1959 Austin Healey 100-6 (1959)




1959 Austin Healey 100-6 s a two-seat roadster that was announced in late September 1956 and produced from 1956 until 1959. A replacement for the Austin-Healey 100, it was followed by the Austin-Healey 3000; together, the three models have become known as the Big Healeys.
The 100-6 featured a 2 in longer wheelbase than the 100, a more powerful straight-six engine in place of its slightly larger inline-four, and added two occasional seats (which later became optional). The body lines were slightly streamlined, a smaller, wider radiator grille placed lower, an air scoop was added to the bonnet, and the windscreen fixed.
The 100-6 was produced in two model designators, the 2+2 BN4 from 1956 onwards and the 2-seat BN6 in 1958–9.The cars used a tuned version of the BMC C-Series engine with increased horsepower in 1957 to 117 bhp by fitting a revised manifold and cylinder head. Tested by The Motor magazine in 1959 had a top speed of 103.9 mph and could accelerate from 0-60 mph in 10.7 seconds.
