Well, you cannot say that most Jensen cars are beautiful either. Some are nice and that´s about it, but we all love JENSEN.

Thank you, I post some photos very soon I have a donor tempo being collected on Sunday from Belgium.


Hi Owen, some images of the German Tempo that you may find of interest. These were even exported to the US...

We were all lead to believe that Jensen invented the special hydraulic lift truck, but no...a German company did!

Fantastic pictures, I am looking forward to starting the project. Are there really no other Jensen survivors or other remains?

Jensen certainly pioneered round tube as chassis

But did they have any say over the Tempo chassis design?
Interesting to see that they appear to be badged as JeNSeN instead of Jensen or JNSN.

With a German tempo arriving tomorrow that is going to donate some vital parts for the Jensen restoration, I will be able to see first hand what is different from a Jensen tempo, to a continental tempo. Owning a series 1 Landrover also there is a link to tempos there also as Landrover supplied several units to be sold as tempos in germany.
