The Jensen PW is a saloon car built by Jensen Motors from 1946 through 1952. The PW stood for Post-War, as the car was the first model built by Jensen after the Second World War. A convertible model was also built alongside the hardtop saloon.
The first models utilized the Meadows 3,993 cc (4.0 L; 243.7 cu in) straight-eight engines. However, issues arising from harsh vibrations while driving eventually led to Jensen engineers to switch first to Nash straight-eights and then to better established 3,993 cc (4.0 L; 243.7 cu in) straight-six engines from the Austin Sheerline.
In total, there were less than 20 examples of the PW to leave Jensen's West Bromwich factory.
