Grant,

You don’t miss a thing!

That’s the original plate according to Calver’s Genome.

You’ll obviously know it’s for sale then .

I think this really hi lights how Jensen prices are wounded this should be £250,000
He is obviously a motivated seller, I would think that this has to be the best Jensen FF on the planet, and for 150k to the right person is an excellent buy, it has to put the other 150k FF,s that are on sale very much in the shade,,

By way of comparison, Cropredy charge £250,000-00 for a rebuilt Interceptor + cost of donor car.
This FF is said to have cost £140,000-00 to rebuild and it looks fabulous. So the seller is, presumably, only recouping his expenditure, not making a profit.

The seller states in excess of £140k.

I believe it is much more. He will not recover costs
