We are proud to offer this very original 1958 Austin-Healey 100-6 BN4 on consignment sale from one of our customers. "Big Healeys" have been gaining attention from collectors in recent years, s they offer both an excellent driving experience and a sound investment. The 100-6 was the first of the six cylinder Healeys, ucceeding the original four cylinder Austin-Healey 100. This 1958 model is a BN4 2+2 variant, nd has the original transmission and gallery port head. If you are looking for an early Healey to enjoy and/or preserve, his mechanically and cosmetically sound, nrestored example is a car worthy of your serious consideration. It is an excellent candidate for minor restoration.
Please review market prices on these cars on Hemmings, agerty and results from auction houses. Fully restored examples are being offered for sale between $50k and $60k USD, nd complete cars are often in the high $30s. We are offering this 100-6 for far, ar less, nd with very minimal work and investment, t's value will be greatly increased.
The exterior red paint shows very nice with a detail, nd was reported to the current owner to be mostly original (the front and passenger sides of the car show signs of some paintwork and repair). There are chips and scratching on the driver rear quarter panel and minor scratches elsewhere. All exterior chrome trim is present and in mostly nice condition, ith the exception of some pitting on the mirrors and supports, he upper front grille and minor pitting elsewhere, ictured below. The aluminum trim around the passenger compartment is complete, hough with fairly heavy nicking and oxidation. There is light cracking on various weatherstripping and body grommets which seal the turn signals, ide mirrors, tc. Chrome trim around the front turn signals is heavily worn. There are minor rust bubbles behind the headlight bezels. The knock off style wire spoked wheels are also in very good condition, ith no missing or broken spokes. While the side screens are included (see photos), o convertible top, rame or tonneau cover is present.
As this 100-6 is regularly driven by the current owner, t currently registered and inspected in the state of New York. All lighting, auges and electrical components have been recently serviced are in perfect working order. The tires are fresh with roughly 50% of tread depth remaining. The inline six cylinder engine is smooth and powerful, ith no hesitation during throttle transitions, he transmission shifts smoothly and the clutch engages easily and holds firmly. Braking is excellent, nd the chassis is free of any squeaks or rattles. As mentioned above, he engine is the original gallery port head style. Austin-Healey upgraded the cylinder head design in 1959, nd many early big Healeys have had either the head or the entire engine upgraded to the newer design. This 100-6 has the original head, anifold and carburetor arrangement.
The interior in below average condition, hough it is mostly complete, issing only the rear seat. The driver's seating surface is free of cracks or tears, nd the seat padding and frame are sound. The rear upholstery on it should be replaced, owever. The passenger seat has a significant hole and several splits, nd the passenger grab handle is worn and pitted. The parking brake handle is present, hough difficult to see in the photos, s it is tucked tightly next to the passenger seat.
Photographs are shown below of the underside of the chassis, hich has surface rust in some areas, hough it is free of major structural rust, ith no obvious signs of previous repair. The body seams have surface rust along the lower portion in several places along the sides and rear of the car.
The fuel tank is brand new, aving been replaced recently due to corrosion caused by a battery leak. The battery is also brand new and turns the engine over readily.
Please review all of the photos below to see details of the areas described above, nd feel free to email me with any questions you have regarding the condition of the car.
Specifications for the Austin-Healey 100-6 are as follows:
  • - 2,639 cc 117 bhp gallery port inline six with dual SU HD6 carburetors
  • - Optional 4 Speed Overdrive Gearbox
Driving this car is fantastic. It's a time machine into a different era of motoring. The original straight 6 and SU carburetors give the car a unique and beautiful sound. The transmission, hift knob and linkage combine to give an exceptional feel. It was a special surprise for me to discover how enjoyable a fully mechanical car of this vintage can be. Beautiful when viewed from any angle, t's impossible not to love, nd parked anywhere, t draws admiring looks and questions.
