Thank you for your reply on Interceptor SNB 992 J Chassis No 123/4088 and for the information that you have

I note that your car was owned by a former JOC member from 1980 - 2014 / 15

The car was offered for sale in the JOC Magazine No 231 in 09/10.2013 for £26,000
The car was offered for sale in the JOC Magazine No 233 in 01/02.2014 for £23,450
The car was offered for sale in the Silverstone Auction on 28.03.2015 but was unsold
The car was offered for sale at the CCA Auction on 21.04.2015 with a score of 81/135 but was unsold
It would appear that you purchased the car later in 2015
I understand that there were two previous owners prior to 1980

If I find out any more information on your car, I will let you know

Kind regards

Thank you for your information on Chassis No 2340/1840

I have details of earlier ownership include notes that the car was re-imported back to the UK in 1977
Early ownership appear to be Hurst Park Motors, Ricard Fromby, T Aked & Sons, John Carter, T Aked & Sons, for sale by Hurst Park Autos, new owner Stephen J Thomas, Francis Braganza and then Keith Boucher, who it would appear, you may have purchased the car from
If you would like some more details please let me know

If I find out any additional information on your car, I will let you know

Kind regards

Hi Jim,

It was actually my fathers car which he gave to me around 2012!
I believe he had it since around 1977!

It’s been a never ending project for me.

Regards

Andrew
