I recently became the keeper of this 1970 Interceptor MK2 123/3854, having wanted one since the early 1970s, when I saw one on holiday In France as a child. It was sat next to us in the queue for the Ferry home and had steam gently rising from the engine bay!

My example has some features of the Mk3 model, as previous owners have adapted the car to their tastes.

The most obvious are the Mk3 wheels and wing side vents to the exterior.

On the interior it has had re upholstered Mk3 front seats and centre console controls installed.

The door trims have also been re upholstered, but the rear seat has an original looking patina.

The car was also re painted in Jaguar Ultra Blue Metallic in 2016 for the previous owner, when a new windscreen and all new rubber window and door seals were also installed.

Looking at the history file, a replacement, rebuilt 6.3 V8 engine was sourced from the USA in 2003 and the car certainly gets down the road very well!

My first task is to source some replacement tyres as the Pirellis currently fitted are over 15 years old!

I think it also has a Mk3 dash fitted, probably at the same time as the centre console.

Yes, I think amongst the paperwork there's an invoice for a good used Mk3 dash, supplied by Rejen.

That makes sense. According to the chassis data book yours was the last car with the 2-vent Mk2 dash.
