Re: Early Interceptor in Norway

A photo sent to me by the owner in the 80's. From memory he lived in the northern part of Norway. He came over to UK to see me to purchase a set of pistons and cylinder liners I believe and a half shaft. I am not sure, but he might have sold the car to his friend who I also met, named Knut Knutsen, ...

Re: 1950 Invicta "with Jensen body"

Probably a scam, I sent a message to the "seller" a week ago asking for photos showing chassis condition and heard nothing since .
He is still looking for Invicta chassis photos on the net to clone I guess.

Re: 541 horn push

The above horn push is totally wrong and I doubt if any of the parts would interchange.
Inner side should look as below picture.
I can get the "Jensen" engraved if required on the buttons.
I did have to sit down when seeing the Aston price fr re-manufactured ones.!!

Re: early 4 lt. Interceptors

The 4 litre Interceptor may have been a bit forgotten in the past, but I have always had a liking for them, due to having driven a convertible version many years ago. They handle very nicely, steer easily and have quite a good turn of speed if the need arises. An ideal touring car. The one I had the...

early 4 lt. Interceptors

Has anyone noticed how many early 4 litre Interceptors there are for sale at the moment ?
Four or five in UK and one in Holland I believe.

Re: Notre Dame

Or possibly something after this style ?
The center "O" could resemble the London Eye and be a great tourist attraction.

Re: Notre Dame

Looks like I am on to a winner then; better nip down to the bookies.!! I guess a good deal of the millions/billions we pay into the common market may well go to paying for the Notre Dame resto job. Instead of shelling that obscene amount out to Europe, how much would each ligitimate tax paying Brit ...

PW for sale

I was hoping to complete the PW this year. There is probably less than one weeks work to do to get the car on the road. However due to the rapid onset of arthritis , mainly in my hands, this is not going to happen anytime soon. Therefore I have to sell the car as it is. Will accept highest offer in ...

Re: 1939 Jensen H-Type Chassis 9641, Eng 3980/9447 at Sotheb

Yes, wheels just look too small and don't suit the car, going by photos.
What were originals, 16" ?

Is this the vehicle you are looking for?

Registration number BUE 922
Make BENTLEY
Colour BLUE

Yes
No, search again


Just did DVLC vehicle check.
Could be a big problem if re-registering in UK , or have DVLC got it wrong ?

Re: 541 at H&H auction

Looking at the latest pics, the crankshafts are not 541, but camshaft and rockers look to be right.
Overall, a good basis for a ground up restoration project.
