Originally Copper Brown/Tan.

„Here's your chance to own an extremely original and unmolested Jensen Interceptor with the famous 440 Chrysler engine. This car has never been restored and has spent most of the last 30 years in a climate-controlled garage only being driven occasionally to keep it in working order. The interceptors are truly unique vehicles. You have the last of the great 60's muscle luxury GT's. If you look at the other European GT's powered by American engines such as the Iso you realize the Jensens are a bargain in today's market.

The interior is actually in very good condition but the leather dye on the door panels, front seats and console has worn unevenly and would benefit greatly from a re-dye. The driver's seat leather does need repair or recovering. There are no cracks in the dash. The wood around the gear selector has excellent veneer, but the clear finish coat has cracked as is typical on English cars of this era.“

The original 440 engine starts and runs very well with no smoking, rattles or any other bad habits. it would take very little to make a daily driver out of this car. Wouldn't be nice to own an exotic with a powerful engine that can be serviced with parts from your local parts store?“

USD 19,500 (!?)

Looks like it could be a rust free car from the pictures. Too bad there are no interior/engine pictures. :)

Paint looks like it has been on the car for years but only close examination will tell for sure. :)
