Hello Steve,

thanks for your info about my car listed in the Data Chassis book as being ex factory in1967. I`am curious to find out, whether the car is built in Torino or in West-Bromwich.

Enclosed you`ll find some more photos: on the instrument panel/console there is no "selectaride control" switch; the system was never installed. And finally another little detail: I quote the author John Tipler (Jens. Int./The complete story, 1991):

"The prototype never had power assisted steering and it was probably unique in it". My comment: probably not - unfortunately - because parking is always a struggle!

Again, thank you for your help!

Best regards

Hans

Hans has now indicated that he is the owner of this car.

Should you know of a way or company of repairing the 8 Track please let me know and I will forward the information to Hans.

Obwohl weit entfernt davon Experten der Marke oder gar des Modells zu sein, gibts es eine gewisse Wahrscheinlichkeit, dass es sich hier um einen der extrem wenigen linksgelenkten Interceptors der ersten Serie handelt (Frontblinker über der Stoßstange). Das wären nämlich laut jensenmotors.de gerade mal 78 Stück, die ab 1966 im englischen West Bromwich unter Verwendung von Chrysler-Motoren gebaut wurden.

Wenn die Vermutung zutrifft, dürfte dieses im September beim Concours d’Elegance in Schwetzingen gesehene Fahrzeug äußerst rar sein


 denn von den damals sehr hochpreisigen High-Society Wagen der ersten Serie haben nicht viele überlebt.

Jensen Motors konkurrierte seinerzeit sowohl preislich als auch was das Prestige anbetrifft auf Augenhöhe mit Marken wie Aston Martin (DBS, DB6). Das 1935 von den Brüdern Richard und Alan Jensen in Form einer Inhabernachfolge gegründete Unternehmen ist insbesondere wegen zweier technischer Meilensteine bekannt: im Nachfolgemodell des Interceptors, dem sog. Jensen FF, kam weltweit zum ersten Mal 1966 in einem Serienfahrzeug ein Antiblockiersystem sowie ein permanenter Allradantrieb zum Einsatz.

Although far from being experts of the brand or even the model be it, there's a certain probability that this is one of the very few LHD interceptors in the first series (front turn signals on the bumper). That would namely loud jensenmotors.de just 78 pieces, which were built in 1966 in the British West Bromwich using Chrysler engines.

If the assumption is true, this is likely in September at the Concours d'Elegance in Schwetzingen vehicle seen to be extremely rare because of the then very high-priced high-society cars of the first series not many survived.

Jensen Motors competed at that time in terms of price and with regard to the prestige on par with brands such as Aston Martin (DBS DB6). In 1935 by brothers Richard and Alan Jensen founded as a holder successor company is especially known because of two technical milestones: the successor to the interceptor, called the Jensen FF, came the world for the first time in 1966 in a production vehicle, an anti-lock braking system and a permanent all-wheel drive insert.
