1974 Jensen Interceptor Convertible For Sale by Auction

ESTIMATE €75,000-€85,000 Schloss Dyck 2019 LOT DETAILS Lot Number 112 Chassis Number TBA Year 1974 Make Jensen Model Interceptor Convertible DESCRIPTION 'The Interceptor saloon was not a shape that took readily to being converted to a soft-top, so the whole rear end of the car was restyled with more square-cut lines and a proper boot lid. This restyling was a complete success, giving the new car a very balanced profile, especially with the hood down.' – 'Jensen' by Keith Anderson. Arguably the most glamorous and prestigious of all Interceptor variants, the Convertible represented the West Bromwich manufacturer's highest aspirations at the time of its introduction in 1974. With the Interceptor sports saloon's introduction in 1967, Jensen had switched from glassfibre to steel for its car bodies. Underneath, the preceding C-V8 model's robust chassis, running gear and 6,276cc Chrysler engine remained substantially unchanged. With around 280bhp on tap, performance was more than adequate, The Motor recording a top speed of 140mph with 100mph arriving in 19 seconds. Leather upholstery, reclining front seats and walnut veneer were all standard features, while automatic transmission was the choice of almost all buyers. The Series II incorporated revised front suspension, Girling brakes and a redesigned interior, while the Series III, introduced in 1971, came with a 7.2-litre engine, better seats, central locking and alloy wheels. For 1974 Jensen adopted an improved, 330bhp version of the 7.2-litre Chrysler V8 on the 'J Series' MkIII, which also gained all the equipment, including air conditioning, that had been standard issue on the now-discontinued Interceptor SP. The major development that year though, was the introduction of the Convertible, which debuted at the Geneva Motor Show in March. By this time most other manufacturers had abandoned the convertible ahead of an expected US ban. When the latter failed to materialise, Jensen was left in a strong position, selling 506 Convertibles in the next two years. Today the Interceptor Convertible is one of Jensen's most sought after models. This elegant convertible is presented in Regency red with tan leather interior and is described to be in a very good condition with just 33,000 miles showing on the odometer. A wonderful example of this British classic with American 'muscle-car' power. View 1974 Jensen Interceptor Convertible For Sale on Coys.co.uk for further details.
