Charles de Villiers' superb Jensen ~ a one-of-a-kind automobile.
The Jensen H-type is a saloon car built by Jensen Motors from 1938
through 1945. The car was built on a strengthened Ford chassis and
used aluminum for the body panels.
The car was sold with a 4,279 cc (4.3 L; 261.1 cu in) OHV Inline 8 built by Nash. However, there was at least 1 H-type that was fitted with a V12 from the Lincoln Zephyr.
As the car was produced during wartime, the output from the factory in
West Bromwich had slowed as raw materials were required in abundance
to help the war effort. In total, there were 15 complete examples of
the H-type to leave Jensen's factory.
