If you could fit in any LBC this would probably be the one.

Unless this guy has made you a offer you can't refuse I wouldn't be in a big hurry to buy it, we're not talking Elva Currier or Lotus Super 7 here, these days Jensen-Healeys are like buses, if you miss this one there'll be another one along in 20min or so.

Also if you're shipping across country you're looking at around $1500.

I don't know what your budget is but it's not hard to find a J-H in excellent condition for $15,000 or less. If you're willing to be patient, 6 to 12 months if necessary, you can probably find one closer in excellent condition with all those upgrades you want already installed.

IMHO since they are so affordable and you've never seen one you'd be much better off with a car in excellent condition than trying to save a few bucks with a project car.

Thanks noomg! I agree that it's better to buy a car with all modifications done. I'm keeping an eye out. The JH in Riverside looks good and *could* be a good price - Even with cross-country transport and some work. We'll see.
