1974 Other Makes MKII
A budget-priced droptop with some of the most iconic names in British racing involved Ã¢â‚¬" that's what you get with this 1974 Jensen Healey. Both Jensen Motors and Donald Healey are legends for providing some very sporty machines. So a combined effort is already attractive. The styling on this roadster really captures the whole era perfectly. The sloping front end and tall headlights to show the driver the car's corners are reminiscent of TVR and MG. The bulge in the middle of the hood feels like a nod to the Jaguar E-Type. The short rear deck with crisp back panel looks like it could have come from Triumph. And the full-length body crease and trunk-mounted luggage rack seem evolved from Healey's earlier collaboration with Austin. So it's a distinct car that's also unmistakably 1970s Britain. Because this one is so original Ã¢â‚¬" right down to the badging and wheels Ã¢â‚¬" you really get a to correctly experience classic British motoring. Inside is exactly what you want on a true English drop top. Bucket seats, a grippy steering wheel, and a gear stick in that perfect position Ã¢â‚¬" it makes this a true driver's machine. This has great original-style feeling from the wood-like trim to the AM/FM 8-track stereo. Of course, no British machine is complete without a full set of Smiths gauges, including the large speedo and tach. Plus, with a well-fitting convertible top and roll-up windows, this is quite forgiving if you happen to get caught out on a rainy day. Under the hood is yet another British racing legend. These Jensen Healey's were fitted with the light weight but powerful Lotus 907 motor. The 2.0-liter twin-cam is well presented, and it has a factory-style presentation, right down to the decals. But there are also some nice upgrades like the MSD ignition, and this one is even brought back to Euro-spec with dual Dell'Orto carbs. With the competition-inspired Lotus motor, good weight distribution, and sharp handling, the Jensen Healey lives up to its namesakes and really is a great one to enjoy the road. Plus, with front-disc brakes, modern Michelin tires, and the control of a four-speed manual transmission, this convertible is just begging for the back roads. Rarely is this much distinction and driving fun this affordable. Don't miss this deal. Call today!!!
