JENSEN PW

Sports saloon, 4-door convertible.

Beautiful but heavy classic with hydraulic brakes and all-coil springing (independent at the front). Original short-stroke Meadows straight-eight was a lemon, so very first cars re-engined with leftover 1939 Nash 'eight' instead. Remainder have the Austin A135 6-cylinder unit with hypoid instead of worm-drive back end; most (if not all) Nash-powered cars later given Austin engine.
