JENSEN S 2½-LITRE/3½-LITRE

Tourer, saloon, drophead coupé.

Not to be confused in any way with the Jensen-bodied Fords of 1934-36: suspension is Ford, but the chassis is a robust X-braces affair of 126ins wheelbase, the 221 V8 is tuned to give 120bhp with special heads, twin SUs and a magneto, brakes are Dewandre servo and the Columbia two-speed back end spells six forward speeds. Front end suggests a poor man's 500K, but it's much better looking. 2¼-litre, mercifully, made in tiny numbers.
