Please find below the details of my Interceptor MKI.


Chassis: 117 2605

Build: 1967

First registration: 20/09/1968 in Brussels, Belgium


Dark brown colour. Original: dark grey (still that colour inside hood, but very similar to current colour), tan trim.


The first owner was a person living in Ixelles (Brussels).

My dad bought the car second hand in 1970, and he drove it for three years. After that, it had been garaged for 38 years. He gave it to me recently. It still drives great. Did some minor repairs. Still some rust under door panels and needs new painting.


Below some info from Richard Calver:


It is a rare model, being what's known as a motorised chassis. At the start of Interceptor production, Jensen Motors built 32 of these chassis between October 1966 and August 1967. It was part of a deal with Sincar, the Italian distributors, who wanted Interceptors to sell in Europe.

The motorised chassis were body-less chassis with all the main components installed. They were sent to Vignale in Turin for bodying and finishing, after which they were sent to Sincar for distribution to dealers in Europe. One of the dealers was Establissements Beherman–Demoen S.A., Brussels.

I don't know when Beherman took delivery of 2605 but it obviously took some time before the car was built and sold. The chassis was shipped from Jensen on 8 May 1967 but as you say it was not registered until September 1968.


Cheers,

JL
