The Jensen Interceptor was launched in 1966 with stunning styling by Touring of Italy, a hand-built body by Vignale in Italy, American (Chrysler) V8 power with a super-smooth automatic gearbox, and hand-built by English craftsmen at the Kelvin Way Factory in West Bromwich, near Birmingham.

Although Jensen soon took over construction from Vignale, all Interceptors remained individual and these built-to-order cars were produced in probably more different paint colours than any other model. They also had a wide range of trim options and innumerable specification variations which is why many of them had individualistic celebrity owners. The Interceptor II had a naturally aspirated 6. 3 Litre 16v V8 producing 325 BHP and gave the car a 0-60 mph time of 6. 7 seconds and a maximum speed of 140 mph.

This beautiful Jensen Interceptor II - Chassis No: 123/ 3933 and Engine Number: 3342/ 123E is a 'Matching Numbers' car and was hand-built at Jensen's Kelvin Way Factory in West Bromwich, near Birmingham in England between 9th-29th September 1970 and despatched on 20th October 1970 to Jensen dealer Guy Salmon Ltd of Teddington and delivered to its first owners - Fruit Wholesalers - Simons & Co Ltd, 4 London Fruit Exchange, Spitalfields, London E1 and registered on 19th November 1970 with the number plate XKJ 835J.

When the car was built, it was according to the Jensen production record and the Jensen Statement of Origine Certificate, finished in Cerise with a Tan interior and the options listed included SD/ VX/ AC/ TC.

We have just imported this car from Cape Town in South Africa where it has been for the last 40 years or so, but we do not know exactly when it was exported.
It has only had 3 owners in South Africa during all this time and the last owner, a Mr N F Veldman of Port Elizabeth bought the car in April 2001 and commenced a restoration on the car which involved changing the colour from Cerise to White and re-upholstering the interior in black leather. it has covered a believed genuine 85, 414 miles from new, although this cannot be authenticated without a full history file unfortunately.

This car is in lovely condition throughout and has beautiful paint and bodywork and it is mechanically excellent and it drives beautifully.

It has just been registered on its original 1970 number plate XKJ 835J with the DVLA and is now ready to go!
