Customer, and friend of Bridge Classic Cars, Joerg has sent us these wonderful photos of his beautiful Jensen.

Built in 1935, this was the first vehicle ever produced by the Jensen brothers. They named her the White Lady and that name has stuck with the vehicle to this day.

A truly special automobile, This prototype (Chassis number S1/3799) is powered by a 3.6L Ford V8 which is mated to a three speed manual gearbox. Due to the dual-ratio rear end the white lady effectively had six gears.

What a stunning piece of history! We’re pleased to see this vehicle in the hands of such a huge Jensen enthusiast.
