All depends how rusty it is underneath! Pictures can be deceiving! :)

After having owned an Interceptor for two years and it finally been reassembled and able to pass state inspection (our version of MOT), I spent an entire day registering my car at the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles ("Why is the Bill of Sale two years old?", "What is a Jensen Interceptor?", "What is a saloon?", etc.)

For that price you would think they would at least take the leaves and c--p out of the car before taking pictures!! if the car is so fast, fun and loud to drive why has it only done 3000 miles in 15 years?? Strange!

My car is 133-5597 (pretty close). Per the Richard Calver data, mine left the factory 27 Jan 1972. So they cranked out 78 Interceptors between September '71 and the end of January (4 months)…

About 5 a week.... I guess that' probably not really enough to pay the bills, though.

PS> I got the info off the data plate in the Hemmings ad.

Well, that certainly would add a little to the shop-floor workload!

Thanks for the update.
