Florida Green 1956 Austin Healey 100M

One of the many outstanding cars from last weekend’s Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance was this 100M from Larry and Wendy Titchner of Toronto, Canada.

This car was owned by a single family from the early 1960s until the current owners purchased it in 2010.

It is also certified by the 100M Le Mans Registry to be one of the 640 factory built 100M models.

Hagerty’s Own E-Type

While researching the gauntlet panel/shift dome/shift tower for our E-Type I decided to lookup McKeel Hagerty’s own 1966 E-Type.

That’s because his car is a 20,000-mile, original-paint and original-interior survivor.

The car is almost completely untouched from original delivery minus a few items like hoses, clamps, ignition loom and header tank.

Here it is pictured from the 2015 Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance. Chassis 1E11307 for reference.
