Austin-Healey 100S Coupe
Donald Healey’s personal 100S coupe may be the most iconic of the Austin Healey 100 models. Recently sold at Bonham’s for a price equivalent to the GNP of a small country, this one of only two examples of a factory built coupe is currently on loan from its owner to the Austin Healey Museum in the Netherlands. Built on a late BN1 chassis, the coupe has a custom interior that includes a radio, heater, very unique door panels and a few other special touches. Under the bonnet is a mostly stock 100S motor (although painted red, presumably to match the exterior) with the addition of a heater bib and a few other tweaks.
Donald didn’t spare the options as the coupe included the 4-wheel disc brakes from the 100s roadster, an overdrive gearbox, and side exit exhaust. This must have been the ultimate daily driver, befitting the head of a legendary auto maker.
