Well folks,
it's official I should be committed.
I just purchased a 1974 Jensen Healey! Though not a candidate for V8 conversion, it does come complete with a stroked 2.2 Liter lotus 907E with Dellorto carbs Dyno tested at 217 HP. My plan is to drive this one while I work on the Stag W/Ford 302 4v.

Nice looking J-H.

We have an original in the shop right now that is a bit on the rough side and another that is going through a conversion.

What it really means is you are in the club. Having a fast driver while you work on the real one is cool. you can always sell it after the real one is done. If you don't break even on it ,,,you just call it a rental !

Dan,

That looks like a great specimen. Can't believe you were able to find a non-rusty one close to home!
