I bought Jensen Healey eight years ago from Holland. The car was great runner, and I drove it home without any problems. The first run from Rotterdam to Rostock Germany was about 700 km and then with ferry from Rostock to Tallinn.
Because I have difficulties with the English language my point is - One picture says more than a thousand words ;-)

Happy new JH owener in Holland



JH in the new home



First year I took part in several events for historic cas in Estonia and Latvia.

You're right, this does look familiar. Nice job! I've done pretty much everything you've done, repairing rust in the exact same places, except for the floor pans which is this winter's project (drivers side is done, passenger side is in progress).
