When our 1960 Jensen 541S (the prototype) arrived in our workshops back in 2016 we discovered that the rear half-shaft was 20mm too short and not only that but the nut at one end was only secured by 3 turns.

Something somewhere was wrong. The previous owner has since been in touch, his father owned the vehicle many years and and even back then the rear set up had issues. It has been a huge challenge trying to source the correct half-shaft for the job but we are now very pleased to say the challenge has been completed. The correct half-shaft is now fully restored and the back axle has now been fitted to the car.

We have a car on it’s wheels!!
