1955 Austin-Healey 100-4

The Austin-Healey 100-4 was the 1st of 3 models that would later be called the Big Healeys (to distinguish them from the smaller Austin-Healey Sprite). Produced from 1953-1956, the AH 100-4 can be broken down into 2 models: the BN1 and the BN2. The 1955 Austin-Healey 100-4 BN2 was fitted with a real 4 speed manual transmission and overdrive on the top 2 gears, as opposed to the BN1s blocked-out 1st gear. The front wheel arches on the BN2 were also slightly larger, and optional 2 tone paint became available. If youre looking for an early 100-4, youll want to do a thorough inspection and verify chassis/engine numbers.
