The performance of the CV8 in 1965 was shattering, offering a proper 4 seat car, capable of a genuine 130mph, probably the fastest 4 seater in the world at that time, with incredible build standards and road manners it is often underappreciated, fitted with the bombproof Chrysler 6.2 V8 mated to a torqueflite gearbox much of the frailty and pain of classic car ownership is eliminated due to the robust and easily looked after V8 setup, a read through contemporary road tests will give an idea of how well this car was considered in period. This car has had in the region of £15000 spent in the past 4 years to ensure it is as well sorted and reliable as possible, this expenditure is in addition to an engine and transmission overhaul carried out by the respected Jensen specialist, Appleyards, just prior to purchase, works carried out since purchase include brake system replacement, Calipers have been upgraged to the Fosseway system all round with vented discs up front , electrical system, this has had significant work to ensure all working reliably, including fitting of a modern Hi torque starter, suspension and steering components have been extensively replaced wherever required, although there is no legal requirement to have the car MOT’d it has always been done so in the current ownership, the current MOT expires 13th June 2020 Paintwork is superb and has only very minor flaws, excellent panel fit throughout, Structure of car has been explored extensively and is very good , chrome is good, all in all a superb car which is about as good as it can be without being too good for regular use. Offered for sale at £59500,over the past 6 or 7 years I have not seen another for sale which appears to represent better value Access to a ramp is possible at my private garage, there are also 2 high end local classic car specialists with superb reputations, I am sure either would be prepared to offer an independent inspection service if asked, test drive is welcome on production of insurance and security, delivery anywhere in UK can be arranged.

Built in 1964, this particularly original car was once owned by the actor, Sean Connery. In fact, Connery purchased the car just as he had finished the James Bond movie, You Only Live Twice.
