Another curiosity: 1964 JENSEN CV8 MKII.

From 1964, Chrysler 8 Cylinders, 330 HP. Not the kind of cars I expected from Jensen. You? Best, Nicolas ...  

It looks super cool!

Thanks for looking, mon ami.

Agree. Eesh.

Never seen this before, and would not have guessed it’s a Jensen.

Growing up there was a junkyard in the next town over that had a wrecked Jensen Interceptor visible right next to the fence. It was brown. Every time I drove by I couldn’t help but think it was a shame to see it there.

Yes, a wonderful Grand Tourer.

Wasn't it in a TV series, too?

I meant the Interceptor.

 
 By: amanico : September 14th, 2023-14:41

Yes, that’s what I thought you meant.

Didn’t think the CV-8 made it to TV 😁.

Same :)))

Yes, I have to agree.

I enjoy how the lines evoke

Jensen's history as a high-end car body manufacturer: there are details reminiscent of prestigious designs of times long gone.

They came close to something exceptional.

But I agree: there is an issue with this overflowing carrosserie around the front lights, lost in vacuum and sheet metal.

Agreed!

Neighbors

Our next door neighbors when I was a child had a string of fascinating cars, and this was one of them, along with a Ford Galaxy 500 Convertible in red, an early Saab and a Volvo “Goddess”. Was he a car journalist? I don’t recall but I did manage to catch ... 

Lucky you!

This was the car…

…that ‘made’ Jensen (Classic Car magazine has just published a retrospective of the three model series). All fibreglass body. Serious grunt! And any Frenchman wondering about the front end needs to remember the Facel Vega. 😀 What’s not to love? Cheers, pp...
