​This is a very well restored BN1 with Le Mans conversion. A truly beautiful example of collaboration of well-known Austin Healey experts that won Gold at the Austin Healey Club Concours in 1988. This car was built on October 27th 1954 and exported to North America. Records of previous ownership history is dating back to 1985. In 1985 it belonged to Rich Chrysler, a foreknown Austin Healey restorer. This car has all the original body panels, except the splash apron.

An extensive photo book with hundreds of pictures of the restoration is available as well as recent maintenance invoices. The original 3-speed transmission with overdrive has been rebuilt in 2014. The mechanics on this BN1 are in excellent condition, even the turn signal actually cancels!

Le Mans camshaft, H6 SU carburetors AUC6040X etched 6053 front & 6047 rear, correct 100M distributor 40422, Le Mans valve springs, high compression aluminum pistons 8.1 to 1, cold air box and ducting, louvered bonnet and leather strap.
