RM Sotheby’s auctioning the ultimate Healey

As we look forward to visiting the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance, a highlight will be this 1955 Austin-Healey 100S offered by RM Sotheby’s with an estimate of $975,000 – $1,375,000 USD.

The highlights of this chassis are listed as:

*The first chassis of just fifty built of this special alloy-bodied racing model
*The fourth car to be finished; custom-ordered for actor Jackie Cooper
*Delivered to Cooper at the 1955 12 Hours of Sebring race
*Driven by Cooper, with co-driver Roy Jackson-Moore
*The only 100S delivered in Spruce Green
