Classic Car Overview

1974 Jensen Healey Roadster A few years before this car, Donald Healey had contacted Jensen Motors to produce a car that would compete somewhere between the Triumph TR-6 and the Jaguar E-Type. What resulted was a car with 50/50 weight balance, and a Lotus engine, which went on to win the SCCA D-Production class in its first year of competition. It also went on to be the best-selling Jensen in the history of the company. This Jensen Healey was redesigned, if you will, to emulate more of a Cobra than its original iteration. A 302ci 4V V8 engine, with a 5-speed transmission, 8 inch open rear courtesy of a Mustang II, and plenty of copper plumbing, braided nylon tubing, and various other materials, have now turned this vehicle into a track racer, as well as an everyday grocery getter. All this is underneath an open fiberglass hood that accommodates the distributor, and the air cleaner height. Exterior is British Racing Green, with pre-painted circles where you can place your favorite number. Leather hood straps bring back an earlier time of racing, as well as secure the fiberglass hood to the car under speed. Wire wheels with true knockoff hubs are all around and in their chromed glory. Excepting the hood, the exterior of the car remains pretty much to the original concept. Badging adds more mystery to this car as the hood sports an AC hood badge, a Ford Healey rear badge, and a Powered by Ford badge on the front fender. Interior has dark camel seats sitting in a black field of new carpet. The buckets are fitted with racing seatbelts. A black vinyl padded dash houses many gauges, toggles, and lights to keep the driver up to date on the status of the power plant, as well as entertained on a long trip. The floor shift lever is ergonomically placed to expedite going through the gears. To sum up, Ill use a Rube Goldberg quote an extremely complicated machine designed to carry out the extremely simple task of constructing a consigners soul. Into which he put his heart and soul to construct a vehicle which is uniquely his.
