Austin-Healey 100

The Austin-Healey 100 is a sports car that was built by Austin-Healey from 1953 until 1956. The "100" was named by Healey for the car's ability to reach 100 mph; its successor, the better known Austin-Healey 3000, was named for the 3000 cc displacement of its engine.

The 100 was the first of three models later called the Big Healeys to distinguish them from the much smaller Austin-Healey Sprite. The Big Healeys are often referred to by their three-character model designators rather than by their models, as the model names do not reflect the mechanical differences and similarities well.
