1970 Jensen Ferguson Formula II project


  • Stripped and ready for complete restoration
  • Extremely rare vehicle, 1 of 107

The Appeal

This is a very very rare opportunity to purchase one of just 107 Jenson Ferguson Formula IIs ever produced.

For its time it was a very advanced car, sporting a lot of features that were ahead of its time, being the first ever production car to have all-wheel drive and anti-lock brakes. A rare chance to own a vehicle that has been fully stripped and prepared for a comprehensive restoration, sure to be a valuable and rare vehicle when complete.

The History and Paperwork

  • V5 Present
  • Massive history file

The car was kept by the previous keeper for around 20 years, after which the current keeper purchased the car in 2022 as a restoration project but was not able to continue with the restoration. The original blue V5 is present, along with a huge 60-page history file from Martin Robey including a heritage certificate.

The Mechanics

  • Engine in very nice condition

Mechanically the vehicle appears to be in good condition, it would appear that the engine and transmission have already had some restoration work carried out. A lot of boxes of parts and a very nice foundation to work with.

Very few people have seen an FF in person, with the Interceptor being far more common. This car was a real masterpiece of its time and now a very collectable and valuable machine. With this lovely car being totally prepared for restoration, with a lot of the time involved stripping and preparing already having been carried out, this most certainly is an opportunity not to be missed.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.
Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.


C&C prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.
Auctions are extended by 3-minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £10,000 £100.00
£10,000 to £50,000 £250.00
£50,000 to £100,000 £500.00
£100,000+ £1000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.
You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you’re able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
