1956 Austin Healey BN2 4 speed gearbox Restored in 2010 42K original miles
Up for sale is my 1956 Austin Healey 100-4 BN2. This is a very desirable 4 speed car with only 42K documented original miles. This car had a complete frame up restoration (photo documented) in 2010 on a rust-free Arizona body. This car is a matching numbers car that is in mechanically excellent condition. This is one of only 2,900 left hand drive cars imported into the US, one of 4,600 BN2’s built. This is arguably one of the most desirable production Austin Healey’s aside for the M and S variants.
According to the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Certificate (Birth Certificate), this BN2 was built on September 25, 1955, (chassis no. BN2L / 228497; engine no. 1B/228497M; Body no. 10,486). All ID plates on the car match the BMIHT certificate nos. which match the title.
Overall, the car is in very good and presentable condition which had a full body off frame up restoration completed in 2010. That restoration included bare metal respray in its original Healey Blue color and Blue leather with White piping, Blue carpets, Blue door and kick panels and Blue convertible top and tonneau cover. Everything on this car was either rebuilt or replaced as new NOS parts. The last owner then got sick and passed away in 2015 and the car sat for 6 years. I brought it back to life this year and drive it regularly. I use regular gas (non-ethanol) with 100 octane and it runs terrific.
After replacing and upgrading the parts listed below, the car now drives excellent and can be driven anywhere. It is an absolute pleasure to drive!!! The new stainless steel exhaust note, shifting and gearing, braking are just perfect. The front and rear bumpers were removed and some point in time but are attainable from Moss Motors including ever nut and bold. The stickers are removable and peel right off. The bonnet / hood is an aluminum louvered hood from a 100 M and has leather straps.
I have the original lather wrapped steering wheel, owners and workshop manuals, mostly complete original tool kit and jack, and a thick folder of service receipts and photo album documenting the restoration.
