Had to look very close

Man, it definitely reminded me of the only car I ever totaled. Yes, it was a '73, and yes, it was white. But I didn't have a hardtop and it appeared that the frame structure of the vehicle got compromised. Thus, it was a total loss. Certainly, looked similar ...

I totaled 5 cars. All hit by people not paying attention. At least the 73 Jensen survived. My fully restored 64 Triumph didn't. But $300. Is a great price for that car!

Wouldn't a running twin cam lotus motor be worth more than $300.00?

Apexes are a lot like relationships. So tough to get right, so easy to see where they went wrong.

The secret to a long life is ------- not dying.

My understanding is the Jensen Healey Lotus-sourced engines are early versions of the 907. You need to know what you're buying here - not sure if $300 is good or not - engine was idle for 24 years
(1990).
