SUMMARY

A delightful, UK-supplied, matching numbers BN1 in Carmine Red.

DESCRIPTION

  • This stunning UK-supplied BN1 is matching numbers and was first registered in Leicestershire in June 1955 as confirmed by its Heritage Certificate 
  • An absolute eyeful in Carmine Red with a dark red leather interior, black painted wire wheels and a black roof
  • Fitted with the Austin A90 2,660cc four-cylinder. 94bhp and 102mph
  • Bought by our vendor in 2016 as a poorly restored car, it was duly stripped back down and rebuilt again to a very high standard
  • During his tenure, the engine was rebuilt with a new head, pistons and bearings, all fully balanced. The gearbox was also fully rebuilt and a new clutch fitted
  • The whole drive train was overhauled and the suspension and braking system gone through to make sure the Healey was back on top form
  • Now surplus to requirements from a private Collection, this excellent early Healey would be a great addition to any collection of classic British sportscars
