Hi Steve,

Just re confirming this car is ON THE ROAD.  Please note that I discovered on registration that engine is not original. New engine number is E1352/15D.  Have no idea when it may have been changed over.   Also new/current registration plate is JIV869. Think you know what that means.

Cheers - Rod

Hi Steve,

Here are some pics fresh off the press. Still need to sort out some brake and power steering issues. Drove it for the first time today and looking forward to getting it registered and on the road proper.  The Mark 1 was never fitted with air. It was never designed to take integrated air. I have seen a couple of examples where the condenser is at the front and then they have run copper pipes under the full length of the car and they then join an evaporator in the rear trunk with air vents blowing from behind and forward onto the drivers neck.

I have built an integrated system with all ac air going directly through front vents into drivers face etc.  I have done a  lot of surgery behind the dash to make this possible.  In effect the aircon is permanently in recirculating mode. And it is all hidden. I believe this may be unique. Getting system gassed tomorrow so hopefully some nice cold air coming in my face soon.

Car looks gunmetal in pics but it is really a beautiful silver green color called Prussian Steel. Really suits an English classic like the Jensen.

Cheers - ROD

Hi Steve,

Couple of extra pics.  Car is booked in a show here on the Gold Coast on Fathers Day weekend (Sept 1) so I am under the pump. Working through it. Pushing the Trimmer - pushing the Auto Electrician. Arriving this week from Rejen is black floor carpet kit, 2  trimmed sun visors and fittings, couple of key blanks and some additional toggle switches. Hopefully there is nothing else to order. After 5 years we are finally on the downhill slope. Give you final finished product pics early September

Hi Steve,

Some pics of painted car. Check out side door lines  - perfect ! Still need to complete wiring, all trimming and aircon fitment.

I am very happy with paint colour and quality. Even the painter loved the richness of the colour. It is called Holden Prussian Steel (check it on google). Beautiful gunmetal look but with green tinge to it that shows itself in daylight.

Will update again when trimmed. Still looking at 3 more months.

Cheers - ROD

Hi Steve,

Hope you are well.

You may wish to add these updated photos to the Mark 1 site for 115/3227.

Finally after 4 years engine and transmission and exhaust went it. All looks good. Still heaps to do.  Did not use headers as per my previous pics. They did not fit so had the original manifolds ceramic coated and they will be fine.

Putting in hybrid style aircon that will be integrated in behind dash. As you may know the Mark 1 Jensen was never designed to have air.  I have done a lot of surgery behind dash and utilising pan style fan to actually suck air in from a new heater core and evaporator from the interior of the car and then disperse it up through the face and demist vents. Pic shows old heater box and fan and then the new set up in silver.

As you can see the Sanden compressor required extra pulley and idle pulley plus some adjustments but will work a treat.

Now for wiring, painting and trim. Still a few months before completion. As you know there will always be some hiccups along the way - especially with a Jensen.

Will keep you updated.

Cheers - ROD

It has been a  while since we last spoke.  I would like to add some more pics to my album in your Mk 1 register.

Car is still at least a year off finishing but would still like to update.

My Jensen Mk 1 project arrived here today from Sydney.

For your records Chassis Number is 115-3227.  Painted red some years ago. Original colour was Californian Sage.

I wanted a project and this is certainly a big one. Quite a lot of work to do. I am looking at a 2 year project (minimum).

Would still appreciate quickest way for me to get a MK 1 workshop manual. Do I need to go via UK Ebay or is there somthing local here in OZ.

Cheers - Rod
