FOR SALE is my beautiful charismatic Jensen FF.

JENSEN FF 119-112. Manufactured 24/04/69 in beautiful California Sage metallic. Trim interior is the original black leather (with signs of age) and still has the working Voxon 8 track radio cassette. (Selection of cassettes supplied!). Sporting the original Rostyle wheels and original steering wheel. All the chrome is in excellent shape and carrying ultra rare and original grill badges.

This car was originally sold by Mann Egerton dealership to Dr Gaut the MD of Plessey Ltd who collected the car by helicopter (some feat back in 1969 as shown in copy of letter!). There is a documented list of owners since then and the mileage sits at 71. 00. In the last 20 years it has mainly been in storage having covered only 8500 miles. It had a full repaint at the Jensen factory in 1982 along with an engine rebuild overhaul of the Ff  transmission and the fitment of a new Aluminium bonnet. Last serviced 20/10/15 it is on the road and has an MOT but will benefit from a new fan system as these cars are prone to overheat.

A little about the Jensen FF

The Jensen FF was a four-wheel drive (4WD) Grand Tourer (GT) car produced by the British manufacturer Jensen Motors between 1966 and 1971. It was the first non all-terrain production car equipped with 4WD[1] and an anti-lock braking system — the Dunlop Maxaret mechanical system used hitherto only on aircraft. trucks. or racing cars. An experimental system was first fitted to a CV-8. based on the chassis of the Jensen 541S. but this did not go into production. The use of four-wheel drive preceded the successful Audi Quattro by many years.

The letters FF stand for Ferguson Formula. after Ferguson Research Ltd. . who invented the car's four-wheel drive system. The FF was related to the similar-looking. rear-wheel drive. Jensen Interceptor. but is 127 mm (5. 0 in) longer. and mechanically very different.

The FF may be distinguished from the Interceptor by a few styling cues. the most obvious being the twin (rather than single) diagonal air vents on the front wing. just behind of the front wheel-arches. The frontal appearance was revised in September 1968.

As is commonly known the Jensen FF is receiving great reviews as a cool useable classic and its values have been rising to take this into account. Hagerty insurance have an up to date value guide for this model. This ranges for Fair £55. 00 Good £81. 00. Excellent  £121. 00 up to Concours at £142. 00. I have set the reserve at what I believe is an amount for this good example that gives plenty of scope for the new owner to spend further on this car where needed to bring it up to the next level.

This is a rare car with only 40 on UK roads and needs a new home.
