Healey  100 / Year: 1955 / Model:  BN1


Jim :

My name is Jim Finch from Winchester in Southern England. This is our Austin Healey 100 in "Carmine Red", having recently completed a full restoration over two years to "M" specification. It has had 10 owners and belonged to a friend for 35 years whom we purchased it from in 2003, having known the car for 33 years. We now intend to enjoy the car, and the French roads are on our list to visit! See the BJ8 of Jim

Didier :

Your Healey is marvellous.
I like this color / Original carmine red !!

Thank you Jim

Jim :

It is a Denis Welch engine, balanced and tuned on the dyno. It has a big valved aluminium head and is fully balanced, together with aluminium deep-vee belt pullies. The gearbox is a BN2 with overdrive and a hydraulic clutch, and the differencial is 3.5:1 which works very well.
