Louvred bonnet, so possibly 100M.

Seems a normal 100/4 https://www.flickr.com/photos/74802869@N03/8755247364 with the Le Mans bonnet, rather than a genuine factory 100M. Most factory 100M were two-tone.

"There are several categories to distinguish between the factory produced cars and others: (a) early 100 retrofitted with the "Le Mans" kit, either by Donald Healey, an Austin Healey dealer, or owners (about 500 kits issued) (b) the 640 factory-built "Le Mans" cars which were named 100M; and (c) cars that have been converted to "Le Mans" specifications in more recent years. Only the factory-registered chassis identification numbers distinguish the actual factory built originals from others." - http://www.100mregistry.com/history3.html .

So nothing to suggest (b), and (a) or (c) seem equally plausible.
