Jensen 541, 1956, 4 litre 6 cylinder, Imperial Crimson with new linen leather interior, manual with overdrive, spoke wheels, showing 42,500 miles. A Gentleman’s cruiser of the time, comparable with Aston Martin and Alvis of that period. A rare car with only 226 of this model made between 1954 to 1959. Great performance for its day, top speed 115mph and 0-60mph in 10.8 seconds. The luxurious leather interior seats 4 in style and comfort. One of the easier Classic Cars to look after because of its fibreglass bodywork, aluminium doors and sills, and a well tried and tested Austin 4 litre, 6 cylinder engine.
During my ownership the car has cost me nothing apart from general servicing and maintenance. I know everyone states, “will be sorry to see her go!” but this is so true for this car! I have a dehumidified garage built for 4 cars, currently it has 6, so crowded that I knocked a jack handle against one of my other cars and dented it, so something has to go! Plus, I need to release funds for outstanding work on my other cars which have strong personal connections. I have 2 new chrome bullet wing mirrors which will go with the car, I was never sure whether or not to fit them, the new owner can decide? As you will see, it has a stainless radiator grill; the original front flap and operating lever are with the car should the owner prefer to resort to originality. Personally I believe the engine runs cooler and more efficient with the open grill. It wants for nothing, and along with its rarity value, I am open to offers but not far from the asking price. This is a link to Wikipedia, Jensen 541: - details above Please be sure to contact me before coming to view and drive, as I will not take her out in adverse weather conditions. Ignition key with push button start and a unique style, when was the last time you saw one? Original buff logbook and history file. Contact Geoff, home number; the details below near Horncastle, LN9 6JY so as to Google map.
