Rare original UK supplied RHD Jensen GT Shooting brake, 2.0 lotus engine – one of only 234 made and one of four made in Jensen Silver. Recent ground up restoration – receipts for £000’s – bare metal respray, full stainless steel (including manifold) specialist performance exhaust, full interior and engine overhaul, refurbed original alloys, rare black corduroy and ambla interior, MOT to Aug 2019.
Auctioneers note: This beautiful car has recently had, we are told, a total restoration.  The service file, which is full of invoices for the work carried out, amounts in money to thousands of pounds, including one invoice for the re-painting of the car for £3,120.  In its files, there is a nine-page review which looks at the Jensen GT, written by the well-known and respected author Richard Calver.  It makes fascinating reading and it is worth pointing out that originally they were thinking of putting a Vauxhall engine into this car, but they could not get enough power into it, so they ended up putting in the Lotus 2 lit engine they used in the Jensen Healey.  These engines produce 144 BHP giving a 0 – 60 in 8.7 sec.  As mentioned before they are only 218 RHD cars made in a total production run from October ’75 – May ’76 when Jensen’s went into liquidation.  She comes with an MOT expiring on 13.8.19, also handy to have is the original Owners Handbook and Service Book (no stamps) and a copy of “Auto Car” dated 10.1.76 when they fully road tested the GT.  She has an old V5 and I can only say she is a cracking car. May be viewed, by appointment.
