Sunnyside Chevrolet of Elyria, Ohio in conjunction with Greg's Sports, Classic, & Muscle is proud to offer for sale this beautiful 1956 Healey 100 BN2 NASTY BOY!
THIS CAR IS NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART OR UNSKILLED DRIVER-BEWARE!
Cobra Killer, Cobra Killer, Cobra Killer! Did I mention it's a Cobra Killer? This 100/4 Healey has some SCCA Race history from the 60's and has been converted to one bad son of a gun V8 monster. You are gonna need to check your drawers if you have the nerve to stomp on the gas in this bad boy. Before we get to the car I guess I'd ask this question- why would anyone buy a plastic kit car Cobra when you can have a REAL car like this that would have prowled the streets in the 60's dusting everything that pulled up next to it at a light?
Quality throughout. This is not some half-hearted effort at converting a Healey—It's all done right. Chevy 350 block from 1969. Holly 4-barrel model 4150 off a 396/375hp Chevelle, riding on an Edelbrock intake. This thing makes horsepower. Then we are going to transfer power through a Borg Warner T10 4-speed that is very tight and fast, then on to an indestructible Ford 9” rear end. Bulletproof. Wanna know if you can stop- of course you can with 4-wheel disc brakes! Up front this monster is running Excelsior Racing Competition tires on wire wheels and the rear has Fenton Aluminum Gyro Racing rims shod by 225/60R 15's just to make sure the burn out tracks are nice and wide…..
It is my opinion that this car has never been rusty and the Heritage Certificate we have for it says it was a Reno Red over Black BN2 from the factory. Rare to start with. The full vin on the Heritage is BN2-L/229933. The plate on the car is simply 229933- not uncommon in the day. We have registration papers going back to Fort Lauderdale Florida in May of 1966. Then it went to Anderson Indiana in 1966 and had just two owners until we purchased it recently…great history.
This Healey is all steel where it's supposed to be- fenders (including the rear flares), doors hood and trunk. It's also sporting its aluminum front and rear shrouds. I see no evidence of patches or repairs. Ever. The frame is excellent and red just as it came from the factory 63 years ago…. The paint is well done, very nice and just aging a bit. The grill is an excellent original- looks terrific. The roll bar and the driver fairing can be removed if so desired.
The interior is excellent and very well gauged. Inside find a very nice set of Smiths, Auto Meter, Sunpro and SW gauges that all work and make for a very impressive dash. Very clean- very nice. Just flip the main cutoff switch on, turn the magneto on, hit the starter button and she instantly fires to life with a growl.
My recommendation for this one- hit the button, mash the gas and smile, smile, smile.
Drive it, show it, keep it in a bubble and polish it as a prized possession, the choice is yours once you make it yours.
