It shouldn’t be news to our readers that we’re a bit mad about Jensen’s here…With a total of 8 Jensen’s in recently, and about 6 of them still being with us, Gordon and Craig thought that we may as well get some more in, so that’s exactly what we’ve done! On their way back from Newcastle, Craig and Gordon rescued these two vehicles from a barn in Cumbria. There’s nothing more exciting in the restoration world than a good barn find.
You’d be forgiven for getting confused about it being a collection of ‘two’ Jensen’s, but we assure you, there are definitely two cars there! One is a slightly dusty shell and the other resembles more of a box of parts, but once fitted all together, it’ll make two stunning classic early Jensen 541’s! We’ve got a large majority of the components however there’s still a lot we’ll need to fabricate ourselves.
Although the final plan of action for these restorations is undecided, we’re fairly certain we’ll market these two projects for sale, with the aim for it to be bought and subsequently restored in-house. These Jensens are likely to be much like the Peony red Jensen that also arrived with us in a less desirable state and was later bought by a client to be restored in house.
If you’re in search of a Jensen, we have multiple options for you. We have our early 1958 Jensen 541R up for sale, which comes in working condition, ready to drive. Or if you fancy more of a bespoke project, we have a restoration project to be bought that was formerly Gordon’s and is lovingly referred to as our ‘lilac’ Jensen, as this was originally the colour chosen by our director Gordon. This is awaiting an ambitious new owner to continue the restoration. Likewise, we also have our recent Jensens 541 which will also be marketed as bespoke restorations for someone who fancies themselves not only an early Jensen but would also like a bespoke project built to their exact requirements.
