1953 Austin-Healey 100-4

Manufactured from 1953 to 1956, the Austin-Healey 100-4 is considered part of the BN1 series and is often referred to as the “original” Austin-Healey. Presenting buyers with a new option in the British sports car market, the 100-4 offered more power than its MG contemporary did and a more affordable price tag than the Jaguar. Donald Healey’s vision for a fast, cheap sports car that handled well but was more refined than the MG and less expensive than the Jaguar quickly got underway and ramped up to more than 100 cars per week. During this period, Americans were particularly fond of the 1953 Austin-Healey 100-4, as it was an alternative to the Triumph TR2 and the Jaguar XK120 and XK140 models that were currently available. Followed by the BN2 series cars and succeeded by the 100-6, the Austin-Healey would see a long-lasting fascination by sports car lovers from around the globe.

1953 Austin-Healey 100-4 Seller’s Guide

The 1953 Austin-Healey 100-4 is a true two-seat Roadster, which offers iconic and sophisticated styling. It is this purity and classic elegance that makes the Healey one of the most desired British sports cars of all time. Perhaps the biggest Seller’s Tip that the Alex Manos team can offer is to be upfront and realistic with your potential buyers. This is a British sports car that was built nearly five decades ago, there will be issues, and buyers expect them. Whether your Lucas electrical system is finicky, your 100-4 has had some rust or corrosion repair, or you’ve recently done major restoration to the engine or body, be upfront. You will lose your credibility if potential buyers find out about issues such as these during their inspection, especially if you could have told them earlier. For this reason, some sellers prefer to do a third-party inspection prior to listing their car for sale. This will not only help you price the car appropriately, but will allow you to know exactly where you stand. For more Seller’s Tips like these, the Alex Manos team welcomes you to contact them today.
