Aggressive price. Don't care for the grill or the re-trim.

Good condition but the modifications are a bit polarizing and don't make the car worth more. Hard to imagine $20K for a grill and steering wheel.

Some extra indicator? Lights on dash, dial surrounds been blacked, different gear selector and certainly a personal interpretation of the original grille but looks clean from this far away. Light surrounds look like Series 4 copies? Steering wheel is similar but not same as one shown in a brochure ( have seen it fitted to a RR Camargue)
Ignition gear housing has been modded. Badge below boot.
Oh and isn't that bottom lip on the spoiler meant to be trimmed off? (I have one but haven't fitted it yet)
Personally - the double bumper thing ?? What was Hensen thinking (ok I know they were all but kaput but really?)

Hi,

2211 makes it an Interceptor, Saloon, LHD - i.e. not an original factory convertible.
However a 2311 or 2310 is a factory covertible -LHD

With this in mind asking price becomes hilarious if non factory convertible

Now being sold as 2311/1952 at a greatly reduced (though still optimistic?) price:

Same pictures as eBay ad, but different address. Might be careful with this one.

As cannon ball says, don't go on chassis numbers, my convertible if you look in databook is down as a saloon yet it has been recognised as a factory convertible as the chassis number is stamped inside bootlid, besides that we know who owned her back in the late 70s early 80s. It's also on v5 as convertible. The entries in the wilderness years were not accurate.
