Meticulous restoration with careful attention to originality

Our 100M is a genuine, factory built BN2 Le Mans 100 M. It has matching numbers and was the subject of a rotisserie restoration to exacting standards. All the 100 M specific details are in place, including the number cockpit surrounds, larger carburetors, intake manifold, cold airbox and frame bracket. Additionally, it has the correct body stampings on the bonnet and boot bracket, the larger sway bar, and factory louvered hood. The car has been confirmed as a 100 M by the Gold 100 M Registry certification and British Motor Industry Heritage Trust certification.

The restoration was a frame off endeavor which included all mechanical systems. The engine was rebuilt as was the overdrive, transmission, rear end, steering, brakes and hydraulics, fuel tank pump, and lines. The restoration work was performed over a two-year period and was finished in late 2013. A comprehensive stack of receipts is included in the sale.

The car shows wonderfully in its Healey Blue paintwork with white accent coves. The paint is excellent throughout. The chrome work around the car is generally excellent. The car's interior presents very nicely with a matching painted dashboard and blue leather seats trimmed in white piping. The leather is in good shape with slight patina on the seats and central console cushion.

This 100M runs extremely well. It drives excellently with good power, crisp suspension and an overall tight feel. The overdrive is operational and oil-pressure is very good along with the car's brakes and clutch.

This is an exceptionally rare opportunity to acquire a genuine 100M retaining its original Le Mans equipment. Verified as a genuine M model, this car is a matching numbers example. As a 1956 car, this 100M is also eligible for many of North America's premier road rally events where its impressive driving performance is sure to excite
