In a desperate attempt to save the company, Jensen unveiled the Jensen Healey roadster in 1972. The initial response from American buyers was good since the car was a modern take on the outdated MG and Triumph offerings. Under the hood was a 2.0-liter Lotus-derived engine with around 100 HP that delivered a modest performance.
However, the modern design and nice stance attracted buyers. As all British cars from the ‘70s, the Healey had problems with rust and electrics. And that is why they are so budget-friendly today. However, if you are looking for an interesting, rare car with a Lotus engine, this could be your best bet.
