Selling Mk1 Interceptor 115/3213 - OSS 353G

Post by Manwithaplan »

Regrettably, I must now put my Jensen up for sale.
Bought as a bucket of rust over 10 years ago and restored back to road worthy condition, I just haven't got the time to enjoy it like I used to.
I will be showing the car at a local car show in July unless sold: https://www.powderham.co.uk/event/histo ... gathering/ July 13th-14th unless sold.

Bodywork is perfect and mechanically very sound. Paintwork has scratches with the bonnet needing a respray.
A couple of pics here. More with description to follow.

Not many Interceptors around with a tight tailgate gap like that.

Sorry to read you lack the free time to fully enjoy it. Good luck with the sale.

No! He should leave them for those like me that are drooling at the sight of a MkI two tone dash in red.

Hi Mike
I did mean to slate you car ,I love the grey and the mk 1 bit and the interior looks very well done
It's just personally I don't like red cars external ly or internally . If I had a ferrari it would be yellow or grey

Just to avoid any unintentional online wars, Mike is humorously pointing out Steve's typo where he said "did" instead of "didn't"...

Hi don't know what happened there
I'm convinced wrote and read through my previous message but obviously I still messed it up
I definitely originally didn't mean to slate Mike's car

DIDN'T ...... not did as stated in my last txt

Princess Grey with bright red interior was a "stock" colour combination for the C-V8, I'm assuming as defined by Jensen, to be delivered to the dealer to be sold there- a rather unusual colour today for a stock car. But the red works well, even if you (like me) don't really like the colour. People comment on the red interior, and then I'm reminded of the colour, because I'm so accustomed to it and am not really aware anymore of how bold it is. Really odd!
