In the early 1970's two long established sportscar firms decided to combine forces to build a new car, in 1972 the Jensen-Healey was born. Jensen had traditionally only built grand touring cars, with the Healey know-how the new Jensen-Healey was aimed directly at the small-sportscar market, cars such as the MGB and Triumph TR6.
Unfortunately due to teething problems the Jensen-Healey project struggled to sell in huge numbers, only 475 GT versions being built, although 10,500 convertibles were completed before production of all types finished in 1976.
