Lotus Power: 1973 Jensen-Healey

I stumbled upon a local Jensen Healey a few years back where the owner was asking a very low price and the car looked decent from the outside.  However, when I sat in the drivers seat I noticed the seat wasn’t attached to the body anymore, the seat tracks having rusted out of the frame, and a moldy carpet was the only thing between me and the ground.  Naturally, I passed on that car, but if you want something that is slower and handles worse than a Miata in every possible way…but isn’t a Miata…you could get one of these.  Find this 1973 Jensen Healey bidding here on eBay for $6,800 reserve-not-met with $10,850 buy-it-now located in Lebanon, TN.

 From the seller:
