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.

BJ8 Restoration: Part 6: Engine Installed

IMG_8394

The engine has landed. Lucky for us BMC used light metallic green on the engine so we could apply a very nice base/clear finish on our restoration car.

In typical BMC fashion everything was installed on the engine prior to paint so we mimicked that process, somewhat.

At the factory even the alternator, fan belt, breather hoses and exhaust manifold were painted with the engine.

A couple items I forgot were the intake drain tubes and vacuum advance line which are also green.

BJ8 Restoration: Part 6: Chassis Buildup

Our long-term Healey BJ8 restoration is ready for the engine and interior.

Since our last post the suspension, steering, wiring harness, dashboard and rear shroud have been installed.

Some notable additions include a Fuel Flow maintenance-free fuel pump, the autosparks wiring harness with alternator, radio and fog light mods, a 3.9 Dennis Welsh rear axle, and a wooden dashboard finished by Coventry Woodworks.

Tribute to Rudi Koniczek

Mercedes-Benz 300 restorater Rudi Koniczek is being celebrated today as a feature of the 2016 Canadian Concours d’Élégance.

He is the 300SL boss and has worked on over 10% of the complete 300SL production as well as other interesting showcars.

Local talent Mike Grams of Coachwerks and Electroshine in Sidney should also get a mention as their hard work is also seen on these cars.

Naturally we were drawn to the 1956 Austin-Healey 100M of Chris Yarrow which is an absolute show stopper.

Presented by Hagerty, the Concours d’Élégance is part of the 2016 Luxury & Supercar weekend held at the Van Duesen Gardens.
