Jensen CV8

Richard and Alan Yenseny started, as the builders of the crew, and made beautiful kuzovy on different chassis, which can be purchased from British manufacturers, but in 1936, they switched to production of own cars. Their cars of the 1940's and 1950's were large and they were one of the biggest British engines of the time, typical line six-cylinder with Austin the 4-liter. Since 1952 Yenseny rather inclined to sports cars and released the model 541, very similar to CV8 on the picture, which appeared after 10 years. Unusual advance lights or liked customers, or not at all liked, but many attracted the use of the new V-shaped eight-cylinder engine Chrysler the volume of 5.9 liter. The model CV8 was easy fiberglasovyy body and beautifully worked engine. Tube chassis consisted of two main big levers, which ran from the front to the back of the cross-suspension arms taken from the Austin, used axle with differential with high internal friction on leaf springs.
