<p>The Jensen S-type was a car built by Jensen Motors from 1936 until 1941 as both a saloon and a convertible. It was the firm's first volume production car, based on Ford motors from the United States, and chassis parts from Ford of Britain sourced through M B K Motors. The car was built on a steel chassis and used aluminium for the body panels. The car was sold with either a 136 cu in (2.2 L) or a 221 cu in (3.6 L) Ford Ford Sidevalve V8 motor, equipped with two downdraft carburetors, a Vertex ignition, and a Columbia overdrive rear axle. The cars were available in three body styles: a 2-door convertible, 3-door touring model, and a 4-door saloon.
In total, there were about 50 S-type cars built by Jensen in their West Bromwich factory, with an estimated 10 cars still surviving today.</p>
