A rare, and perhaps unique, Interceptor 111 having started life in 1973, as a fixed head, was extensively rebuilt in the early nineties including conversion to a drop-head. This work was clearly carried out by an expert professional coach-builder using genuine Jensen panels. Although fitted with a manual hood, as opposed to the factory power version, the car benefits from much more gracefull lines, when the hood is down, than the “camel” shape of the factory ones. Earlier documents suggest that during its 90′s restoration the rugged 7.2ltr Chrysler V8 engine, gearbox and suspension were all rebuilt, the car’s current performance bears this out.
In 1994 when we believe the restoration to have been completed the mileage reading was 15436 currently the reading is 17800 we have MOT certificates going back to 1990 which bear out the mileage.
We have put this Jensen through our own restoration works correcting all the small issues that accrue over 16 years including a complete respray, re-chrome where necessary, and a total refurbishment of the interior, producing a car that looks truly stunning.
