My Jensen GT was in early 1986 back at Jensen Cars Ltd. for a rebuild after an accident in Sweden. In the files I have a photo serie taken at the works and sent to the then owner together with invoice #2170 totalling 8039 GBP. In two of those pictures the face of one employee can be seen.
It would be fun to know the name of this person. As can be seen from the pictures he is a younger man, so hopefully he is still with us?
Perhaps someone can identify him?

Blimey. Air chisel in one hand and welder in the other. They didn't mess about in those days! £9K was probably the price of a new XR3i convertible in 1986. I guess that is why the Jensen was fixed up. Not a small amount though.

There's 2 people in that picture John. One behind holding the welding torch.
