This car came from the first series (BN1) of cars developed by Donald Healey in Warwick, U.K., built between 1953 and 1955.

The BN1's used the same 2660cc in-line 4-cylinder engine as the Austin A90, with the 3-speed transmission modified with and overdrive on second and top gears. Power output was 90bhp.

The "100" name came from the 100 mph top speed.

  • Hmm, I'm trying to decide if I like the color...

    • It's unusual, isn't it? British Racing Green would have worked a little better. I doubt it's an original colour. but who knows?

  • There is a strong Healey club in South Africa so I've seen a couple of these. They are very nice and the people love to use them for classic racing.

    • Healey owners do seem to form strong clubs everywhere, which is good. And they're perfect for classic racing - light, simple and relatively reliable, so that makes sense too!
