I'm a Car Crazy Guy with a passion for my first Jensen Healey. It's not everything I expected from the ad in which I purchased it, but it has a strong motor. Driving it is a blast as its fast and nimble. I'm looking forward to the restoration as it needs several odds and ends. I recently bought a set of 15 inch VTO Wheels from Greg Fletcher and they should arrive today. My plan is to mount a set of Dunlop 205 50 15's and have some fun.

Overall its a great car and I'm sure I'll get it the way I want it if I'm patient.

Looking forward to getting to know the Jensen Healey community here in Southern California.

Looks like it's in great condition. Stock engine? where in SoCal?

Thanks everyone for your comments. I live in Northridge California and would love to hook up with any Jensen owners nearby.

My car has a stock engine with great compression. The Jensen Healey 8 Track radio works sometimes. and I fixed some broken wires yesterday and the clock started running. It runs fantastic and I only hope to have it in the family a long time. I do need a hazard switch which I hope will fix my turn signal problem.

Anyway I'm putting my VTO rims on tomorrow and I'll post more pics.

Thanks again.

Marc G.

Looks great - enjoy.  I'm jealous as I still don't have one.  There are a bunch available but all are out your way and I keep hoping to find a rust free one on the east coast I can drive home.  Keep us posted on the work !
