Austin Healey 100S
Very rare 100S Recreation, and the only UK car known to have gained FIA (HTP). Few genuine 100S cars race so very good chance that this car will be invited for historic racing.
The car was rebuilt approximately 3 years ago and the genuine 100S parts used came from the collection of Arthur Carter, one of the UK's best known collectors of Healey, who's cars included the Flockhart 100S. Therefore these items have excellent provenance. They include:
Engine Block and internals
Inlet and Exhaust Manifolds
140 MPH Clock
Plus many more minor items, too numerous to list.
In that sense the car is more a bitsa than just a recreation, and with the cost of building an all-new FIA HTP-eligible recreation quoted by one Healey specialist at £170K this car is very competitively priced. And with the values of genuine 100S cars now topping £700K(Bonhams Dec 2011 Lot 433 est) this is as good a it gets, for a fraction of the price of a real car.
