For those that have contributed to the Surviving Mk 1 list website would you please note that after along night of rebuild and recovery I have rebuilt the site, but, unfortunately the address has changed. It is now

http://web.me.com/stevehickey/Intercept ... lcome.html

if you have given information and photos could I ask that you check that your page and your album work - including the hyperlinks to and from. I will also email everyone that I can remember to advise of this change so I apologies if you get the message twice and think I am badgering you.

If you have a Mk1 and wish to add to the work, started by TC and Stoo, please email me using the links.

TVM it is 0900 and I am off to bed!

Brilliant!
117/3139 Tangerine/Mocha March 1969. The first Tangerine Interceptor and used as a demo car during the 1969 Geneva Show. Later sold to Edgar Schwyn, was sold from Switzerland a couple of years ago to a man in either Sweden or Denmark for restoration.
I was in contact with him briefly but, regbrettably, no longer have any contact numbers. Maybe somebody in the Jensen world in those parts will know something??

How interesting, as Pirate Jenny (132/5577) was also first sold to Edgar Schwyn, AG and was shown at the 1972 Geneva Auto Show.

This is a copy of an e-mail i got from Ole Jon in Norway regarding 117/3139 when I was digging in the history of Swedish Jensen's:

"Fra: Richard Calver [mailto:tfmuch@bigpond.com]
Sendt: lø 09.05.2009 04:33
Til: Ole Jon Tveito
Emne: INT 3139


Ole Jon

Last I heard in 2007, Skarin had sold the car to Jan Isnenghi in Germany.

Richard"

(Skarin was the owner in Sweden, Jörgen Skärin to be exact, from a town called Värnamo.)

Last year I visited Jan in Bonn. I saw 3139 first time when it was for sale in Friedrichshafen in 2005. It is now stored in a dry hall.

The seller sent these picturese to me, when i was interested in the car in 2005.

There is another Ex-Schwyn Interceptor for sale in Switzerland. This car was also owned by Peter Monteverdi.

Last month 117 3159 was advertised in a German car magazine. It is still registered and on the road.

Thanks Seba

I have created a page and album for 3139. I have assumed that 3159 is a 117 as well, but until I get more detail I have just added that to the list. If you can you find the advert I will the create a page and add that to the history.

Also thanks to all that have looked and added to this site, which was really started by TC and Stoo' s lists. We now have 91 'found' cars and about 25 albums with one or more photos. A number of others have contacted me and promised pictures and information and when that arrives I will add them to the list.

Please keep the information coming, and suggestions for improvements or errors.

You can email through the 'email me' button on the site if that helps.

Sebastian came up trumps today with 4 or 5 cars and we now have 100 chassis numbers listed with 32 albums. plus a few reg numbers.
to save you looking
http://web.me.com/stevehickey/Intercept ... lcome.html

Just as I finished a good few hours of updating Dion emailed with 17 number that are not on the list. These were gathered a few years ago when he was researching which car to buy.

Who said that there might be about 100 Mk1s surviving? Please stand against that bullet riddled wall and have a cigarette.
:D
seriously thanks for all the info keep in coming.

ps I even got a nice email from the chap selling the Orkney Mk 1 - some of which I have added to that thread in Cars for Sale and his page.

Just after Sebastian gave me the cars to get to 100, Stoo and Dion came up with their lists.

The new number includes a number of 'last known' and a number of 'broken' or 'partly broken' chassis numbers as well as some noted as being restored.

The new number is 152

Have a look at this link: http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:1969_Jensen_Interceptor_Mk_I.JPG

It looks like 115 3256 is shown in a museum.
