1973 Jensen Interceptor Coupe
Chequered Flag International is pleased to offer this 1973 Jensen
Interceptor III Coupe in Brasilia with Tan leather. 44,541 original miles.
Still titled to its original California owner who sold it to a collector in
Albuquerque New Mexico where it languished unused in a collection for 30
years. Brought out this year and resuscitated with all new fluids, rebuilt
window motors and alternator, transmission service and wheel alignment,
etc. Perfectly straight and rust free body with very nice paint. Absolutely
superb original chrome, all rubbers are good. The wheels are all uncurbed
and in their original finish (which is very unusual). Superb original
interior - the seats look absolutely as they should, original with little
wear and no re-dye. Dash is great with no cracks. roof liner is original
but looks new. Excellent door panels and carpets. The small piece of wood
around gearshift has some light lacquer cracks which is unavoidable on
these and an easy repair. Runs and drives very nicely, the condition
clearly reflects the mileage. Interceptors are rare, Interceptors in this
condition are usually only to be found in convertible form as they retained
a fairly high resale that the coupes did not enjoy until fairly recently.
To say this is one in a hundred would be on the low side accept that there
aren't 100 to choose from! Inspections encouraged. All sales AS-IS. Sales
tax and lic fees due if delivered in California.

The Jensen Interceptor is a sporting GT-class car that was hand-built at
the Kelvin Way Factory, West Bromwich near Birmingham in the United Kingdom
by Jensen Motors between 1966 and 1976. The Interceptor name had been used
previously by Jensen for the Jensen Interceptor made between 1950 and 1957
at the Carters Green factory. Jensen had extensively used glass-reinforced
plastic for the fabrication of body panels in the preceding two decades,
but the new Interceptor saw a return to a steel body-shell instead of
glass-reinforced plastic and by having the body designed by an outside
firm, Carrozzeria Touring of Italy, rather than the in-house staff. The
early bodies were Italian-built, by Vignale, before production by Jensen
themselves began -- with subtle body modifications -- in West Bromwich
1974 Jensen Interceptor MKIII
The Jensen Interceptor must be the most recognised unfamous classic car of
our time. Everyone has heard of a Jensen Interceptor it seems, despite very
few screen appearances and a limited production run that was
unceremoniously cut short during the fuel crisis of the seventies. Designed
in Italy, powered by 6.3 or 7.2 litre American Chrysler V8 engines and
built by Jensen cars in West Bromwich the unlikely result is an
intoxicating mix of power, size and sophistication normally unheard of this
side of an Aston Martin. We take one of Great Escape Classic Car Hire's two
examples out and give it the full beans to unleash the beast within.

Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud documentary - The Car's The Star [BBC 1995]
18 years ago, on television, The Car's The Star.
After the Silver Dawn followed the Silver Cloud in its standard version or
a rare, long wheelbase. The carrossier H. J. Mulliner was just bought by
Rolls-Royce and this specialist builded convertibles on the chassis. For
the special bodies were James Young, Freestone & Webb and Hooper good
addresses.The Silver Cloud was a popular status symbol among movie and pop
