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.

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

Jensen Interceptor S
A unique Jensen Interceptor: originally one of only 232 SP (Six Pack) cars
built by Jensen in 1973, it then became - under the 'S' moniker - the first
prototype built Cropredy Bridge Garage, the historic workshop and Jensen
centre of restoration and know-how excellence.
As the first model to undergo the complex procedure, it hailed a new era
for Interceptors and sparked the first wave of enthusiastic interest when
it was unleashed in 2006.
This Interceptor S started life as an original model (MkIII) and went
through a total restoration process to bring the car back to its former
glory, and infinitely more beyond it. Its current incarnation, the very
desirable Interceptor R, is now marketed at ¬£139k+ and restoration
projects of original Interceptors can run well into six-figure investments.
Widely featured by the UK press at the time of the 'S' series launch in
2006, this Interceptor S boasts the new General Motors-sourced (Corvette)
V8 engine and management controls, fully satisfying all the latest emission
It features a GM fully electronic four-speed automatic gearbox connected to
an uprated Salisbury hypoid unit. A sympathetically modified and greatly
improved brake and suspension set-up ensures safe yet entertaining handling
in all circumstances. Having achieved well documented and sustained
coverage by classic car magazines, this specific car earned a glowing
reputation and an enthusiastic reception from many a respected UK
This Interceptor S, finished in stunning midnight blue metallic paint,
respectfully close to the original hue, has only covered 3,200 miles since
its total rebuild.
A traditional soft tan leather interior complements the exterior colour
making the car look perfectly at home within the English heritage scene.
The 'S' series Interceptors are now more in demand than ever: thanks to the
upgraded package and the quality and reliability standards of work carried
out by Cropredy Bridge, this model is a true future investment as well as
one which fulfils 'everyday' motoring needs for the classic car enthusiast.
Austin Allegro: The Car's The Star Part Two
Part two of Quentin Willson's look at the Allegro. Apologies for the poor
quality 3/4 of the way through but this is due to a damaged tape. The
silence mid way through is due to an ABBA song on the soundtrack that upset
the copyright owner and it was blocked so I had to edit it out and upload
it again. Quentin only talks about colours and trim in this section.
