Built new for the North American market, this rare left-hand drive 1958 Austin-Healey 100/6 BN6-L  when it was originally finished in Colorado red rather than its current Primrose yellow colour. Between 1958 and 1959 4,150 BN6-were built when the two-seater stopped production. It was restored in 1981 by its previous owner who had retained the car for 31 years. It has been owned by the vendor since 2018 when it was first registered in the UK. As an historic vehicle, the Austin-Healey is now MoT exempt; there's no record of it having had one since it came back to Britain. Modifications on the car include front disc brake upgrade, new wire wheels, and new seats and interior - the old seats can be supplied if required. There's also a new fuel sensor, speedometer refurbishment, steering column overhaul, track rod ends and a service with all fluids changed. The vendor describes the 100/6 as an ‘honest car’ that is running well with no issues, although it has been unused for the last six months. 

Accompanying the car is the V5, the BMIHT Heritage Certificate, shipping documentation, US Washington certificate of title, and some British invoices. The current mileage indicated by the odometer is 35,010.
