Following the demise of the Austin-Healey 3000. Kjell Qvale. the
largest Austin-Healey dealer in the US. was keen to find a
replacement sports car to market in America. As a major shareholder
in Jensen Motors who had built the bodies of the Austin-Healeys. br/>Qvale was instrumental in opening discussions with Donald Healey
regarding collaboration with Jensen Motors for his next project.
Healey was appointed Chairman of Jensen Motors in 1970 and work
started on the design of what was to be the last car to bear the
famous Healey name. The Jensen-Healey was designed as a joint
venture by Donald Healey. his son Geoffrey. and Jensen Motors. It
was the hope that Healey would contribute the sense of style that
made the Austin-Healey so successful. Colin Chapman of Lotus
offered to help and Jensen accepted his company's new 1. 73cc Lotus
907 engine. a 2. 0 litre. DOHC. 16-valve all-alloy powerplant. This
multi-valve engine was the first to be mass produced on an assembly
line and produced a power output of approximately 144bhp. br/>sufficient for a top speed of 119mph and acceleration from 0-60mph
in 8. 1seconds.

Cars built for sale in Europe were fitted with two side-draft
twin-throat Dell'Orto carburettors while those exported to the
United States had dual side-draft single throat Zenith Strombergs
in order to meet emission requirements. An oil cooler was fitted
soon into the production run. Suspension was simple but effective
with double wishbone and coil springs at the front. and a live rear
axle with trailing arms and coils at the rear. all adapted from the
Vauxhall Firenza. Disc brakes were fitted at the front while drums
sufficed for the rear. This 1973 Jensen-Healey was resprayed
in 1999 but is otherwise understood to be in original condition and
comes with a substantial history file. We are informed by the
vendor that the car will be serviced and the Dell'Orto 40mm
carburettors balanced prior to the auction. Recently repatriated
from France. the car comes with a V5C registration certificate. br/>French registration documents and a fresh MoT test certificate. The
example offered here would no doubt benefit from some cosmetic
attention but nevertheless is ready to drive now and will provide
enjoyable summer motoring.
