Additional Information

taken from Richard Calver’s Data Chassis Book:

  1. originally a demonstration vehicle , this was purchased by Mrs Graeme Smith , an Australian Customer who collected it in London and shipped it to Australia 5 September 1967.

  2. However, the car was built on experimental chassis that was built in 1966 as known as JM/EXP/116 but renumbered as production chassis 115/2496. it carries Vignale body number 55.

  3. Richard Claver advises that it is pointless to talk about the date a Jensen was built. They took weeks or months to build so there is a series of dates in build. The two EXP Interceptors were driving at the time of the Motor Show in 1966 so you know they were built before then. To get the sequence of dates for every part of the process, you would best read the file which Robey can copy for you.
