The Jensen-Healey was designed in a joint venture by Donald Healey and William Towns with Jensen Motors and it was hoped that Healey could help to contribute the sense of style that made the Austin-Healey a hit. Jensen looked to Lotus for the power plant as they had a new, untested engine available, thus all Jensen-Healey models came equipped with the new 1973cc Lotus 907 engine. This multi-valve engine has a claim to be the first to be used in a 'mass produced' car with a setup producing approximately 144bhp and a top speed of 119mph and accelerating from zero to 60mph in just 8.1 seconds.

This example requires complete restoration but is thought, save for some engine parts, to be complete, right down to the convertible roof. shown here in blue with a tan interior, this has not moved for some years and will require a trailer to collect. The lusty Lotus engine will provide ample reward however for the next new owner.

Interested parties should satisfy themselves as to the description and condition of each lot prior to the sale. Buyers are advised to inspect the car in person or use a professional to carry out this service.
