C-V8 or 541 Wanted

by Cheetah » Mon May 15, 2017 6:06 am

I'm looking to purchase a Jensen C-V8, a 541, 541S or 541R. Anything ranging from a restoration project to a restored car located anywhere in Australia is of interest to me.



Thanks,

Rohan

I have seen that black CV-8 a couple of times over here. A super nice car - congratulations, well bought.

Thanks Chris.

The chassis and interior are great and the body is in pretty good nick.

I have decided to completely rebuild the suspension, brakes and differential and source wheels that better suit the car. The first step is getting my head around how these cars are screwed together. Armstrong lever arm shock absorbers and Jaguar differentials with half shafts aren't something that I'm at all familiar with.
