    No, you certainly don't want to wreck one of these.

    Hope you didn’t hurt the other guy too bad!

    Seriously, I hope you came out okay.

    Thanks. I supermanned it so got away with some bruises and a few scrapes. That was about 35 years ago; Jenson was totaled and not very old at that time.

    Dale, before Walnut Creek Ferrari - the same building hosted Porsche and Jensen Healey. Mid 70’s period. Been eye candy in that location since way back.

    Am I correct in understanding that the motor in the Jensen was the lotus motor with pre lotus bug, and that this motor also found a home albeit heavily revised in saab?

    Not quite onboard with the color but the rest of the car looks to be well sorted. I like the interior and the Moto-Lita leather wheel(Interceptor III wheel looks like it came from an Austin Metro). The car seems to be sitting a bit high in the front.

    Compressor encroaching a bit on six-pack opportunity - though maybe best as-is anyhow ...?

    In some ways, I think one of these would be a lot of fun-- any thoughts on the automatic versus the manual? Most of them seem to have the auto.

    I've only seen one manual here in the US and that was years ago. IMO the Interceptor II with the high compression 383 and Torqueflite is an impressive combination.
