We are delighted to announce we shall be displaying one of our latest restorations, Chassis Number 6 Jensen FF, at the Concours of Elegance at Hampton Court.
This prestigious event, now in its sixth year, gathers a selection of the world’s finest cars in the Royal grounds of Hampton Court Palace from Friday 31st August to Sunday 2nd September.
Our car shall be displayed on the Bridge of Weir stand, the renowned Scottish leather firm who have supplied some of the world’s greatest cars since 1905, in a curated display of ‘British Legends’.
This car is one of the earliest Jensen FF cars, hand built by renowned coachbuilders Vignale in Italy. The panels were all hand beaten and shaped as opposed to later models that were built using pressed panels back in the UK.
It is extremely rare being Chassis Number 6 FF of approximately 20 cars bodied by Vignale in 1967. What’s more, it is one of just 11 FFs that were also painted in Italy.
Cropredy Bridge Cars have taken this car back to bare metal using its programme of works designed for the Interceptor CB, the firm’s soon to be announced flagship restoration. This programme restores to a standard far above factory, with all metal work and paintwork prepared to concours standard with modern tolerances and every single component restored or replaced while retaining the original fully rebuilt and gently upgraded engine.
While all other CB builds will also renew all carpets and leather throughout to the highest standard, we have retained the original leather in this rare FF to preserve the unrepeatable provenance and originality of this exceptionally rare car.
A significant car restored to perfection while preserving the original character, complete with discreet reversible upgrades where necessary, this FF encapsulates the industry leading work of Cropredy Bridge Cars.
