Many of you might recognise this car as it is relatively well known in the Jensen world. It is a Mk1 Interceptor #115/2868. In the 1980’s it sat on the lawn of a car dealer in the ACT, before being sold to NSW where it was dismantled for restoration.

The owner at the time, gave up and sold the car in Sydney as a rusty and dismantled bodyshell.

The new owner spent much time and money on the car before selling to a new enthusiastic owner in QLD. Cherished and improved by the new owner, 2868 life a pampered lifestyle for a number of years before the owner relocated overseas and had to sell it.

2868 was then then purchased by an equally enthusiastic owner in Tasmania who had a brief but busy love affair with his Jensen, clocking up many, many miles which sadly, came to an abrupt end when an ardent admirer who was checking the car out, forgot to stop and caused huge rear damaged, writing the car off.

It was then sold to another enthusiast in Tasmania.

Fast forward to 2018 and it too is now in QLD awaiting a rebuild. Let’s hope that there is a happy ending to this story. Our Jensen’s deserve it.

Hi Steve hope all is well.
Silvajene as she is named in our family is doing well.  After 1 & 1/2 years use within our family we have enjoyed our Jensen for 34,000 miles. Jensen Interceptor 115/2868 is currently employed/deployed for a variety of tasks. As a family get away car the Jensen is a perfect holiday ingredient and as my daily driver she is just what I needed. "Silvajene" still has a little way to go to be all that she will be. I am thoroughly enjoying the journey and what she has added to our family life

Information supplied by Adam


Hello from Tasmania, Australia I have just purchased a mk1 is there any information that you would like?
I currently have it being repaired ready for regular use.
I have only had it for two weeks.
Consisting of purchase a road trip of 1600 miles back to home (over a fun 3 days), government controlled safety check and now it has been in a mechanic shop for the past week.
So looking forward to it being at my home properly.
The Jensen guys down this way some how knew I had it and that it was in a work shop and exactly what work shop within a few hours! How I didn't know.
Anyway " The car's the star!" for sure!
Thank you once again for your help. At a later date I will take the time to get the information together. Should be reasonably easy. Even before i brought it I spotted it on the mk1 register.
Cheers Adam
Kind regards Adam from Bagdad, Tasmania, Australia
