We purchased for $17,000 cost another $2,000 to have delivered state-side and we’ve put another $12,000 – $15,000 into since we’ve owned. Car is ready to be enjoyed. Thank you."

So, $31K to $34K invested ... is this an April Fools joke?

Sander,

A nice GT to be sure, it still needs a few things (headliner, seats for example) but for the price not a bad deal.

Like you I found the whole sale a bit puzzling. First he buys a Jensen GT with a bad motor for $19,000, not a great deal. Then drops another 12K to 15K on it. And finally turns around sells it with no reserve for $13,500. So apparently he lost around $20,000 on the deal! Seems a bit fishy to me.

I'm wondering if the seller inflated the numbers to make it appear the car is more valuable than it actually is.

... and renew dashboard. What's up with that brake master and fuse panel? Some pictures in snow, some with car blue and then green. The billing statements are interesting. Yes, more questions than answers with this one.

If the new owner is reading this contact me for Dellorto's and intake manifold.
