The gold 1800E having lower bodyworks and paint refresh, I have decided to keep this one for a while :) 

Just in from Finland an early right hand drive Jensen P1800 for recommissioning after a long spell in a museum.

Missing its Jensen wheel trims but has the rare chrome screen and roof gutter trims in place

The 1963 P1800S on its way to the bodyshop for panel gapping before its new coat of paint. Bought as unfinished project out of France and paint finish not up to scratch.

A 1966 1800S recently brought over from Ireland in for a checkover and other works

New shocks and brake servo fitted

A 1968 green with tan S in for window alignment and other works

Phase 2 of the 1967 1800S fit up, this stunning car really is going to be a show stopper, off to the trimmer next

The left hand drive 1800E back from the bodyshop after final polishing
