June 2015

1961 LHD Jensen built P1800 for full restoration. Imported by us from California a few years ago, chassis number 1533

Car was 100% complete but had not been on the road for 20 years, although fairly rust free a lot of components had to be replaced due to internal corrosion. Luckily the Jensen specific parts survived.

Interior works

Engine bay fit up

Fitting the chrome: Lucas P700 style headlights look great with the cowhorn bumpers and the Jensen sidelights

Finished in the rare option colour of a very buttermilk shade of white. Patch of original paint was found under the front Volvo badge and confirmed by Kevin Price of VEC as an option shade.

This P1800 is used a lot by its owner Adam and seen outside a pub in Hedgerley on its first journey home
