The story behind this collectible... "The only car that makes your mustache grow faster." - Jeremy Clarkson The Jensen Interceptor, a hand-built GT car from the Kelvin Way factory near Birmingham, a name with history, with previous incarnations dating back to the 1950s, is best known for its extraordinary coolness. What sets this car, the MKIII, apart is the evolution of materials. Jensen had long relied on fiberglass-reinforced plastic, resulting in cars that were nearly impossible to restore. However, the Interceptor marked a return to a steel body, designed by Italy's Carrozzeria Touring. About the same as a shot of limoncello next to the Beef Wellington! The Mark III, introduced in 1971, brought subtle modifications to the front end, headlights and bumpers. This version came standard with GKN alloy wheels and air conditioning, as well as revised seating. The production year determined whether you got a G-, H-, or J-series. In 1971, the 7.2-liter 440 ci engine replaced the 6.3-liter 383 ci engine. This is the 7.2-liter variant, and you can actually think of it as a British gentleman suddenly transformed into an American dandy. A tweed jacket and a huge mustache and a penchant for burgers. Our "Gentleman's Express" has recently received a careful dose of TLC, with rebuilt brakes and front suspension, and a new radiator. The car has been treated with great care to maintain the luster of rust-free perfection. Originally delivered in Paris, with the accompanying particularly cool yellow headlights, this example is in very clean condition. She comes from a collection and is ready for the next owner.
