Interior pics from today, I think it's obviously a good thing this car sat in a closed garage for the last 17 years, the interior isn't that bad to be honest, needs some work, but I have work galore already.... LOL

440 HP engine, steel crank and all.... The engine is completely rebuilt and the tranny too, but it has to come out down the road and get some serious detailing, it wasn't done for looks... hahaha

I already got it running...

I've always liked these cars.

They make you stop and stare no matter who you are.

Cool...I love old British cars... back in Ohio, near my Mom's place is a white '60s Cortina...it's been sitting outside a garage in this small Ohio town for at least 15 years...would love to have the time and place to tinker with it.

Very cool.

Almost like the grandfather of the Porsche 928....

(who's designer, BTW: credited the AMC Pacer for the rear end!)

Now that is a hybrid I'd love to own! :)

It's a Coupe I've had since the early 80's.

Here ya go Sixty8panther, this Jensen isn't waht my buddies call "bland".

They all call it UGLY.

hahahah... how could I forget about your crazy UK-USA hybrid?

No matter if people call it ugly it's SOMETHING other than boring.

While I wouldn't call it gorgeous in terms of styling it's def. cool

as hell considering its' rarity, powerplant & near-exotic status in

the weird/independant category....

Can you guys excuse me for a sec... I need a cold shower.

This kind of thread is why C&G is my home on the 'net

despite all the threads about modern $h!boxes that raise

my blood pressure & piss me off.
