Description:

1955 Austin Healey 100S Replica

Offered for sale is a 1955 Austin Healey 100S Replica project with many authentic and original 100S components. Many of these components are from one of the original 50 cars (we believe #AHS 3605), and are specific to the 100S. We purchased a large hoard of parts that had been stored in southern California since the early 1970's. The S transmission, engine parts, and many of the other original 100/S components came from this hoard. With the transmission bearing the number 101, we then linked it to 3605.

Nearly all of the engine components are 100S specific, and the original S components present include engine block, front and rear engine plates, original distributor, exhaust manifold, intake manifold assembly, balance pipe, water manifold, valve rocker assembly, carburetors, camshaft, pistons, rods, flywheel, dipstick, side cover, front cover. The original crankshaft is not there.

Also present is an original and complete 100S transmission.

The chassis has been built from components made by The Healey Werks and Kilmartin components. The chassis/frame is an exact replica of an original 100S. With countless hours invested into the project to ensure true accuracy to an original S, you can be sure that you will not find a more correct replication.

The extremely rare and original 100S grille is in fantastic original condition, and is the most defining, iconic, and possibly significant feature of the model. Many additional pictures are available.

The fuel filler cap hole has been precisely added to the rear shroud, which is in great condition and fits very well. The front shroud included with the project had a one off grille installed long ago, and will need slight modifications to incorporate the 100S grille. The overall condition of the shroud is excellent.

Several other rare or NOS components are included with the sale, including new-old-stock 100S upper radiator hose, NOS 100S front marker lights, NOS oil temperature gauge, NOS tachometer, correct fuel filler cap, early BN1 rear axle, original 100S brake rotors, and much more. The oil temperature gauge opening has been added to an original RHD dash, using an original S dash as a template. Also included is a very rare and original right hand drive steering column and box with an original right hand drive idler assembly.

The chassis number is a standard 1955 BN1 and has a clear title. Many more detailed pictures are available upon request. The original components alone are exquisitely rare and irreplaceable. This car is available at 30% of the cost of a genuine 100/S, and with the huge quantity of original 100/S parts, this represents an incredible value. This may be your only chance to acquire a 100S replica project with so many unobtainable original parts.
