Re: Rare Protectors Jensen model on Ebay

It's only fun Keith, if you say so, I agree with you. On ebay a Dinky Jensen interceptor model car (but in fact it's the design of the FF) is for sale in yellow/orange for GBP 29,99 with original plastic box. The wheels are made more nicely, painted in silver/black. So this guy (CTS) repaints them (...

Re: Rare Protectors Jensen model on Ebay

Do you really think it's an original Dinky? For me it looks more like a cheap remake out of China (costs you less than € 5 per each), the cartonage (if you order 100+) around € 10 per each if you're providing the design in digital form (my knowledge from one of my best friends in Belgium who is CTO ...

Re: Rare Protectors Jensen model on Ebay

I referred to CTS as company, this trading company is offering a lot of (pseudo?) Dinky models in the internet (ebay) If someone buys it ok. - but I have doubts about the value... If somebody of you knows who si selling a nice Interceptor MKIII model (convertible preferred) I'd like to have one for ...

Re: Rare Protectors Jensen model on Ebay

an addition to my last post, you'll find the company in the internet, but in fact it seems to be a fake, used by a german based dealer working mostly via ebay, average price for similar models around € 40, if it's really from the 60's it may be worth it, but if you're looking at the picture there is...

Re: Rare Protectors Jensen model on Ebay

Hi Keith, do you really think it's such old - for me it's more looking as a remake? With bburago you're right, they're not sophisticated but looking nice and I like to have some of my cars in my living room... My opinion is/was, this offer is overprized - that's what I wanted to point out. I like to...

Re: Rare Protectors Jensen model on Ebay

if it's die cast it's of a very low quality, having models of bburago of some of my cars, looking better and costing around € 30-50 :roll:

Re: Apologies if this has already been posted

if someone likes the design, ok - he should buy it. Reminds me a little bit to the upgraded VW Beetle or the Mini, but in this case it's only a copy of some Jensen parts, the rest is quite for sure customized - not mine

Re: interceptor

a Porsche 911 S, ready to drive, no damages, historic plates, around 100,000km, LHD, technical inspection done may reach a sales price around €35-40k. So deduct transport, customs, technical inspection - then you're coming to a realistic prize. Re-Imports from US driveable 50k mls are costing me aro...

Re: interceptor

Hi Peter, Don't know if Nick is doing a swap, but if you're interested in selling your Porsche my brother in law may be interested. He is living in Germany, in case of a deal I will organize transport and customs. My Jensen is not for sale at the moment, but looks like I'm getting a second one (Inte...

Re: Dutch HJGH Autumn weekend 2020

Hi Kees, we intend to participate Sat/Sun with a one night stay in the Hotel. My wife will not get a day off in her company, so Friday is impossible. Do you think booking will be possible to get a room on short notice? Unfortunately we both are dependant on Covid-19 restrictions, my wife is not allo...

Re: Lightweight Interceptor - is this truth?

I'm the same opinion as Grant. This car is a design icone and you can only worsen it by changing something. Okay if you want to add Weber's (quite for sure they're producing an interesting sound) then get the bonnet completely off and redesign it in glassfibre but with the shape of the Jensen. But f...

We made the world more worse than George Orwell thought, Corona is killing our social contacts, health and economy. The climate change (if human made or not) is also affecting us.

Re: V8 Hybrid Meet Switzerland Aug 2020

unfortunately it doesn't look like that - I'm in contact with some scientists of the RKI (heritage car fans like us). At the moment they're stating that they even have not 'understood' the virus, estimation is by now that the pandemie will be ended in around less than 2 years... A second lockdown wi...
