The Unrestored Austin-Healey 100M of George Fink

While in Florida we had a pleasant surprise at the Bonhams tent where this 1956 Austin-Healey 100M BN2 was sitting.

It was brought along by Wayne Carini of Chasing Classic Cars and it will probably appear on a future episode.

Chassis BN2L/230966 was originally purchased by an architect who carefully preserved the original fit and finish for over 20 years and 37,253 miles of motoring. It then landed in the Fink collection and accrued only a handful of additional miles since.

As such, it is a stunning showpiece of originality, one that we had to photograph in and out.

Bonhams sold this BN2 for US$ 206,800 at their Amelia Island Auction on 12 Mar 2015.

    Hi Richard

    Thanks for posting this. I believe that Mr. Carini featured this car was in an episode earlier this year, when he picked up the car along with an MGA from Mr. Fink’s garage. His family had decided that with his passing, the cars needed to go.
