Jensen heritage for the next generation

Jensen Motors Paint Codes 1967 – 1976

When Jensen Motors added a new colour to their range, the manufacturer’s name and their code for the specific paint colour was held on file. This listing gives a breakdown of Jensen Motors paint codes representing the company’s standard range of colours used between 1967 and 1976. This is further broken down into pre-1973 colors and post-1973 colours. It will be noted that some colours are duplicated when they have been manufactured by more than one colour i.e. cassis, which has the I.C.I code, and then the later Carrs code.
