Jensen bodies on SS100

Hello folks, I'm doing some research into Jensen Motors coach-building before the war and I'm told Jensen built two drophead coupe bodies on the SS100 chassis. I read in Andrew Whyte's general Jaguar history book that two SS100 chassis were bodied as dropheads by New Avon of Warwick but he says nothing of any Jensen bodies. I'm told one is in the UK (see pic) and the other is in the US. Does anyone have any knowledge of a Jensen bodying connection with the SS100?
