Toolbox


The 541 "TOOLBOX"
At the bottom of every toolbox is a jumble of mixed up items that haven't found a home elsewhere - they'll no doubt be very useful one day, but there's nowhere to store them. That's the purpose of this page - a repository for everything that doesn't fit under the other headings.
Happy Browsing!

A SHORT BIOGRAPHY OF THE DESIGNER
Eric was responsible for the shape of the Jensen 541 and also the 1950's Interceptor, the CV8, and the P66 prototype. Following a productive career, he enjoyed a long retirement during which he was happy to support numerous JOC events, before his passing in 1997. Click this link to find out more about Eric:

541 WORKSHOP MANUAL CD
With no offical 541 Workshop Manual, owners have to search through contemporary manuals for cars with similar mechanicals, such as the Princess or Jaguar. Mike Byrnes has put his (considerable) experience of 541's distilled onto one CD - it's like living inside Mike's head for a day... Price is £15.00 plus £3.00 post and packing. Mike is able to personalise each copy with the owner's car on the front sleeve if they wish so a photo or jpg should be included with order.

541 BUILD SHEETS CD
The 541 Build Sheets are still available from Mike Byrne on a CD. Virtually an instruction list on how to build a 541, they simply list almost every part,its dimensions, quantities and origins. It's up to you how to assemble them once you have sourced them! There are also miscellaneous other illustrated parts lists - around 300 pages in all. Mike has set the price at 12.00 plus 2.00 postage to anywhere in the world!

STOLEN 541 - STILL MISSING AFTER 2 YEARS
Keep your eyes open for any leads! If anyone suspects they have seen the 541R car "NOA 45", or parts from it (parts can usually be identified and breaking it multiplies the chance of detection), contact the UK police as it was stolen in Cumbria two years ago. Or contact the dealer "Bobs Affordable Classics" from Knowle, Solihull : - he is still offering an eyewateringly large reward for its safe return. Phone Number: 01564 779746
