[Healeys] Austin-Healey 100 on ebay

There is some mystery here, if this is not just a stuffed 100 with
later six. Sitting off to the side in one of the photos is a
6-cylinder bonnet, so this engine could have come from another
100-6/3000 in their garage.

	However, there were 4 BN3s produced. Patrick Quinn has BN3/1. History
says, BN3/4 is in England, unrestored. All four cars were RHD. BN3/2
and BN3/3 are missing. So is the nomenclature on this vehicle.

	Also the radiator was moved forward on the model to make room for the
longer block. The 100 louvered bonnet is strange on this car, as on
the other BN3s, a longer bonnet was created-and they were 4 seaters.
This cars' radiator appears to be under the bonnet more than found on
standard 100s.

	Another questionable item is the center shift gearbox shown in one of
the photos. It should probably be a side shifter.

	You would have to start by removing all the leaves and sort thru the
car to see if a shade tree modification had been done or if it looked
more professional. We then might find the answer.

	Never-the-less an interesting concept...adds to the Healey lore. Hank
