APRIL 1988 JENSEN GT
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.
