APRIL 1988 JENSEN GT

Unique Cars - - AUCTION ACTION -

By 1975 Jensen was a shadow of its for­mer self and the hatch­back GT was the last new model to come from its West Bromwich fac­tory. Only 473 were made and very few would have been sold out­side the UK. Look­ing at the UK mar­ket re­vealed none on of­fer but one en­thu­si­ast was will­ing to swap two JensenHealey Road­sters for a GT. One was ad­ver­tised in the USA, com­plete with gar­ish pais­ley print seat trim, at US$25,000. Look­ing back at the 1988 price and con­sid­er­ing the cars’ rel­a­tive anonymity, that US price is prob­a­bly pretty close to the mark.
