300% More Power: 1955 Austin Healey 100 V8 Custom

This 1955 Austin Healey 100 (chassis 1B226361) not only looks really clean and well-prepped, it’s also a pretty wild custom with a 370 HP Corvette 350. It’s said to be in showroom condition, and to have done 6,000 total miles on the engine and body since rebuild, meaning it should be nicely sorted. We agree with the seller that it looks like something Carroll Shelby would’ve put together had history gone a bit differently. Find it here on eBay in Southampton, New York for $59,000 OBO. Special thanks to reader John R. for the submission!

The car is gorgeous - I don't think there is a prettier roadster than the AH 100. I wonder what was done to the suspension besides the disc brakes. The guy should be shot for putting those wheels on the car.
