Re: Sir Matt

M City bought an Interceptor for Joe Mercer shortly after Matt Busby had his, I know it was white with blue roof but I have not been able to trace it. Anyone?

Re: 115/3010 SEA 900G not recorded

Have checked records and found that 115/3010 was the intro chassis for PAS as standard.

Re: 115/3010 SEA 900G not recorded

SEA 900G was the 1968 Earls Court demonstration car, and power steering became standard from that point. I think Gordon Wilkins borrowed the car shortly after the motor show but I am by no means certain.

Indeed so, but before then he had various positions in the company.

BritArms - you might try and make contact with Jacques Beherman, son of the original Jensen importer . He may well have a photo or two, but would certainly have ionformation on your car.
Good luck and give him my regards!

Re: Vignale Interceptor

Just looking at the Vignale Interceptor for sale, NAB 515D, believed to be the most original( unmolested )Vignale car in existence, though needing a full restoration, and noticed the rear hatch seal is different. Is this the original one, I would assume so, but looking at the other early cars, on t...

Re: Early Volvo P1800 - an urban myth?

As Stu knows, the workshop working on my P6 is restoring what is claimed to be the first Jensen built P1800. I am going over this morning and will take some pics if possible.

Re: NEC SHOW FF ???

Thanks, Edie, the number is a replacement for the original, I think, as my Glass's records do not list it as being issued. Almost certainly not a JML car, but.....!

Re: NEC SHOW FF ???

Any clue as to the original reg number? As far as I remember we did not show an FF in 1971, its place being taken by the first SP. However, FF GEA 99K (130/309), the first FF 111 in Royal Blue, was available as a demo car at Earls Court in 1971.

When you get to it, you will find a Facet pump in the boot, which is why there is the pressure valve!

Re: Geneva Motor Show cars

It certainly was. The biggest promo disturbance at Earls Court that I ever saw was when BMW launched a full Bavarian Oompah band into the show on one Press Day, who proceeded to tour the ground floor before settling down on the BMW stand. The organisers were furious but completely outfaced, not bein...
