HISTORICAL BACKGROUND: Purchased by Charles Richard Marsh from Cheshire, in August 1969. Marsh had previously purchased a gold CV8 from Wilmslow Garages, and this car was part-exchanged against the Jensen FF. 119/165 remained within the Marsh family until 2004, at which time the car was sold. The new owner was Alex Hardie, a band manager from London. In 2007, the car was acquired for the Museum.

 

CAR ARCHEOLOGY: 119/165 remained largely original, with the original black leather interior in place. The bodywork had been restored on behalf of the Marsh family during the early 1990s, and received a re-paint in the same white.

 

STATUS: Formerly The Jensen Museum collection.
