The Austin-Healey 100 BN1 was a sports car developed by Donald Healey, who intended it to be produced by his small car company in Warwick between 1953 and 1956. Its success stemmed from a single Healey Hundred as it became known, which Donald Healey exhibited at the 1952 London Motor Show. Its design was spotted by Austin's Managing Director, Leonard Lord, who struck a deal with Donald Healey, resulting in the car being re-named Austin Healey 100. During the lifetime of the Healey 100, over 14,600 were made, either as a 3-speed series BN1, the subject of our model, or 4-speed series BN2 manual. The ‘100' was named by Donald Healey for the car's ability to reach 100 mph. It was also the first of the three models to be known later as the Big Healeys. On testing, a BN1 reached a top speed of 106 mph and could accelerator from 1-60 mph in 11.2 seconds. Fuel consumption was recorded at 22.5 mpg. The test car was priced at £1063, included taxes.
