I know this is an old subject but I'm not ready to pay for the BMH certificate. I have tried to research my VIN on line but my computer skills are not the best. Attached is a photo of my Vin and body #s. What can anyone tell me about them? 1958 100/6 is all I have. Neil

Neil,

What information are you looking for that you are unwilling to pay for? From the look of your photo it looks like your 100/6 needs a full restoration, if that's the case that certificate is going to be the cheapest thing you do.

Not unwilling, just not ready. I'm Just trying to find out all I can and keep the unnecessary spending under control.

Neil,

All kidding aside, it sounds as though you're getting ready to start a complete restoration, if that's the case this would be a good time to collect as much information on your car as is available. That would include; any paperwork that came with the car, any history the PO might have, a good selection of books and workshop manuals, and yes, your BMH certificate. All of these materials will help you decide on how you want to proceed.

Hello Neil; I believe your car was built between May-August 1957 at Longbridge. I suggest you check out Derek Job website at http://www.healeysix.net
Also, see the attached details of the 100-6 from 'Original Austin Healey' by Anders Ditlev Clausager

Thanks for the information and support guys. Scott this is just what I was looking for information wise, thanks for that. As for stepping over dollars to pick up dimes, my Scottish roots would never permit that, I am genetically programmed to pick anything that looks like a coin or money in general, dollars and dimes. Thanks again! Neil

Hi Neil -

My Longbridge 100-6 is # 42288 and was built May 22, 1957 according to my Heritage Cert. Seems to be less than 4000 cars after mine. The document is a good idea as it will tell you the body color, interior color, some features and options, etc. Would love to see some pics - I have restored mine with all the Longbridge details as they are different than most other 6-cyl cars and the early 100-6's are becoming more rare. Best.
