100 Six


Austin-Healey 100 Six (Model BN4) Sports Tourer is a new model, introduced in August 1956 and powered by a 2639-cc six-cylinder twin-carburettor engine which develop 102 bhp at 4600 rpm. The revised-longer-body feature occasional rear seats for children, resulting in rather less luggage space, a wide mesh radiator grille, bonnet top air vent, a fixed windscreen and a semi-rigid tonneau cover, designed to protect the rear seats when not in use. The four-cylinder 100 model was discontinued in late 1956.
