Jensen Cars
Alan and Richard Jensen were both involved in the British car industry, and had built a special-bodied Standard Nine and been asked to produce this for Avon bodies. In 1931 the brothers joined Joe Patrick's Edgbaston Garages and expanded into coachbuilding. Moving into the coachbuilders WJ Smith, Alan and Richard re-established this commercial vehicle company and then expanded into building cars. By 1934 WJ Smith had been renamed 'Jensen Motors Ltd' and its products were sports bodies on Morris, Singer, Standard and Wolseley chassis as well as other special bodies. In 1934 the first Jensen car emerged as the Ford-based 'White Lady' sports tourer and in 1935 the S-type 4-door saloon. Commercial vehicle body building made the profits, and during the Second World War this side of Jensen filled the bank safes. The S-type was followed in 1946 by the PW saloon, which was supposedly copied by Austin as the Austin Sheerline, and in order to defuse the furore Leonard Lord agreed to supply Austin mechanics and chassis for the PW and the sportier Interceptor, and also gave Jensen a contract to build a sports-bodied Austin A40. The Interceptor evolved into 541 and CV8 variants, and the A40 Sports led to a contract to build the Austin-Healey 100 as well as other cars such as the Sunbeam Tiger. Then Chrysler mechanics gave power to the new Italian designed Interceptor and FF range. The Jensen brothers left the company in 1966 which became headed by Kjell Qvale their American distributor who brought in Donald Healey and together they launched the Jensen-Healey in 1972, but by 1976 Jensen was finished.
