 1973 Jensen Healey Convertable

Blue Jensen Healey owned 5 years. Bought as a family pet covering less than 500 miles a year.

Car is taxed (October) and tested (May 2014) and regularly used in the summer. New tyres - recent MOT and road worthy. She is a great project for someone who wants to tinker and drive the car. She is 40 years old so I have tried to show/list all the faults and ask a realistic price.

She come with extensive history - original owners manual. radio manuals and copy of original purchase receipt (a Triumph Spitfire was part exchanged for her). Loads of receipts and a restoration in the late 1980s.   She had an engine rebuild in 2004 which may not sound recent - but thats only about 7000 miles ago.

The gearbox is tired and noisy but drivable (its been tired and noisy since I owned it). She shows signs of emerging rot in both sills and a rust spot on the bonnet but is generally speaking of sound construction. She has a clunking UV joint but thats not a major job. Indicators are temperamental and the heater fan does not work. Otherwise everything functions and she is very usable. I have lost track of parts I have put on her but  in essence we focused on the mechanicals and she runs sweetly for it.

This car can be driven home after sale.  

Car Insurance
Really. really cheap. Fully comp £77 a year (thats right) for 5000 miles a year as a second car -  from Performance direct.

Why buy a Jensen Healey?
They are cheap for what you get. different and quick for a car of its age - put your foot down and that Lotus engine howls. In the summer - sitting in the healey is a fun place to be.

Price
Its difficult to put a fair price on a healey.

There are not many left and the prices are going up steadily but they dont have the value of a TR6 or Stag. You can buy a Jensen Healey as a bag of bits for £1500 or a mint vehicle for £10k.   Realistically I'd rather hold on to her for less than £3000. So the starting point for us is £3000. Sorry I wont haggle as £3000 is a very fair starting point.  

You are welcome to come and inspect her (I am not around MONDAY-TUES-WEDS evenings) but day times are fine.   I have tried to give a clear and honest description of the car and have priced accordingly.

You are welcome to Inspect/test drive her if you are insured - but I will come along to.

Any question message me - I will check once a day.
