We are very pleased to have had this 1956 Austin Healey 100/4 M Le Mans for sale in our showroom. This is a genuine factory Le Mans specification car that is believed to be the show car for the 1956 Brussels Auto Show. The car is matching numbers and comes with a Heritage Certificate that authenticates the car as the real deal. There were very few of these produced and there are still fewer survivors on the road today.
This car has been subject to a concourse ground-up restoration by Fourintune. Fourintune is well known for first-class Austin Healey restorations. We can vouch for their work after looking this car over because it is easily the nicest Austin Healey restoration we have ever seen. The car is an older restoration but looks and shows as if it was just restored. The paint and body are excellent and feature perfect gaps. The interior is excellent and features high-quality leather. From the underside, the car is just as nice, showing careful attention to detail that Fourintune is known for.
This car looks and drives like a new Austin Healey 100/4 Le Mans and is a real pleasure to be behind the wheel of. Aesthetically, there is not much difference between this car and a standard 100/4, but as soon as you fire it up and hear the note of that Le Mans exhaust, you know you are in a special car. The car hugs the road and you feel every dip and bump, but it’s a pleasure. The steering is very tight and the brakes are just what you would expect for a drum brake car. You have to fight the car just a little but all of this is what makes this car a 100/4 Le Mans.
Here at British Sports Cars, we get to see and drive all types of cars, but there are few cars that get us going as much as a perfectly restored Austin Healey 100/4 Le Mans. These cars are beautiful and are a pleasure to drive. Feel free to ask any questions and/or post comments.
