1956 Austin Healey 100 BN2


1956	Austin Healey 100 BN2

It was developed by Donald Healey to be produced in-house by Healey's small car company in Warwick and based on Austin A90 Atlantic mechanicals. Healey built a single Healey Hundred for the 1952 London Motor Show, and the design impressed Leonard Lord, Managing Director of Austin so much, he was looking for a replacement to the unsuccessful A90, that a deal was struck with Healey to build it in quantity at Austin's Longbridge factory. The car was renamed the Austin-Healey 100. The "100" name comes from Donald Healey, who selected the name from the car's ability to reach 100 mph.

The final BN2 was built in July 1956 with a total of 4,604 BN2s produced, including the 100M.
