N. Jacobsens Karosserifabrikk was a coachbuilder located at Frogner in the western part of Oslo, Norway. It was established by the danish-born Niels Jacobsen after he bought out A/S Autos (located at the same place) coachbuilder practice. Jacobsens focused on building bodies for commercial vans, taxis, hearses and ambulances.

This is a 1934 Ford that was fitted with one of their bodies to be used by the Norwegian state broadcaster NRK. It was the first car that was custom built for NRK.

Jacobsens built this seven seater taxicab body on a Ford Pilot V8 chassis in 1948. A cabowner in Lørenskog (outside of Oslo) bought the car new for 18.000 Norwegian Kroner.
