It's the engine the Poms used to power a few kites in the Great War.

Or a throwback to a round table (not to be confused with a round2it).

Or a car owned by a certain Mr Meyers.

Is this the car that you Britarms has been trying to get 86K for or is there another Merlin.
Hate to be negative but Duncan maybe right about price. Really should be that price though if life was fair. No one would think twice about an etype at that price. Get Merlin up from his cave to wave a wand over it. kenny38 :lol:

No Kenny..Doug Meyers of K & D Who in case your new to the Jensen world is or was by far the guru of Jensen restorations..He had Two MK 1..One was his personal car for over 30 years and thats the one I own and yes Im willing to sell it for 65000 UK pounds . The second he built for Kerry his wife..Thats called Merlin..And before you start to play it down..Ask people in the know about Merlin..It would put any Interceptor S or Interceptor R to shame...

With Merlin besides what you can see it's what you can't see that really sets it apart from the others. It is also a LHD MKI. :)
