OJF 789F was supplied new to Charles Follet Limited, Berkeley Street, London, finished in White with Black trim and power assisted steering on the 25th June 1968. A copy of the original invoice, Jensen Motors Ltd guarantee claim form and early maintenance records with Jensen Motors are with the car. We are pleased to report this lovely early Interceptor is still in its original colours and specification, and is ac correct, unmolested and remarkably original car with a mileage of 96, 750.

History and paperwork with the car confirm the mileage was recorded at 82, 019 in 1986 and a further 14, 000 miles were covered over the next ten years. In 1996 OJF 789F was placed in a central heated garage where it spent 18 years off the road. Having been dry stored for so many years, the car was treated to a brake overhaul and some light re-commissioning and MOT tested in November 2014 at 96, 304 miles. 200 miles were covered over the next year, the Jensen MOT tested again in early 2016 with 96593 miles. Since then, the MKI Interceptor has been owned by a Harrogate based collector who has dry stored the car.

OJF 789F is a very smart, well presented car with attractive, high quality paintwork having been treated to a recent strip down and complete re-spray in its original colour. With all brightwork and windscreens removed, the MKI Jensen treated to extensive paintwork preparation prior to a top class finish. The chrome work is generally very good and largely original throughout, and the Jensen retains a beautifully aged original trim with superb Black leather seats, good quality door cards and walnut dash.

The V8 engine is strong and in very good order holding good oil pressure and offering impressive performance. The gearbox offers lovely smooth changes, and the Jensen has recently had a re-conditioned radiator fitted. OJF 789F is a beautiful looking, impressive car, and finding honest, largely original early examples can prove very difficult. This is a car that should be enjoyed on the open road, it would be fabulous for long distance touring so we hope its next owner begins to cover some serious miles after just 400 miles in the past 25 years.

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 ...
