5k: Peterpan’s Coffin: 1976 Jensen GT Shooting Brake

If you think the Volvo 1800ES was alone in the segment of Northern European shooting brakes from the early 70s, you would be mistaken.  A little company called Jensen Motors built the Jensen-Healey convertible starting in 1972, but added a hardtop in 1974 to create the Jensen GT.  Find this 1976 Jensen GT currently bidding here on eBay for $7,100 buy-it-now with 1 day to go, located in Florence, Oregon.  Tip from Roy F.

The Jensen GT was released just before Jensen went into receivership (the British equivalent of bankruptcy) and 509 examples were built in 1975 and 1976.  It is exceedingly rare to be seen on these shores, and the asking price seems very reasonable even when you consider the rust & electrical issues inherent to any Jensen.
