Some of you know that for the last couple of years I have been a volunteer with the Warwickshire County Record Office Healey archive project.

The WCRO bought a Donald Healey Motor Company archive (there are several spread around the world) from the late Geoff Healey's family in 2016 having been its custodian since 2015.

Since October last year I have been publishing a monthly WHMC archive Bulletin on my website, choosing various topics from the archive material.

This month's edition deals with the relationship that existed between Healey and Jensen and I thought readers of this forum might be interested.

It is not a 'blow by blow' record of events and only presents a tiny fraction of the material, mainly featuring the Jensen-Healey period, that exists in the archive.

The whole purpose of the Bulletin is to encourage people to make their own visit to Warwick or at least to browse the 'online' Healey Archive catalogue.

Here is the link -

By the way, if you own a Jensen or Jensen-Healey, live in the West Midlands and don't have anything planned for this coming Sunday (12th) then you might consider bringing your car to the Warwick Classic Car Show.

This takes place around the historic Warwick Market Square from 10.30am to 4.00pm (best to arrive earlier to position your car). It is totally free for exhibitors and visitors -
