1973 Jensen Interceptor III - Restored - DEPOSIT TAKEN For Sale

The Jensen Interceptor III was the final version of the Interceptor model, which was introduced in 1966. It was based on the chassis of the Jensen FF, a high-performance, four-wheel drive sports car that was also produced by Jensen Motors. The Interceptor was designed as a grand tourer, a type of car that is designed for long-distance travel and comfortable, high-speed cruising. It was powered by a 7. 2-liter Chrysler V8 engine, which produced around 325 horsepower and could propel the car to a top speed of around 140 mph. The Interceptor was also equipped with a three-speed automatic transmission, power-assisted disc brakes, and independent suspension.

The Interceptor was known for its distinctive, angular design, which was created by Carrozzeria Touring of Milan, Italy. It featured a long hood and a short rear deck, with a spacious, comfortable interior that was trimmed with leather seats and wood veneer. The car was also equipped with a number of luxury features, such as air conditioning, power windows, and a stereo system.

Despite its impressive performance and luxurious features, the Jensen Interceptor III was not a particularly successful car. It was quite expensive and only around 6, 000 units were produced, making it a relatively rare car. Additionally, the company faced financial difficulties in the 1970s and was forced to declare bankruptcy in 1976, bringing an end to production of the Interceptor and all other Jensen models.

Known history shows maintenance by Jensen specialists Cropredy Bridge in Oxfordshire who have also sold it to the last couple of keepers including the current owner who unfortunately passed away and as such we have been asked to find a home for this car along with the rest of his collection of exquisite classic cars.

Invoice shows the current owner purchased the car in August 2015 for £45, 000 and has since had a huge amount of work done to bring the car up to its current near concours condition.

All invoices and correspondences are on file to verify the works and give you peace of mind that this car has been cared for and improved regardless of cost.

Invoices on file show the interior was restored and re-upholstered in September 2011 by Rejen Classics.

Most of the exterior and engine rebuild works have been carried out since 2015 when the current owner purchased the car and had work done as part of the purchase by Cropredy Bridge. Documentation shows that the current owner has spent in excess of £25, 000 since acquiring the car to bring it up to its current standard.

The car is booked for a service with Jensen Servicing on the 9th of October.

Please let us know if there are any further questions, we have many more photos of the car including of the underside that we would be more than happy to send to you.
