1955 Austin-Healey 100S TributeGorgeous Restoration, 100S Engine Build, 3,500 Miles, Rally Ready!
This is a fully restored 1955 Austin-Healey 100S Tribute that has been beautifully restored by marque specialists. The restoration was performed by the engineers at Fourintune in Cedarburg, WI with the complete 100S engine components being supplied by the specialists at Dennis Welch in the UK. The investment in the restoration and build is $200,000 and it is in fantastic condition today. The Healey is ready for the most demanding tours and rallies as well as concours events. The market value for one of the 50 original alloy bodied 100S Healey’s is $1 million, making this an attractive rally and touring option.
This Healey was acquired for restoration by Tom Kovacs at Fourintune about eight years ago. According to Tom, the Healey was found in the Pennysaver magazine offered for sale by Michael Hagerty. Tom kept the Healey as a base for a full-restoration. In about 2016, the present owner and Tom set out on this faithful Tribute to the legendary Austin-Healey 100S. The restoration was completed by December 2019 for the current owner, Gary Lumsden of Paradise Valley, AZ. Mr. Lumsden has added about 3,500 miles since then. Having driven this 100S Tribute ourselves, it is fast and a blast to drive!
The livery is in the period correct Old English White. The upgraded gray painted 60-spoke wire wheels look great. The Lucas driving lights and deletion of the bumpers add to its visual appeal as well as making it look much like the 100S’s.
The interior features custom made 100S reproduction seats that are finished in a beautiful green leather hides personally selected. The leather is as-new. The dash and instrumentation is all restored and functioning great. The 100S comes with two tonneau covers and carpet overlays. The convertible top has not been installed and only the unrestored top bows are included.
The engine compartment is where all the magic lies. The 132 bhp, 2,660 cc pushrod inline four-cylinder engine transfers powers through its four-speed manual transmission. The front independent coil springs, rear semi-elliptic leaf springs, and four-wheel Dunlop hydraulic disc brakes make for wonderful handling. The 100S engine build cost just under $40,000 with all the internal parts supplied by Dennis Welch. The invoice for the engine is included in our listing. In total, Mr. Lumsden invested $200,000 into this 100S Tribute. We encourage you to watch the test drive video to get a feel for the driving experience.
