Production of the Jensen 31⁄2-Litre, usually known as the 'S-Type', started late in 1936.

uring 1938, 'CAC 41' was used in a number of rallies and road tests, and for publicity work. Between 26th and 30th April 1938, it took part in the 1000-mile RAC Rally, driven by rally and trials driver H K (Ken) Crawford, starting from Leamington Spa and finishing in Blackpool. The route included climbing Bwlch-y-Groes, the highest public road mountain pass in Wales, with the cars eventually arriving in the late afternoon of 28th April 1938 on Blackpool promenade. Driving tests took place on the 29th April 1938 on Middle Walk, Blackpool, with a coachwork competition the following day. 'CAC 41' is also believed to have been the white Jensen Tourer that took part in the Scottish and Welsh rallies in June and July 1938, driven by Alan Hess.
