Big box arrives at The Temple of Steam

 

Peeking out from a well packed box:

Yes Dorothy, it's a Jensen 50 from the early to mid sixties partially disassembled for safe travel.  The prior owner obviously cared a lot to pack this so well. 

On the bench for a decent photo op with it's parts and pieces back in place:

 

"When I grow up, I wanna be like him"...The "new" Jensen 50 side by side with it's predecessor....51R001...both this example and the one used in my 50 > 51 replica conversion are close in age...mine was made about 1967, this one probably a couple of years earlier based on slightly different heater configuration.
