Jensen Interceptor R – an iconic car reworked for the modern era


The car is a 1970s icon, but wasn't exactly blessed with reliability during the original era. All that is changing with the Jensen Interceptor R.

Let's get one thing straight, this is a classic car, not a brand new model. One look at the cars above should tell you that. But it's has been adapted for the modern era.

eBay watch: 1970s Jensen Interceptor MKII


It's an icon of an era and was once the car to be see in for the man (or woman) about town. 40 years on and this Jensen Interceptor MKII is still a car that turns heads.

Dating back to 1971, with just under 90,000 on the clock and a whopping 6,276cc engine, this particular Interceptor has apparently had £5,000 spent on it over the last nine months and has a good paint job, with just a couple of blemishes. Aside from that, most of what you see is original and tested, including the electric aerial, cigar lighter, boot interior light, under bonnet lights and door open lights. The air-con should be fine with a bit of work too.

On top of all that, this tax-exempt drive has had a full service, change of oil and new filters. Check out the photos for a close-up inspection and if you like, the opening bid is £3,000.
