According to the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust Certificate, this original RHD Austin Healey 100/6 (BN4) Four Seater - Chassis No: BN4-0/38340 and Engine No: 1C/H38340 was built in Longbridge, Birmingham on 10th April 1957 and was finished in Ivory White over Black with a Black vinyl interior piped in White, Black carpets, a Black Vinyl Soft Top and Side Screens, stove enamelled Wire Wheels, Overdrive, Laminated Windscreen and less Heater (although it has now had a Heater fitted) and it was delivered to BMC Distributor The Bromley Motor Works in Kent. It was then sold by BMC dealer Johnson and Brown in Bromley to its first owners - Goodhale Engineers Ltd in London, SE23 and first registered on 17th May 1957 with the number plate 6 AKM. The car remained in Goodhale Engineers ownership for 19 years until February 1976 when it was sold to a Mr N Mallinson from Tadcaster in Yorkshire. He only drove the car for a couple of years before storing it in a garage where it remained untouched for 10 years before being purchased by the third owner a Mr Charles Pettingell from Collingham in Yorkshire on 5th October 1988. Mr Pettingell subsequently embarked on a total restoration of the car in 1989 which included many new body panels and associated parts - all supplied by Austin Healey Spares. We do not know why, but it seems that a replacement Engine - No: 29DRU202 was obtained and rebuilt along with its gearbox by the Northern TR Centre in Cleveland in February 1989. There is a large photo album of this restoration along with a huge number of invoices for all parts replaced and for works carried out in the history file. He kept the car for 10 years before selling it to a Mr David Fox from Otley in Yorkshire on 2nd August 1999 and he kept the car for 8 years and there are lots of invoices in the file for servicing and a few repairs during his ownership and also a correct and original 2639cc Engine - 1C-H/42842 from 1957 was reinstalled along with a Denis Welch Motorsport Fast Road Aluminium Cylinder Head. He sold the car to an Italian - Mr Giacomo Spallasso in September 2007 and it was registered in Cabella Ligure, Italy on 21st September 2007 and registered with the Automotoclub Storico Italiano in 2007 with its Certificate in the file. Mr Spallasso carried out lots of restoration works on the car including a full repaint in Colorado Red over Black and after 6 years it was sold to a friend who was a Monaco resident - Mr Franco Dapino on 15th October 2013 and registered in Monaco. He barely used the car and it spent most of its time either in his garage in Monaco or in storage at a friends garage near Milan. Being a Right Hand Drive car, he contacted us about selling it in the UK and we bought it from him and shipped it back to England last year. During our re-commissioning and preparation of the car last summer, we unfortunately discovered that the head gasket had blown and the oil pressure was reading very low, so specialist Crown Classic Cars in St Margarets carried out a complete rebuild of the engine and works also included a new Clutch and clutch hydraulics and full brake overhaul + many new ancillaries as can be seen on their invoice. The total cost of the works came to £13,640.05 with £6,664.21 spent on parts alone! The engine is now really quiet and smooth and the car runs beautifully and after 500 miles or so the new owner will need to have the cylinder head re-torqued down before it can be driven in haste. Upon sale, the car will come with a new MOT and our own standard 6 months Mechanical Breakdown Parts & Labour Warranty. The car is of course Road Tax Free, MOT exempt and ULEZ compliant and very cheap to insure with a Classic Car Policy - see a list of Classic Car Insurance brokers on our Links page: https://www.classic-chrome.net/useful-links - and it is also eligible for the Mille Miglia!
