Hi Steve 

Thanks for the excellent Mk1 web site, there's never a month goes by without you adding some gem of information.

Seen your note on the GM Express and yes your right it's about time I sent you an update re 115/2937. I decided after 50 years it was time old "Genghis" had some TLC. I've owned the Mk1 since 2015 having wanted an Interceptor for a long time. At the time I thought I would simply enjoy the car as it was, so after making sure everything worked OK got out to as much as I could. 

So far I've only undertaken basic work on things like the exhaust manifolds/brakes/ engine/service etc, many of the fantastic Jensen folk I've met were saying, why not improve this, why not replace that. I resisted the urge to start "tinkering" as I knew eventually I would as they say "Bite the Bullet" and do a proper job of getting YBP 5G to a good standard.

Genghis is alive and well and currently undergoing a good restoration. I'm not going for every nut and bolt to be shiny new, I don't want that. I looking to achieve a good working car that I can put the key in and know it's well presented and great to drive.

So far I've stripped down the entire car, leaving the front and rear axles in order to keep moving. After some backward and forwarding, I got the car bead-blasted buy a  local guy with 35 years experience. The results show some good bits and some not so good bits, so the MK1 is now at the welding stage getting some new sections to produce a really solid car.

Next comes paint and refit, will send more updates along the way, but for now, a few pics to add to the web page.

Thanks and Best Regards

Hi Steve - I've started to complete the Data form for 115/2937 there's a large history file with the MK1 with lots of previous owner names which I get in some kind of order and let you have the details. The plan is to sort all the technical issues with the car first and then move on to the interior before a full body restore (hopefully). Ive attached some new pics and the pictures kindly supplied to me by Mike Williams showing the MK1 in 1979 original colour (please could you add a thank you to Mike for me on the pics page)
