1974 JENSEN INTERCEPTOR III CONVERTIBLE
(Stock #3982.) Jensen Motors was an English specialty car maker started in 1934 by the two Jensen brothers. The company built limited-production, high quality cars until 1976 with the Interceptor perhaps being the best-known. A high quality Grand Touring car, the first Interceptor was offered in 1966, powered by a potent Chrysler 383 cubic inch V-8 engine and offering luxury car seating for four. As years passed, many technological improvements were made and, in 1971, the car was upgraded with Chrysler’s impressive 440 cubic inch V-8 engine. In 1974, the fabulous Interceptor III convertible was introduced. With just 267 of these gorgeous models being hand-built over the next three years, the car is as rare as it is beautiful. Our car was found by an enthusiastic multi-Jensen-owner, Maryland customer of ours, in Monterey, California. He purchased the car 14 years ago from a fellow Jensen Club owner who had purchased the car from its original owner in San Rafael, California in 1978. Finished in original Cream with its original dark red leather, the condition of the car reflects its California heritage. Amenities include the aforementioned 440 engine, automatic transmission with console shift, power rack-and-pinion steering, power 4-wheel disc brakes, factory air conditioning, tinted glass, electric convertible top and windows, factory alloy wheels with Pirelli radial tires, the “Lear Jet” AM-FM/8-track stereo which came with all Interceptors and quality touches throughout. The original owner’s manual is present along with the other original manuals and a thick binder of records and notes. This car has been maintained in fabulous condition for 45 years. 66,007 miles. Sold.
