MY CORRESPONDENCE WITH THE JENSEN OWNERS CLUB/ CV8 REGISTRAR
> There isn't much history as I'm sure you realise. one family from new!

> All I can add is:

> Ex factory 11. 09. 1965

> used by Francis Motors Ltd as a demonstrator and registered FM 66

> Sold to Ian Roy Fox. date unknown but probably 08. 1967 when there is a last invoice to Francis Motors followed by an invoice to Lazenby Garages of Rothley. Leicestershire (details from the chassis file) and various garages thereafter. only known address Quatras Estradas. Lagos-Alrgarve. Portugal. I would think Portugal was where Ian Fox retired to. but I am guessing. Re-registered 3 HXL at some point though the register card also gives ON 6311. or QN 6311. I don't know why.

> 06. 04. 2000 gifted to Richard Fox. Victoria Road. Gourock. Scotland. Richard Fox is the son of Ian (info from Richard Fox's JOC membership application in 2000)

> However. I think there is a little more info to be had about Ian Fox as I recall a sequence of addresess for him that showed the companies he worked for (Fox's Glacier Mints were part of Rowntree MacIntosh I think but the company had various names. or the parent group changed) but I can't find that info in the chassis file. It is possible that there is another file as the one I can locate contains mainly correspondence between Francis Motors and JML. with a few later invoices up to 1969. If there is another file and I pulled that file out of its archive box when Jamie Fox first contacted the JOC it may be on my desk at work. but I'm not at work today so can't check. If I find out more I'll let you know.

> Regards

> John
