paperwork including the "British Motor Industry Heritage Trust" (BHIHT) certified copy of factory record with all matching numbers.
ThisAustin Healeyreally is a fine example of a beautiful automobile from a very special era in sports car manufacturing. I also have paperwork and pics from the original restoration from the 90's which will be included. Located in Dallas Texas and I can help arrange shipping globally via DFW airport or domestically via auto shipping company. I can also recommend some highly knowledgable and respected localAustin Healey mechanics if you need a remote inspection. I'm a private seller and am reluctantly parting with this beauty because I simply don't drive it enough, so it's time for a new home.
I'll gladly answer all questions to the best of my ability and thanks for looking.
Happy bidding!
