The car as mentioned above was originally delivered to a US Serviceman stationed at Yokohama in Japan. It was taken back to the states when his tour of duty had ended. Im sure it enjoyed its early life as all Healey should. We don’t have a lot of early history however we do know it ended up as a static display in a restaurant, probably when it had no value. When values started rising some eagle-eyed car guy did some close investigation & realised it was a BN2 100M. He managed to persuade the restaurant owner to part with it. It was entrusted to our friend Tom Kovacs at Fourintune for restoration (1994). It changed hands twice that we know of since the restoration before finally being imported to the UK (2011)
The new owner wasn’t happy with it mechanically as he intended to do some international classic rallies and needed reliability. He sent the car straight to Denis Welch motorsport they rebuilt almost every part.

As you can see the car wants for nothing & money has been well spent. The cars been well used on classic rallies but wanted for nothing. As you can see from the pictures it’s presented in Fantastic condition both body & paint. I genuinely believe this is the best sorted 100M in the world. We have all the Denis Welsh Motorsport invoices. The car has FIVA papers,MSA papers (Historic Technical Passport). Drives like only a well sorted car can. This is a great investment & represents very good value.
Eligible for all good motor sports events like Goodwood Revival, Classic Le-mans, Mille-Miglia etc etc
