1973 Jensen Interceptor - Mark 3, J -series For Sale
This lovely Interceptor came out of the factory in a Moss Green exterior with beige interior and it is that same colour and interior that is still looking good on the car today.
Having been looked after by what appears to be many single drivers with very little evidence of the neither passenger nor rear seats being used. The car spent its early life in Devon, Essex, Wiltshire and Dorset before then spending 16 years on the Isle of Man and then finally being tucked away (but well looked after) in West London for another 18 years.
I bought the car in February 2016 and am only selling her as despite investing in her engineering (as shown below) a pending change to our Jensen family will mean that it is better therefore to pass her on for someone else to enjoy. A much liked and admired car at many shows and events.
The car comes with a lot of history / paperwork since returning to the UK from the Isle of Man with most of the required / desired engineering works being done inside the last 2 ½ years by marque specialists.
