Lot #959.1 - One of 3,900 ever made and is one of the most sought after by collectors. With its simple to tune H6 carburetors and longer wheelbase, yet the classic elegance of the 100-4 two seater configuration. This car has benefited from a total nut and bolt frame-off restoration by Tom and Randee Rocke, Healey Lane of Riverside, California. Dupont two-stage polyurethane 5-star chroma base paint, color Nasa Blue, was used for the exterior color of this car. The body panels and chassis were shot blasted to bare metal before being painted with the basecoat color and then the clearcoat. Complete new interior, blue seats with silver trim, matching blue wool carpets, new panel kit, new truck kit, new side curtains, blue top and blue Tonneau cover. All chrome, interior and exterior pieces are triple platted. All new parts were used when rebuilding the upgraded 3.0L/130hp engine, transmission and overdrive, and the ancillary systems were given the same treatment. All new cloth wiring harness has been installed along with new or rebuilt electrical components. A complete new fuel system was installed, including new tank and lines all the way up to the newly rebuilt 1.75 SU carburetors. The exhaust has been jet-coated and fitted to a new steel exhaust system. All new brake lines, master cylinder, front disc brakes and jet-coated rear brake drums. New front and rear suspension, Dunlop chrome wire wheels and road speed tires. No expense was spared in this restoration as most or all parts were purchased new from England. A fully documented photo restoration and British Heritage Trust Certificate accompanies this car.
