115/3010 SEA 900G not recorded

Post by RAP72 »

I have the following enquiry about a flyer

Hello,

I have a flyer of the Jensen Interceptor MK1 probably edited for Jensen.
It is only one side printed.

In annex I send you the flyer.

Do you know when this was printed / or the date of the edition of The Observer the article was printed in?

Regards,

Has anyone seen it before?

The statement in the text "power steering is now standard" is probably the clue that this was published quite soon after that point in Interceptor development which was around February 1969 and so was relatively fresh news. I would guess therefore sometime between late February and April 1969 for the article.

SEA 900G was the 1968 Earls Court demonstration car, and power steering became standard from that point. I think Gordon Wilkins borrowed the car shortly after the motor show but I am by no means certain.

Have checked records and found that 115/3010 was the intro chassis for PAS as standard.
