We are delighted to offer for sale this historically important Jensen-Healey. HEA 4K was the first press car, the first RHD example and the first of the line to be fitted with the Lotus 907 engine. Originally a pre-production model, financial pressures necessitated it becoming the fourth production model in April 1972. In August that year it was road tested by the Autocar who pronounced it a `future classic'. Subsequently sold to the racing driver uncle of Jensen's Sales Manager, Tony Marshall, who had himself used it in period, the car eventually fell into disuse before Mr Marshall saw it advertised for sale in 2005. Following his purchase it was treated to a comprehensive and lengthy restoration completed in 2016. Subsequently acquired by the vendor in 2017, the car is said to be in fine condition as would be expected following the enormous amounts of care and attention it has received. Being the only surviving `HEA' car would be desirable in itself but when combined with the other firsts mentioned above we believe this could very well be the most historically interesting Jensen-Healey to come to market.
