Sunnyside Chevrolet of Elyria, Ohio in conjunction with Greg's
Sports, Classic, & Muscle is proud to offer for sale this beautiful
REAL DOCUMENTED 1956 Austin Healey 100M!!!!
Yep, One of 640 from the factory. Verified. Documented. Paperwork.
History. Registry. This Healey occupies its place in rarified air.
Healey made 50 "S" models, 355 Tri-Carb Two-seaters, and 640
factory M models. Last time I looked at the M registry that Bill
Meade has less than 200 of these "real" M's that can be accounted
for. If you're a Healey person you already know these numbers, if
you are a collector/investor you are looking at the most desirable
Healey after a 100 "S'.
Let's start with the documentation- CRITICAL in a Healey 100M. The
first Heritage Certificate we have is dated 1991 and in the other
section, it says- "With the louvered bonnet, this car is a genuine
factory-built 100 "M" (or Le Mans) model. The 2011 Heritage
Certificate says- The BMIHT can confirm that this vehicle is a
genuine, factory-built 100 "M" Le Mans. In December of 2005 this
car got its anointed "blessing" from the guru of all things 100M,
Bill Meade. Mr. Meade issued a certificate that this car is indeed
real and registered in the 100M Le Mans Registry. 40 years of
paperwork history. BULLET PROOF DOCUMENTATION. INVESTMENT GRADE
The folks in California and Oregon may remember this car from club
events over the years- she's been wearing red paint for a long
time. When brother John and I had the opportunity to acquire this
car (in some circles we are known as the Healey Brothers) we knew
that we had to have this one. We stepped up, had her shipped, and
immediately made arrangements to have a magnificent proper coat of
Old English White over Black Duotone metal respray done, just as
she left the factory. We spent 14K and that was a favor- we got, in
my opinion, much more than we paid for. The paint is stunning. The
metal was and is good.
We are of the opinion that this M has led a pretty sheltered life.
Great floors, great sills, one outrigger touched up just a bit.
This is one solid old car. The exterior sheet metal was excellent
at the time of our repaint (I know this because the shop manager of
the place we use always wants to let me know if there's an issue-
imagine that). Have confidence.
Original Engine. Look at the tag. Original M numbers stamped in the
hood (bonnet) of course. The trunk is a replacement from somewhere
in its past. The engine compartment and underside are nice and tidy
but have not been recently restored.
This is one very correct, very nice running and driving M. Is it
Pebble Beach- nope but it's not 200k plus either. There seem to be
very few M's available in this price range- we see cars for 80K
that need a total restoration and we see cars that are ground up
restored at 190 and up.
We think this car represents a value in the market as a stunning
driver and a model that has appreciated very well over the last
twenty-plus years. Look at the photos, we work hard to make sure
they are a very accurate representation of the car. We'd love to
discuss any questions you may have...
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.
We stand behind our thoughts on this car by offering our travel
expenses guarantee- come see the car and if we have materially
misrepresented its condition we will gladly pay half of your travel
expenses up to $500.00- this offer had been in place since we sold
our first classic and we haven't paid the money yet.... We pride
ourselves on having good cars and representing them properly.
