The unfortunate life of 2625
I am told that this the story of 2625 ... but perhaps some of our readers know more.

115/2625 was a very nice looking Mk1 Interceptor which unfortunately, harboured some unwanted rust and required some body restoration to bring back to top order. Let’s face it, QLD weather is not renowned as being terribly sympathetic towards our beloved classic cars.

Fortunately, the owner of this car was keen to rebuild this splendid car with the help of his son. So with this in mind, 2625 was pulled off the road in the mid 1990’s.

Unfortunately, it was left with a panel shop who left it sitting outside when it was a stripped shell (who would do this?).

Unfortunately, the body continued to rust prolifically. Unfortunately, dad died.

Unfortunately, the son had no knowledge of Jensens or what to do about the rusty shell he was left with.

Unfortunately, 2625 was eventually taken away and left unwanted in the weather where it continued to devalue even further.

Unfortunately, it was left in its’ current state for many years.
Fortunately, it was found eventually by an avid Jensen enthusiast who hurriedly bought the car. Unfortunately, it was ‘too far gone’ to be rebuilt.
Fortunately, it will supply a small number of parts to keep other Jensens on the road.
This is the sad story of 2625.
