1974 JENSEN INTERCEPTOR CONVERTIBLE LS2 UPGRADE – 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.
Sadly, the Interceptor – and Jensen in its initial incarnation after producing only 6,000 units – petered out in 1976. However, just like Mike Tyson, it wasn’t averse to the odd comeback: first during the 1980s and ’90s, and again in 2007. That’s a reflection of the popularity of the Interceptor, and proof that we’re all suckers for a healthy dose of escapism.
This beauty looks resplendent finished in Metallic Blue with cream hide and is one of only 87 rhd UK supplied examples built.
She has enjoyed constant maintenance during the years all documented in the history file and then major restorative and upgrades carried out by Cropredy Bridge including:
Full interior retrim
17 inch alloys
Upgraded Fosseway brakes
LS2 Corvette 6 litre engine with 5 speed gearbox
The condition today is a testament to their high quality of workmanship and she looks and drives extremely well and the engine and gearbox are a huge improvement over the 1970s Chrysler unit with a 3 speed gearbox.
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.
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.
