Produced from Aug. 1956 to Mar. 1959, this was the last of the transition models before the more standardized, & commercially successful, 3000 models. 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.
This is a pristine example of a 1959 Austin Healey 6/100. This car has been beautifully restored, and is understood to have won the Best in Show award at The 17th Annual World Series of Cars July 23, 2000 Jamestown N.Y.. Also, it is believed to be the same car used, with many others, in the book, Austin-Healy 100 & 3000 by John Heilig, published 1995.
As you can see from the photo’s below, this car has been restored to the highest of standards, both mechanically & aesthetically. It is Light Yellow with Blue interior, fitted with “knock-off” wire wheels, incl. spare, mint “boot” liners & convertible roof cover. In addition, the owners manual has even been, red-leather, hard-cover bound! It is as solid as she looks & drives like a classic champ!
