We all think Interceptor when the brand Jensen crops up but they had an illustrious history being involved in the manufacture of Volvo P1800, building a super small roadster and Coupe called the Jensen Healey etc.

The CV8 sits between the 541 with its six-cylinder engine and the first of the Interceptors with only 250 being built in the 4 years between 1962 and 1966.

Fitted with the 6.3 litres Chrysler V8 it was one of the fastest four-seater GT cars of the period and attracted many celebrity owners such as Sean Connery, Anita Harris, Mick Fleetwood etc.

This lovely four-owner example was comprehensively restored in 2006 by Cropredy Bridge Garage at a cost of over £140000  and the remit was to build the best CV8 possible and enhance her during the process as required.

The restoration is fully documented including magazine articles also in the comprehensive history file.

The result is a stunning useable 1960s Icon that is now so rare especially compared to the competition and so much easier to live with and drive especially as it has power steering fitted, upgraded brakes, suspension and a four-speed auto gearbox making long trips much easier.

Being fibreglass they last well and are built robustly but with a typical English hand-built feel about them.

With only a few remaining the CV8 is a surefire investment opportunity.
