Jensen - Jensen CV8
In 1957 Richard Jensen, one of the pair of brothers at Jensen Motors fitted a Chrysler V8 in his own Jensen 541, which probably gave him the idea for a V8 in a future car. The Jensen CV8 was produced in 1962 with the Chrysler V8 5.9 litre, and a year after in late 1963 the CV8 Mk2 had the bigger bore Chrysler 6.3 litre. The final version, the CV8 Mk3, kept the same capacity but had many detail changes. There was also a prototype CV8 with 4 wheel drive . .
Jensen CV8 tyre size for all models was 6.70x15 which equates to 185R15 size Blockley produces the 185VR15 tyres for the CV8.
