Jensen was one of the first British constructors to recognize the advantages of pairing good-handling chassis and attractive coachwork with strong, powerful, lightly-stressed American engines. Railton employed Hudson power, Allard built a postwar legend with Ford, Chrysler and Cadillac.
But no one did it longer or better than Jensen, who attracted the attention of no less than Edsel Ford in the prewar years with a beautiful Ford flathead V-8 powered touring car.
Jensen outlasted both Railton and Allard, building high performance coupes and convertibles well into the Seventies, cars of unparalleled luxury, exclusivity and performance.
Chrysler Wedge V-8 powered, this 1975 Jensen Interceptor convertible is a California car that is one of the finest of its kind. It has never needed restoration, being consistently, sympathetically maintained and benefiting from cosmetic and mechanical attention as needed throughout its life.
It has probably had one repaint early in its life but the original upholstery and wood veneer trim is clean, solid and honest. The engine compartment is orderly and honest, as it was built and showing the care and attention it has received.
This is one of the finest Jensen Interceptor convertibles around, lavishly equipped with power steering, brakes, windows and top, a later stereo sound system, alloy wheels and Pirelli blackwall radial tires that set off its white exterior, black leather upholstery and black leatherette top. It will be a long time before a better, more honest Jensen Interceptor convertible shows up.
