Andrew March's 1970 Jensen FF II

Storage hasn't been kind to this FF...

Andrew's FF is currently on display in the Barn Find area at the Practical Classics Classic Car and Restoration Show at the NEC.

The FF was purchased by one of Andrew's relatives back in 1995, shortly after undergoing a comprehensive restoration.

The car remained in the relative's custody for the next 22 years until he passed away. His long term illness meant that he was unable to drive with the result that the car was stored in a workshop and kept getting moved further to the back, which wasn't the kindest place for it.

The car saw the light for the first time in many years last December now being under new family ownership. The extraction took 6 hours using various tools and a forklift!

Andrew plans for the car to be restored to it's former glory once other projects have been completed.

Interior view. At least the clock is right twice a day (like mine!). Lot of time, effort and a big pile of pennies need. It can be done.
