    I think that the Hagerty values are surprisingly accurate.

    I’m really surprised at how flat the Jensen Healy values are.

    Did they completely miss the classic car boom?

    I agree that Hagerty values are quite accurate with the exception of Jensen Healey values. They were terrible cars when new, does anyone really care?

    I’m surprised at how high their valuations are. I’ve never seen JH’s sell for above solid-line kind of money.

    There is a whole cult about these cars. There's a FaceBook page that is amazing.

    Has there ever been a Condition 1 Jensen Healey?

    Oh, I understand the following, I had mine for over 25 years and loved it. There were plenty of guys who wanted mine, none willing to pay much money.

    I have a picture of mine along side a mint 74 at the British Car Day at Del Mar.

    Out of curiosity about prices occurring before the Hagerty graph data started in 2016, I pulled a copy of Miller's Collectors' Cars off my book shelf covering 2005/2006. After making the conversion from British Pounds and the inflation adjustment from 2005 to 2019, these were the presumed values back then for JH 1972 - 1976:

    Class #1- $7,525
    Class #2- $5,000
    Class #3- $2,500

    Note: Miller's system only had 3 condition classes for cars versus 4 for Hagerty, but hopefully the upper and lower ones correspond.

    Conclusion: Lots of appreciation occurred between 2005 and 2016.

    I also found a 2012 Hagerty Price guide for 2012 and this is what they said back then:

    Class #1- $16,800
    Class #2- $9,400
    Class #3- $5,750
    Class #4- $2,800

    Conclusion: A lot of JH price appreciation also apparently occurred between 2005 and 2012. In the Hagarty system, for 2012 to 2016, #1 cars jumped 34% while #2 cars jumped 38%.

    Isn't 2020 hindsight wonderful? o_O

    Wait a minute. Hold da phone. You mean these cars are not investments? That's what I told my wife. (Fortunately, she doesn't believe me. She just rolled her eyes. Actually, what I told her was there are a lot of guys who blow $8,000 a year on golf, and I suck at golf.)

    Serious question: Does anyone have actual sales data of a JH selling above sticker price? EVER?

    Maybe the 74 you saw at the British Car Day at Del Mar!
