Post by Paul Briscoe »

That's quite a project to take on!
The "Ford" Interceptor is quite something too :!:

Blimey Paul. You like a challenge.

These days, opening a can of beans is enough of a challenge for me.

Good luck with your resto project.

Hi Paul, That is quite a project. Looks like it's coming on quite well now though. Great work.
What's the Daimler in the background of one of your pictures?

How much Interceptor is left in the hot rod, apart from the drive train? Any interior? Does it drive anything like a Jensen?
I'd never have owned a 541 if I hadn't fallen in love with the Interceptor first.

Hi Paul

Quite a project to undertake on your car

I would be pleased if you could message me with the Chassis No for your car and if you have any details on previous owners

A small amount of information on your car

Last logbook issued 05.07.2018 - that may now have been updated
Identified as Green - but this may have been the original colour ?
Advised as Taxed until 31.05.2020 ???
I believe that the car was registered in August 1975
124 DTV was in JOC Magazine 106 from 11.1992 - i can look at details if of interest

I believe that your Rat Rod was Chassis No 136/9154 - November 1973

Kind regards

Jim Smith
Mem No 1639
136/8791 RJF 17 owned since September 1978

Looks like the entire chassis was used from the pictures. :)

Pretty cool, although I know nothing about hot rods. I'd make a hole in the door so that you can open it while the engine is running :D

Thanks Chris
Not sure about the daimler I took that picture at the car dealers when I went to see it, he had a nice collection for sale.

The main chassis tubes have been used, it’s got coil springs on the rear & it’s still got the power steering

There’s not much interceptor inside just the gauges, steering column and wheel.

It does drive well but i would say it has lost most of jensons refinement and it’s certainly louder now.
