Just found loads of old photo's on paper and amongst them were these from year 2000 I think. Don't believe I have seen the Jensen Nova since.

Fantastic!
the rear 3/4 side profile reminds me of the Oldsmobile 442 - which is no bad thing.

I remember seeing it, and chatting to the owner briefly. It looked absolutely gorgeous, better in the flesh, even though these are good photos.

Not wishing to be ignorant, but where is it now and what condition is it in? Does it still reside in France, as it has what looks like French plates on it?

would love to see it in the flesh.

The car still resides in France indeed ( a suburb of Paris) and afaik is still in great condition.

Thanks for replying Han, may be a chance of seeing it one day.

A good looking car, but the rear light treatment doesn't sit quite right for me, as most teachers would say, and frequently did on my reports " could do better" Anybody recognise what the lights are from, they look familiar but can't place them. I thought Maserati Bora/Merak, but not so.

looks a bit like a '66 Olds Toranado...which is a compliment as far as i'm concerned.
Yeah, the taillights are not ideal, but overall a special looking car.

Thanks Cannonball,

Iso Lele, there's another car on my bucket list, never had the pleasure until setting eyes on one in the museum in Turin. Sad to say I was very excited and it didn't disappoint.

For me, the Nova has a touch of early Mustang fastback:

Toronado for me too. That's what I meant when I mistakenly said Olds 442.
