Here’s a cool old sports car that doesn’t get enough love: the Jensen-Healey Mk. II. It’s not only beautiful, but it seems like a whole lot of fun. Under the hood is a 140 horsepower, 45-degree, dual overhead cam, four-valve per cylinder Lotus-designed “907” engine. Dubbed the “Torqueless Wonder,” the slanted four-pot was mated to a Getrag dog-leg five-speed. That sounds like a great combo for a car that only weighs about 2,200 pounds.
