This Austin Healey 100-4 is an ex SCCA big bore race car from the 1960s and 1970s



I'm moving in a few months from my shop space and have to get rid of some project cars. I bought this out of California a while back. It has unverified SCCA and autocross history. It has been a race car most of its life. It had been modified as time went on to race in various SCCA classes. It is set up for a Chevrolet V8 and has a Chevrolet rear end. It hasn't been raced in decades but a close look at the car reveals quality race prep. This is NOT some backyard hot rod by any means. The frame is solid with just a few pinholes on top. The front end is, of course, fiberglass. The rest of the aluminum and steel body is in very good condition with almost no rust. The fenders have been flared with beautiful Torque Thrust wheels filling out the wheel wells. It has front disc brakes and a Chevrolet rear end. Sway bars front and rear. The rear chunk has been removed and is included as have the rear brakes. Notice that the rear drums have been drilled for both cooling and lightness. This is just one of the many small details of the quality of build on this car. It had a rollbar but that was cut down just above the frame. Nicely fabricated aluminum panels for the rear and the floor. It still has the vintage fire extinguisher attached to the rear of the cockpit. SCCA race badge on the dash along with a couple of vintage gauges and race steering wheel.



I have many parts to restore this car back to original and am including them in this sale. These parts include an original Austin Healey100-4 engine block, heads, crankshaft, rocker arm assembly, overdrive transmission with bellhousing, rear end with brakes and knock off hubs, and 4 wire wheels. A front shroud in restorable condition as well as pretty nice rear fenders are part of the package. Also, a very nice rust free top frame.
