110 HP, 2660 cc, Overhead Valve In-Line 4-Cylinder Engine, 4-Speed Transmission with Overdrive Chassis No. BN2L230235 Introduced late in the 1955 season, the second generation of the little 100-4 roadster saw a number of improvements such as a new 4-speed transmission, improved valves and increased carburetion. While this car really put Austin-Healey on the map it was its exploits on racetracks around the world that would win it legions of fans, especially with the "M" or Le Mans version. Using a curved Plexiglas windscreen rather than the regular production unit was one weight saving edge, and the louvered hood with a leather hold-down strap were safety features. Most important was the pair of 1.75" H6/SU carbs combined with a tuned suspension that really allowed this car to take so many checkered flags. This example has been finished in red and is ready to hit the track. From the knock-off argent painted wire wheels to the well-detailed engine compartment, this car is ready to go. The passenger side door has been secured soo it won't open during competition, and the wood-grain steering wheels adds to the flavor of a real sports car. We also spotted an oil-cooler up-front and the bodywork looks to be in quite serviceable condition. This car has been raced and while there are no signs of a major crash it does show a bit of stress from its share of track time. While the odometer shows a little over 28,000 miles we do not know its true mileage. With a little mechanical attention, this little Austin-Healey would be a great addition and sure to bring plenty of fun to those who get to experience its handling and performance.
