1972 JENSON INTERCEPTOR SERIES 3 – IMMACULATE, 43K MILES.
Jensen Interceptor series 3 - 1972 440 ci . With an incredible 43900 miles from new and a large history file with some interesting history.
This metallic silver Jensen was supplied new on 4th August by Charles Follett main dealers in the midlands . The stainless foot plates on the car carry their name. It was bought by an international textile dealer in Londons Westend. It was sold from him to a company director of his company . Since then it has only had 3 other owners . Present owner, whom we are selling on behalf of has had for approx for 7 years, where upon it has never seen rain and been used for shows and some local touring. It has lived a truly loved life and recently been kept in a heated and dehumidified garage.
All this recent effort to keep the car immaculate is because the current owner searched high and low for the best he could find and this Jensen was subject to a circa 60k restoration by Marque specialists “Appleyards”. This is detailed in the history file . The History file also contains letters from when the vehicle was almost new with a complaint about the throttle cable snapping and then how in those days an apology and a dealer mechanic was sent to put it right.
The 60k documented restoration by Richard Appleyard was completed circa 2004 / 5. The car has had some more major work since including 4k worth of work on ignition system, converting it to electronic and new steering rack etc etc. The car has been kept up to date although used very little with Mots etc . We are more than happy to re instate another new MOT upon sale , for peace of mind.
The current owner is very proud to confirm the car drives without fault . This Jensen has no body issues or paint issues what so ever. With such low mileage and fantastic history and such an in-depth , quality restoration this is a very desirable Classic . The price is very realistic and maybe even a tad low when we have researched the current market . The interior is faultless and everything works. Engine bay is super clean with no visible leaks at all . The desirable 440 is super strong and maintains excellent old pressure and constant temp once warn. There is a new indoor cover that comes with the car.
Trailered transport offered at cost. There is a full HD walk round video available upon request .
