In October 1956 after great success with the 100/4, Austin-Healey announced the arrival of the new 100/6. This car was very similar in appearance to the 100/4, but this time the car was fitted with a tuned version of the six cylinder BMC C series engine.
In April 1958 the BN6 version of the car was introduced, this time featuring 2-seater bodywork although it still retained the longer wheelbase. Production figures were 10268 for the 2+2 100/6 (BN4) and 4150 for the 2-seater 100/6 (BN6) Production ended with the introduction of the Austin-Healey 3000 in June 1959.
With a total production run of 4,214, of which, 4,150 were imported to the U.S., this model is fitted with a ‘C’-Series 2639 c.c. engine, w/ 2 x HD6 S.U. carb’s giving an impressive 117 HP @ 4750 rpm. To complement this, the transmission is a manual 4-speed with O/D.
As you can see from the photo’s below, this car is in outstanding shape. Restored 3 years ago to the highest of standards, both mechanically & aesthetically. It is White with Red interior, fitted with “knock-off” wire wheels, incl. spare, mint “boot” liners, side windows & convertible roof cover. It is as solid as she looks & drives like a classic champ!
This is a pristine example of a 1958 Austin Healey 100-6.
