A little bit of history on 113/2336
This vehicle was Delivered January 11. 1966 (built in 1965) to mr HG Plumbly Esq. managing director of Ballidon Quarries in Derbyshire. Registration FAJ 880D. Mr Plumbly was most likely not prepared for the brute force powerhouse he had ordered, and complained of its heavy clutch, and inability to shift properly as a result (once having broken the shifter clean off!) there is a tale of woe during his ownership, and ultimately was viewed as an embarrassment for Jensen themselves. And although it was repaired, it was taken back into Jensen.
Around 1969 The car was resold, this time to an American businessman, Mr. Lawrence W Feldman, chairman of the board for Western merchandising mart in San Francisco California, a major property owner in the San Francisco Bay Area. I’ve been told At that time Mr Feldman owned, or operated a ski resort in Switzerland and used the car in Switzerland for several years before shipping it to the USA as a Christmas present for himself December 1971
