Austin Healey 3000 Rally Car
In the 1960's car manufacturers proved the durability of their products,
not by offering
7 year warranties, but by entering officially organised long distance, road
based driving competitions against rival manufacturers. These International
events called Rallies caught the imagination of the public and became
annual fixtures. Lasting for several days, over thousands of kilometres, on
rough roads and inhospitable environments, it was a good way to prove new
The British Motor Corporation (BMC) realised that the Austin Healey, in
particular the 3000 model, could be the basis for a winning car. They
developed it into a world beater and became very organised, employing the
best UK and controversially for the time, Scandinavian Drivers.
The most impressive victory, was the gruelling 1960 Liege-Rome-Liege won
by an all female crew, with Pat Moss (Stirling's sister) driving and Anne
The effort was truly heroic and the girls overcame hallucinations caused
by sleep deprivation, while still managing to drive flat out. At the time,
the very thought of the so called gentler sex, beating all the best male
drivers in the world was an unprecedented achievement and did much to
uplift the image of 'women drivers' everywhere.
The 2912cc works spec engine, typically runs triple 45DCOE Weber
carburetors, a 300 degree cam and a full race alloy head. Outputs are
typically between 200 and 300 bhp. The output varies with the compression
ratio and the choice of carburettor choke diameters, dependant on whether
you want low down grunt for rallying or top end for racing. This car is a
rally car and will accelerate to 60 mph in about 5.5 seconds and can almost
The Achilles' Heel of the Big Healey, was cockpit heat (from the set back
engine) and a lack of ground clearance. This car has the works 'in door' or
'sill mounted' Exhaust to get the Exhaust pipes out from under the car..
The gearbox is a straight cut 4 speed, with overdrive (a sort of ratio
extender) on 3rd and 4th, giving 6 ratios. In this car, like the works
machines, the overdrive switch is ideally mounted on the gear lever.
Fuel consumption averages around 14mpg, dropping to around 7mpg when
pressing on. A long range 18 gallon works style fuel tank is therefore a
Austin Healey 100M sound + accelerate!! 1080p HD
In 1955 and 1956 a special Austin Healey 100/ M version was made available
to the public. The car was fitted with a high compression cylinder head,
thus increasing power from 90 bhp. up to 110 bhp. The 100/ M can be
recognized by it's bonnet with louvers, it's special two position
windscreen and the Lucas 24 heures du Mans headlamps (Be warned: many
recently "M" converted standard 100/4's are around! The real thing is worth
about 30% more!). The Austin Healey 100/M was built 1159 times.
I recorded this beautiful Austin Healey 100/ M in a small village called
Domburg (The Netherlands). This car has an amazing sound!

Austin Healey 100 6 3000 The Classics
The Classics Austin Healey.
1n 1956 my father came home with a stray that followed him from Sebring
Florida. It was a Austin Healey BN2 100 S factory race car, alloy body,
Reno red in color. For all intents and purpose a race car on the street.
The S was by far the rarest of all Healey's, 50 made and an additional 5
had made with the aluminum head, no overdrive and disc brakes. This one was
one of the 5.From mid 1956 to 1958 this was my fathers primary race car. In
1958 my sister turned 15, old enough to drive. Rosa thought it would be
real cool to drive to school in the very unique sports car.
I do not remember Rosa at least getting familiar with driving in the family
car, at that point, a 1957 Chevrolet Belair 4 door hardtop. No, she
confirmed that dad wanted her to learn on the Healey. I was taken along
with dad and Rosa, I sat in the area behind the seats. We drove out into
the country where there was a lovely 2 lane road, no trees or utility poles
to hit, grassy expanses with cows and bulls grazing. Straight in both
directions not a soul was in sight. Rosa and dad exchange seats and dad
started to explain the procedure for pushing down the clutch, selecting
first gear, then gently pushing down on the gas pedal while letting up the
clutch. In reality the way it happened was, she pushed on the gas not
realizing how quickly the engine would respond, my father was warning her
to let up on the accelerator she slid her foot off the clutch. The momentum
created by the action caused her foot to push the accelerator al the way to
the floor. Both my father and I were shoved back, he pinned against the
seat and I smacked my head against the rear cowl. Rosa was frozen into
inaction. The spinning tires were forcing the car forward under full
throttle and it started to veer onto the grassy shoulder heading towards
the pasture fence and a bull. Dad was able to overcome the g forces and was
able to reach the ignition switch just in time before our collision with
the fence and the curious bull. She eventually did learn that day, but the
reality of driving a race car to school quickly got to be too much. Dad let
her use the 57 Chevy!
The 100 6 replaced the 100 4 in 1957. The six was better in every way. A
smoother, beautiful sounding six replacing the tractor like four. A much
better shifting transmission, disc brakes as standard, the 2 inches of
additional wheel base to accommodate the longer engine mad for a more
comfortable car all around. The car still retained the side curtains and 2
seats with a 4 seat version being added to the line up. Later the 3000
would eventually become a Gentleman's Express tourer. One thing I truly
loved about the 100 4 was the fold down windscreen, from the six on they
were conventional fixed windshields.
