Mr Fitz moved to work in the Jersey in the early 1970’s, and subsequently sold the car on his retirement in 1985. There is a letter in the history file confirming the early history, and Mr Fitz had the colour changed to blue from the original Imperial Maroon, after a period of years the Jensen was given to Le Riche to restore in the late 1990’s at a cost exceeding £40,000, in 2008 the mileage was 95000 miles, as a consequence the mileage today of 97227 indicates minimal use over the last nine years. In excellent restored condition, as present being checked through our workshops, a fully restored with perhaps some early racing history to be researched. In excellent restored condition, the whole car having undergone a £40,000 restoration in the late 1990's Excellent finished in black leather with grey carpets In excellent restored condition, as present being checked through our workshops
