Re: Two Tone Interceptor Barn Find

David, When an Interceptor was painted two tone, or duotone as it was referred to, the colour change was for the roof so literally only the roof panel had the change of colour, certainly not on the waist line like this one! Quite a few Mk1s were painted duotone. Only about a dozen or so Mk2s were d...

Re: Two Tone Interceptor Barn Find

Hi A stupid question. Are there any records of any Interceptors being painted two tone by the factory(I know this one is strictly 3 tone)? I am excluding out vinyl or painted roofs. The reason that I am asking is that is the sort of thing I could imagine new owners specifying. I am currently working...

Re: Seat Trim Polishing

Sorry to slightly hijack the thread, but my chrome trims on my Mark 111 are pitted, does anyone have any experience of getting them refurbished ? I would rather get them refurbished than replaced, but assume in the worst possible case I can get new ones?

Re: Restore or Restomod?

I do get those owners who want to keep originality. But I prefer to drive the car in a more relaxed and frequent manner so subtle upgrades facilitated by technology improvements improves for me the driving experience and useability: keeping it cooler, holding the road and riding better, freeing up s...

Re: On the road

Let's face it. All the Jensen's in standard form were intended for the emerging freeways especially in the UK where there was no speed limit for some years. I was actually pulled over on the M1 by a couple of female cops in a Daimler Dart SP 250. They said I was lane changing in an Anglia 105E with...
