This 1974 Jensen-Healey Mk II roadster is finished in blue with a black soft top over gray and black vinyl upholstery, and power is provided by a 1,973cc Lotus twin-cam inline-four mated to a five-speed manual transmission. Equipment includes a removable hardtop, front spoiler, sway bars, a multimedia stereo, aftermarket exhaust header, K&N air filters, and a larger-capacity radiator with an electric cooling fan. The car is said to have spent time in California before being relocated to Texas, where it was acquired in 2018 by the seller. This Jensen-Healey is offered with spare parts, literature, and a clean Texas title in the seller’s name.
The car is said to have been repainted in Midnight Blue and fitted with a replacement black soft top during the 1990s. Features include white stripe graphics on the lower bodywork, “J-H 5” badging, a removable hardtop, a front spoiler, dual side mirrors, aftermarket fog lights, and a power antenna. Capped holes on the trunk lid are shown in the gallery below along with cracks and scratches in the paint.
Factory 13″ wheels are wrapped in 185/70 Toyo Extensa A/S tires. Braking is handled by front discs and rear drums. The car is equipped with front and rear sway bars along with rack-and-pinion steering. The springs, bushings, tie rod ends, and lower ball joints are said to have been replaced during prior ownership.
The cabin features seats that have been reupholstered in black and gray vinyl, and replacement burl wood trim was added to the dash and center console. A carpeted cover protects the dash, and an aftermarket multimedia stereo is wired to Pioneer speakers. The steering column is said to have been rebuilt and electrical repairs were performed during prior ownership, which included adding a relay to the headlight circuit. Worn trim pieces and discolored warning light lenses are visible in the gallery below.
The Lecarra steering wheel sits ahead of instrumentation including a 140-mph speedometer and a tachometer with a 7k-rpm redline. The five-digit odometer shows 37k miles, approximately 1k of which were added by the seller.
The 1,973cc Lotus Type 907 twin-cam inline-four features aluminum construction and four valves per cylinder. The engine was reportedly rebuilt in the 1990s and has been modified with an aftermarket header, K&N air filters, Pertronix electronic ignition, an electric fuel pump, and a larger-capacity radiator with an electric auxiliary cooling fan. According to the seller, work performed during current ownership consisted of replacing the battery, performing an ignition system tune-up, and cleaning and synchronizing the Stromberg carburetors.
Power is delivered to the rear wheels via a five-speed manual transmission. An additional underside photo is viewable in the gallery below.
