This C-V8 is absolutely 100% original and unmolested. Well maintained by virtually one family for almost all the life. It's in very good condition.
The car was delivered to first owner on 14/01/1966. Then the car had only two owners, father and son. I bought the car from that family.

Cosmetically, this Jensen remains in almost 100 percent original condition. The paint has faded a little bit and is showing its age. I think that where the previous owner has had a cover over it, it has damaged the surface. It appears there is no evidence of damage or collision anywhere on the car. The chassis is sound.

This remarkably untouched and original MkIII is finished in the perfect colour scheme of Botticelli Blue and Blue/Gray interior, complemented by very good brightwork. The entire body is generally presented in fine and original condition.

As expected, the luxurious interior is presented in remarkably good overall condition, trimmed with Connolly leather upholstery, is entirely original and displays a lovely patina. The headliner is in excellent condition. Beautiful walnut dash. Period AM/FM Motorola radio unit, as well as seat-belt anchors.

The robust 8 cylinder engine also appears to be largely original and unrestored, remaining period correct in its presentation. The car starts first time, maintains good oil pressure and idles smoothly. The gearbox changes smoothly. A stainless steel exhaust is fitted.

Notably, this automobile is also offered with full complement of original tool-kit and jack, original owner's manual, a couple of period motoring magazines (Motorsport and Autosport) with the test of the C-V8. Even the "R.A.C. Motorists First Aid" box (complete and never used) is still in the glovebox!

The Jensen has recently undergone a service, it is in a weekly use in the (sunny) days in the Riviera, remaining as a fantastic Granturismo even for our times.

The chassis and engine and body numbers are matching. UK V5 DVLA document.
