No Reserve: 1957 Austin-Healey 100-6 BN4 4-Seat Roadster Project

This 1957 Austin-Healey 100-6 BN4 four-seat roadster is a running-and-driving project that remained with the same family in Ohio until the selling dealer’s acquisition in 2024. Power comes from a 2.6-liter inline six equipped with dual SU carburetors, and it is backed by a four-speed manual transmission that was rebuilt in the 1990s along with the overdrive unit. The selling dealer notes that corrosion repairs are required, and a collection of patch panels will accompany the car along with the removed grille, front bumper, soft top frame, and trim. This BN4 project is now offered at no reserve with an owner’s handbook, service records dating to the 1990s, and a clean Pennsylvania title.
