Austin HEALEY 100/6 Long term ownership, perfectly documented, stunning car (1959)




Is the Austin Healey 100-6 BN6 the prettiest Healey? The proportions seem almost perfect. In this case, it is also a beautiful copy. The car was delivered new in the United States in 1958 and was delivered in the beautiful colour combination that she still wears today.
The car came to the Netherlands around 2000 and was purchased by an avid rally driver. He had the car professionally restored by Austin Healey specialist Michiel Capelle for a few years afterwards. The result is not only a beautiful Austin Healey to look at, but also a car that is also technically in very good condition. The car has since built up a nice track record. De Healey successfully completed the Tulip Rally of 2004, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2010 and 2012. In addition, there are also other tours by car. This is therefore a proven good car. The fact that the car has participated in rallies does not automatically mean that the car is tired. This Austin Healey is in fact top fit. The car has been perfectly maintained over the years and drives fantastic.
The body and chassis are in very good condition. Because the car was so professionally restored at the time, both have actually become components of the car that you hardly have to look at anymore. The bodywork has of course some light signs of use but otherwise looks good. The fits are correct and the chrome mouldings also all look beautiful. The car is also equipped with extra lighting at the front, alloy wheels and a hardtop. These things also all look good and are well maintained. The car was completely repainted in its original colour during the restoration. The paint has been well maintained and still looks good.
The interior was completely reupholstered in its original colour scheme during the restoration. The inside of the Healey is further decorated with a trip meter, stopwatch and a beautiful original steering wheel. The carpets are red, as is the leather on the seats. The colour scheme is now exactly as the car once left the factory, beautiful!
The technique was completely overhauled during the restoration. The engine runs very well and is still a top fit. The transmission has four gears with overdrive and can be operated precisely. The brakes were completely renewed during the restoration and can be dosed precisely. The chassis contributes to the enormous driving pleasure and is comfortable enough to cover long distances. The 2.7-litre inline-six produces 117 hp and is more than enough powerful to propel the elegant British sports car to compelling performance. The car is also equipped with a stainless steel exhaust and sounds fantastic.
The restoration is beautifully documented. The car will be delivered including a photo series of the work performed, invoices, and other documentation such as a British Heritage Certificate. This is an exceptionally attractive Austin Healey 100-6 BN6 in all respects.
