Model: Interceptor Mark III
Body Style: Convertible
SOLD: 1975 Jensen Interceptor Mark III Convertible
This is a properly-restored, very rare Jensen convertible that has been completely sorted and had all the questionable bits replaced. It is not an 100-point car, and was not restored to be. But it is a very, very nice high-point car that would look good in anyone’s garage or in front of a stately home – and it drives like a dream.
Full body-on professional restoration, including:
- new chrome bumpers and rocker panels
- new red finish, hand-rubbed
- dead-straight body panels
- new factory-made hood from Britain
- new hood struts
- interior leather restored
- new burled walnut veneer
- some new carpet as needed
- new front wiring loom
- new wiring as needed throughout, including power top and rear lights
- new top relays and pump
- new power window motors
- new/refurbished dash rocker switches
- new trunk liners/carpet
- restored original fire extinguisher and jack
- very good top
- new weatherstripping
- undercarriage stripped of old undercoat and re-coated
- wheels hand-stripped, polished and re-painted with high-impact paint
- engine and transmission overhauled as needed, new seals, gaskets, hoses, connectors, battery, fans, fan transformers, alternator, etc.
- underhood detailed
- re-chromed Jensen valve covers
- new brakes
- newer exhaust and brake lines
- owner’s manual, shop manuals, advertising materials, etc.
- spare black convertible top in the box
Here are the car’s deficiencies:
- the tonneau cover has shrunk too much to be used. I have a person ready to make and properly fit a new one for $750 but haven’t got around to it yet.
- the AC needs to be recharged. I haven’t been driving the car and so haven’t dealt with this yet, either.
- there is one small blemish on the newly-rechromed rear bumper, hardly noticeable but there. The chrome shop has gone out of business so I can’t pursue them, but most people wouldn’t likely see it anyway.
- Like most Jensens, the door open retainers don’t work well.
