MODEL OVERVIEW History of the 1972-1975 Jensen-Healey On paper, the Jensen-Healey should have been wildly successful. It was lighter than the Triumph TR6 and had 40 more horsepower. It was powered by the 145-hp, 16-valve, 2-liter Lotus 907 twin-cam engine that was fitted to the Elite, and it had a 7,000 rpm redline. By way of comparison a TR6 of the same period offered only 105 hp and the MGB barely 80. Top speed was approximately 125 mph, with 0-60 coming up in 8 seconds, and a quarter mile in 16 seconds. It was relatively expensive at $4,795, but not so much so as to be prohibitive.
Designed by Donald Healey and built by Jensen, the Jensen-Healey roadster was launched at the 1972 Geneva Motor Show. The car possessed roughly the same dimensions as other smallish British sports cars, though it was quite unique in appearance. It had no grille, just a slab bumper with intake beneath it, and had no exterior chrome embellishments at first. Aside from the Lotus engine, the suspension and rack-and-pinion steering were sourced from Vauxhall, Sunbeam provided the gearbox, and Triumph donated the brakes.
