1956 Austin-Healey 100-4
This car was brought to us with a painted inner body/chassis and body work completed to the outer panels. Unfortunately, all previous body work is to be removed and we will be performing a concours quality paint job. Restoration will also include a new interior. Restoration was completed in April 2017.
Please scroll down for photos of the restoration.
Restoration was completed and the car has returned to her owner. The end product was a reliable Austin-Healey that will turn heads and win car shows. The color is very subtle, and when accented by the fantastic red interior, really draws your eye. The car runs and drives fantastic, and will be enjoyed for many more years to come.
