This 1957 Austin-Healey 100-6 BN4 is a left-hand drive four-seater that was originally exported to the United States. The car was later shipped back to Europe, specifically to the Netherlands. The current owner bought the car in 2015 and has done several restorations and overhauls for an amount of +- €40,000. The restorations have been fully documented. The paperwork also contains several invoices of the period when the car was driven in the Netherlands.
The car features a new two tone paint job finished in red and cream. The complete 2+2 interior was reupholstered in black. Lap belts are equipped for the front occupants, and the rear seat backrest folds down to create a shelf. The interior features a wood-rimmed steering wheel and dash which consists of a 120 mph speedometer, gauges for coolant temperature, oil pressure, and fuel level. The odometer shows 2643 miles. Seller states total mileage is 74.000 kilometers.
Austin-Healey replaced the four cylinder Austin Atlantic engine, found in the previous model the 100, with a 2.6-litre tuned version of the BMC C-Series engine for the 100-6. Producing 102 hp when new, the straight six engine drives its rear wheels via a four-speed manual transmission. The 100-6 sits on 72-spoke stainless steel wheels wrapped in Vredestein Sprint+ tires.
