Coys quote him:

‘The Interceptor saloon was not a shape that took readily to being converted to a soft-top, so the whole rear end of the car was restyled with more square-cut lines and a proper boot lid. This restyling was a complete success, giving the new car a very balanced profile, especially with the hood down.’ – ‘Jensen’ by Keith Anderson

Well the sale price indicates to me that the seller found a buyer who found a good car and realized it is cheaper to buy finished verses restoration to get what you want. Happy for both people. RacerJoe

Someone who was there has said that the auctioneer mentioned it was the best Jensen he‘d seen in the past 40 years.
