1935 Jensen Ford Shooting Brake


Registration Number: CPG 324 Chassis Number: C18RE3233 A total of perhaps 30 Jensen-Fords were built including this exceptionally rare Shooting Brake. This vehicle is believed to be the only remaining one of its kind and used the same chassis and running gear as used on the Jensen-Ford convertible. The Shooting Brake was a car for the country estate, used by land owners and gamekeepers wishing to have enough room for their guns and to collect shooting parties from the train station. Built in 1935 by the Jensen Brothers on a Ford 48 chassis with Ford running gear, this vehicle is all original with the exception of new floors, re upholstered interior and wiring. CPG 324 was known by the Jensen owners club over 20 years ago and an offer was made to the elderly lady owner to purchase the car, but was sold to a non member in 1983. The car then disappeared until it was discovered by the current owner in 2001 and was restored over a two year period where the vendor took time off from his day job to finish the work. With the work lovingly completed, the car is described as being in good condition throughout and finished in green with a red interior. The current owner uses the car regularly, including for a number of European trips, has been invited to the prestigious Essen classic car show in Germany and in 2004 was a main four page feature in Classic and Sports Car magazine detailing the cars history and restoration process. With a big 3.6 litre flathead V8 under the bonnet and in good condition all round, this rare and unique car is supplied with a V5 document and current MoT certificate.
