A guy, I think he was from Texas posted a yellow JH "Spider" on EBAY last summer. Does anyone know anything about him or the car? Did he sell it? I might be interested in buying it. If you know anything, please let me know here or at johnrlb@cox.net. Thanks.

John; I don't have information on where it went but I did save some photos from the CL listing in Dallas - if we're talking about the same car. I emailed the owner to ask about a couple of the mods on the car but never got a reply. Maybe this will help.

Thanks for the pics. No question it's been modified but this "Spider" certainly looks like it would be fun and a real eye turner.I have a stock and very original JH that's so nice, I hate to drive it. I'm ready for an "extreme" version that I can drive every day and have fun with. This might be the one! Please pass along any contact info. Thanks again :)

The photo looks like the Jensen Healey "Avenger" which was how this car was described in a verbose Ebay posting about 10 years ago.

The story was that a New York waiter had told him this car could thrash Corvettes and Ferraris and was the very rare Avenger. Just the sort of automotive authority I look to when purchasing a sports car!

The Avenger - sounds like it has super powers! I don't recall if any mention was made in the Craigslist post about the engine, but it does have 5 lug wheels. Anyway, here is a rear shot I saved from the ad.

Is that a Ferrari badge on the boot lid? I guess if it has Corvette power it could be fast in the drag races.

Thanks for your help Xavier. I've decided to pass on the car. Just a little to extreme for me I guess. I appreciate your time and loved the pictures. Take care and thanks again.
