Originally registered 307 HTB in October 1957, according to the green UK log book the car was purchased second hand by Richard Camm-Fitz in 1967, Dick Fitz later wrote to confirm that he bought the car fitted with racing tyres as the previous owner had raced the car at Brands Hatch. Mr Fitz moved to work in the Jersey in the early 1970s, and subsequently sold the car on his retirement in 1985. There is a letter in the history file confirming the early history, Mr Fitz had the colour changed to blue from the original Imperial Maroon during his ownership, after a period of years the Jensen was given to Le Riche Restorers to restore in the late 1990s at a cost exceeding £40,000, in 2008 the mileage was 95000 miles, as a consequence the mileage today of 97227 indicates minimal use over the last nine years.

The Jensen is In excellent restored condition, with black leather and grey interior
The 3 litre six cylinder engine is in excellent well maintained condition, as confirmed by the history file comprising earlier correspondence and invoice history which accompanies the car.

Model history
The Jensen 541 is an automobile which was produced by Jensen Motors from 1954 to 1959. It was first exhibited at the London Motor Show in October 1953, and production started in 1954.
The 541 used fibreglass bodywork mounted on a steel chassis and was fitted with a straight-six engine, three SU carburettor version of the 4-litre Austin engine and four speed transmission with optional Laycock de Normanville overdrive.
The body consisted of three major mouldings and the entire front was rear hinged and could be raised for engine access. The doors were aluminium. Suspension was independent at the front using coil springs with a Panhard rod located rigid axle and leaf springs at the rear. A choice of wire spoked or steel disc wheels with centre lock fitting was offered. At first the car had servo assisted 11 in (279 mm) drum brakes but from 1956, the newly introduced 541 Deluxe version featured Dunlop disc brakes both front and rearthe first British four seater thus equipped.
It was also a luxurious car with the well equipped interior featuring leather seats as standard. The individual seats in front separated by a high transmission tunnel and the rear seats had a small centre armrest and could also be tilted forwards to increase luggage space. Standard colours (1955) were black, ivory, imperial crimson, moonbeam grey, Boticelli blue, deep green and Tampico beige.
By employing light weight materials, Jensen managed to make the car significantly lighter than their contemporary Interceptor model, with a dry weight of 1,220 kg (2,690 lb) as against the older design's 1,370 kg (3,020 lb) Performance benefitted.
