Jensen Motors introduced the Interceptor in 1966 as a four seater two door GT that replaced the C-V8 which featured a fiberglass body with a Chrysler V8 drivetrain. The new model was designed by Carrozzeria Touring and utilized traditional steel body construction. Power was derived from again from a Chrysler V8, this time the 383ci V8 engine. The Interceptor was instantly praised for its unique styling that featured a rear glass hatchback and its proven V8 performance struck a chord with those in the luxury GT car market, especially when considering it cost over 50% more than a Jaguar E-Type. The Interceptor would go through several slight alterations during its production with the Series III model debuting in 1971. The Series III Interceptor featured a slightly restyled front end with additional standard features and the 440ci V8 became the Interceptors engine of choice. 1974 Jensen unveiled the Interceptor Convertible that featured a power folding top and made the model more appealing to those accustomed to open air motoring. By 1975 the worldwide economic recession had started to have a downfall on the smaller manufactures. Jensen’s unwillingness to compromise quality resulted with the company entering receivership and automobile production ceased in 1976. The combination of American performance, Italian design and Legendary English coachwork was not necessarily a new idea by 1966, however few would accomplish the legacy the Jensen Interceptor did with its short 10 years of production. Today the Interceptor is regarded as one of the best GT cars of all time with examples highly sought after by collectors and enthusiasts.
The 1975 Jensen Interceptor III Convertible featured here is finished in gorgeous Corise Red with an impeccably kept tan leather interior and matching convertible top. This magnificent motorcar is believed to have been driven just 24,134 miles from new and is among one of the nicest examples we’ve seen in years. It comes fitted with nearly every available option including factory air conditioning, full leather interior, power windows, power steering and much more.
