I'm interested in finding Jensen Healey Mk II # 13921. My father was the original owner, and I learned to drive in this car.

When it left our family in 1976 at 9,000+ miles it was mustard green with black interior and white Jensen Healey stripes, 4 speed small bumper, with factory hardtop, dealer fitted a/c, and oversize white letter Michelins. I know it was intact as of 2004. Curious to know how it is, and would be interested in reacquiring it.

By the way, #13921 was known to be in California and in good original shape as of 2004. Keep a lookout for it, eh?

Have you tried Richard Calver? He's put together the master database of which cars survive and where they are.

Yes; he was able to give the (then) owner's name and e-mail as if 2004. Unfortunately, the e-mail address does not seem to connect in 2014. I've been reluctant to use the 2004 owner's name on the forum; I'm not sure what the proper etiquette would be in this situation.

Good question. I imagine you could privately run it by Greg Fletcher, who runs this site. If the owner's been a member here, he would be able to direct you. He'd probably remember the 2004 owner.

Greg did indeed remember the 2004 buyer, who resold the car in 2006. I've sent that fellow a letter to see if he can recall to whom he sold it.

The word is that 13921 was owned by Michael Mettler in California from 2004 to approximately 2006.

I have not had any success contacting Mr. Mettler.

Does anyone know where this car may have gone, or where it may be now?

Even if I can't buy it back, I can at least provide the current owner with photos of the car from when it was new...

Have you tried the DMV in CA, maybe they can help you, or one of those search company's that specialize in finding cars for buyers ???
