Another prize rolled up our driveway early Sunday morning.


I had the fellow place the boxes on the trailer where I would disinfect and inspect before bringing them inside.


The larger box is postmarked 1970 and the box date is 1969.


The smaller engine box is dated 1968. The workshop box has no date although I was told all 3 pieces were bought in 1970 which makes sense because the engines both have the skinny red hour glass handles.


These engines are without a doubt the best preserved 50 year old Jensens I've ever seen. It was like opening a Jensen Time Capsule. They did not need polishing but rather a simple wipe down with a soft cloth wet with a little dish soap and water. The mild haze practically fell off the superbly nickeled surfaces.


Here are a few pictures and a video.


Enjoy,


Gil
