    AUSTIN HEALEY - 1958 Austin Healey 100/6 Aluminium bodied by Denis Welch Motorsport

    Introduced in 1957, the Austin-Healey 100-6 Roadster was powered by a 26-litre Austin engine with 102 horsepower. The Car had a new longer wheelbase and body, which allowed two children’s seats to be fitted in the rear of the cockpit, a design change to meet American tastes. The vast majority of Austin Healey’s were sold in the United States. The 100-6 was discontinued in 1959.Donald Healey drove a prototype version of this car over 200 mph at Bonneville Salt Flats in August of 1956. The 100-6 was the first Austin-Healey to have a six-cylinder overhead cam engine with two SU side-draft Carburettors, a four-speed transmission with electric overdrive, and a new six-port cylinder head. 4,241 BN4 models were produced and 4,150 BN6 models were produced, but just only 284 were built for the Home Market as RHD.
