Austin Healey 100/4

car description

£59950 After a successful period at the Cape, Warwick, producing the Riley-engined cars which bore his name, Donald Healey expanded into the American market with a series of cars with various American engines. In 1952 he formed a partnership with the Austin company of Longbridge to produce the Austin Healey which took the American market by storm. The Austin Healey 100/4 was introduced at the Earls Court Motor Show in 1952, and was a Healey designed chassis using many standard Austin parts, including the four cylinder 2.6 litre engine from the A90 Atlantic, coupled to its three speed gearbox. The bodywork was a radical up-to-date two seater, with a long bonnet and waterfall grille, and a windscreen which slid into a prone position on the scuttle for racing. The cockpit had a characteristic oval dashboard with full instrumentation and two racing type bucket seats with just enough room behind for an overnight bag, but the car also had a large but shallow boot, with the option of a rack on the boot lid for extra luggage. A well fitting hood and sidescreens completed the package. This car, OAC 536 was registered on the 5th November 1953, and the number is from a series of cars register
