The car was taken to Cropredy Bridge, Jensen specialist for re-commissioning and MOT.

The whole car was thoroughly inspected and extensive work carried out, replacing the carburetor, distributor, fitting electronic ignition, plugs, leads, cooling system, fuel lines and pump. The gearbox was completely rebuilt and the car re-wired.

Today the car looks and feels totally original, with the very period interior in great condition.
