1969 JENSEN INTERCEPTOR MK I – SOLD
Cast your mind back to the late 60s the news a grim mixture of industrial strife and discord in the Middle East. No wonder we longed for an escape; and the cinema provided it. It was a world where supercars were celebrated and a Technicolor drive to the French Riviera in a massively powerful GT was the done thing.
So the stunning Interceptor stared in many films with its beautiful Touring of Milan styling and unique back window design.
The Interceptor was launched in 1966 as an up-to-date replacement for the fast-but-raw C-V8. Its all-steel body was as rigid as a monocoque and was a radical step for Jensen.
This beauty looks resplendent finished in its original Moorland Peat with champagne hide and is one around 700 UK supplied examples built.
Restored to a very high standard around 2004 she is matching numbers and very importantly the original colour unlike many on the market.
She has enjoyed constant maintenance during the years all documented in the comprehensive history file and most Jensen specialists have been involved In the servicing including Cropredy Jensen.
Sensible upgrades including: unleaded conversion, electronic ignition, high torque starter, adjustable shockers, upgrade alternator ,high capacity cooling fans, stainless steel exhaust, I phone compatible radio etc.
The condition today is a testament to their high quality of workmanship and she looks and drives extremely well.
On the road she is more GT than sports car but great fun in the country and effortless in the city. You’ll be amazed at how little it rolls in bends and how simple it is to accurately position – and, with a good-sized boot and rear seats, it’s a car you can enjoy every day. Fuel consumption aside.
For the money, there’s little to touch an Interceptor and they have been undervalued for years and the classic car pundits are predicting a great investment opportunity.
Supplied fully inspected, serviced and with a 12 month comprehensive warranty.
