MOORLAND PEAT WITH CHAMPAGNE LEATHER
The Jensen Interceptor first went in to production in 1966 and continued to be made right through until 1976 during which time, four iterations of the car were produced. The series 1 was the rarest version with just 923 units produced and is therefore the most desirable today. It is believed that less 50 cars have survived up until today. The Interceptor was styled by the infamous Italian styling house, Carrozzeria Touring and was built by Vignale. The car was finally assembled in the midlands where the all steel body was mated to a 6.3 litre Chrysler V8 and automatic transmission.
The car on offer here today is one of the desirable Series 1 cars. To further enhance the desirability of the car, it still retains its original engine and gearbox. During the last decade, the car has been the subject of a complete restoration and is still in fantastic condition. Alongside the restoration, in recent years the car has been given an extensive list of upgrades to further enhance the cars usability and appeal. The list of the modifications include the fitment of uprated adjustable dampers, an uprated alternator, electronic ignition, high torque started motor, twin cooling fans, and a stainless steel exhaust. On top of this, the head and engine have been modified to run on unleaded fuel.
The car was originally supplied in today’s colour scheme of moorland peat with champagne leather interior. The car also comes complete with an extensive history including bills and receipts from throughout the car’s life as well as detailed photographs of the restoration.
The car is presented in fantastic condition and presents a great opportunity to acquire one of the most iconic British cars ever made. Inspection of the car is highly recommended, and it is available for immediate viewing at our London showroom.
