Item Overview

Description

This quintessentially British roadster, with its first registration date of 3rd October 1958, has been imported into Switzerland many years ago. Until 1988 there is unfortunately no documented history on the car, but from July of that year the documentation present shows the diligent maintenance the Healey has received. After a change of ownership in 1997 the car was sold to the vendor in 2003. He regularly used his roadster for occasional outings and classic car rallies. To make the Healey more usable, he had a stainless steel exhaust system, an electronic ignition, new dampers and a new wiring loom installed. In addition, for improved safety, the front axle was converted to disc brakes. The seats were restored in 2006 and recovered in new leather. In 2013, around 20’000 kilometres ago, the gearbox and the overdrive were overhauled and the alternator replaced. For use in rallies, the Healey is equipped with stopwatches and a trip master and to provide a more sporting appearance, the bumpers have been removed and replaced by overriders at the back. The original parts are present and may be collected by the new owner directly in Toffen. The BN4 is in good condition and will be sold with the last veteran MOT completed in May 2024.
Deutsch: Dieser sportliche Roadster mit der Erstzulassung vom 3. Oktober 1958 wurde vor vielen Jahren in die Schweiz importiert. Bis 1988 ist die Geschichte des Healey nicht bekannt, ab Juli des Jahres zeugen die vorhandenen Belege die pflegliche Wartung des hübschen Briten. Nach einem Besitzerwechsel 1997 wurde der Wagen 2003 vom letzten Halter übernommen. Dieser nutzte seinen Flitzer gerne für gelegentliche Ausflüge und Oldtimer-Rallyes. Aus diesem Grund liess er im Verlauf der Jahre eine Edelstahl-Auspuffanlage, eine elektronische Zündung, neue Stossdämpfer und einen neuen Kabelbaum installieren. Zudem wurde der Healey zu Gunsten der Sicherheit auf eine Scheibenbremsanlage an der Vorderachse umgerüstet. Die Sitze wurden 2006 restauriert und mit neuen Lederbezügen versehen. 2013 – vor rund 20'000 Kilometern - wurden das Getriebe und der Overdrive revidiert sowie der Alternator ersetzt. Für den Rallyeeinsatz ist der Healey mit Stoppuhren und einem Tripmaster ausgestattet – und für die sportliche Optik wurden die Stossstangen demontiert bzw. hinten durch Hörner ersetzt, die Originalteile sind jedoch vorhanden und können in Toffen abgeholt werden. Der BN4 befindet sich in gutem Zustand und wird mit der letzten MFK als Veteranenfahrzeug im Mai 2024 verkauft.
Français: Ce roadster typiquement britannique, dont la première immatriculation date du 3 octobre 1958, a été importé en Suisse il y a de nombreuses années. Jusqu'en 1988, il n'y a malheureusement pas d'historique documenté sur la voiture, mais à partir de juillet de cette année-là, la documentation présente montre l'entretien diligent que la Healey a reçu. Après un changement de propriétaire en 1997, la voiture a été vendue au vendeur en 2003. Il utilisait régulièrement son roadster pour des sorties occasionnelles et des rallyes de voitures classiques. Pour rendre la Healey plus utilisable, il a fait installer un système d'échappement en acier inoxydable, un allumage électronique, de nouveaux amortisseurs et un nouveau faisceau électrique. En outre, pour améliorer la sécurité, l'essieu avant a été converti en freins à disque. Les sièges ont été restaurés en 2006 et récupérés dans un nouveau cuir. En 2013, il y a environ 20'000 kilomètres, la boîte de vitesses et l'overdrive ont été révisés et l'alternateur remplacé. Pour une utilisation en rallye, la Healey est équipée de chronomètres et d'un trip master et pour donner une apparence plus sportive, les pare-chocs ont été enlevés et remplacés par des trompes à l'arrière. Les pièces d'origine sont présentes et peuvent être récupérés par le nouveau propriétaire directement à Toffen. La BN4 est en bon état et sera vendue avec la dernière expertise vétéran effectuée en mai 2024.
