During the restoration process, a team of technical experts offered their ongoing advice during its rebuilt. Roger Moment USA Concourse Committee and acknowledged expert as well as John Harper UK Healey Registrar and Healey Tech expert have given this vehicle a tick of approval. Its chrome work is noted to be a template of ‘R. Gordon’s Car’ (previous USA concourse winner).

A vehicle that sets the benchmark across all restorations, this high-grade example showcases the beauty of these cars. The Austin Healey 100/4 was a vehicle ahead of its time and one in this condition is a true time capsule to them rolling off the factory line.
The 100/4 was the first of the “Big Healey’s” – its powerful 90hp 2660cc inline-4 engine, allowing the car to reach 100mph with ease. The 3-speed manual transmission with overdrive, shifts seamlessly and the steering feels precise. Set up for touring.
