SELLER REMARKS

You're looking at one of the rarest of already a quite rare breed. This 1976 Jensen Interceptor III Coupe had Rolls-Royce level pricing and production figures that made Bentleys look mass-produced. So when a surviving example of a small batch exists in such original condition. then you know this could be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.


This sportscar was a true status symbol. Touring of Italy crafted a design with a long hood that features graceful curves in the sheetmetal. It's a timelessly seductive profile that was handcrafted in the old British style and given a burly American heart. That's why the Interceptors were the true icon of its day. and the coup was one of the rarest versions. In fact. we believe the white paint (professionally resprayed once) gives this is single-digit rarity. The unique roof design was the direct product of providing a more comfortable back seat and a more sophisticated style. It came from the urging of Jensen's then-owner Kjell Qvale (the man who helped introduce MGs and Jaguars to the USA. ) He liked it so much. Qvale kept one of these in his prized collection for decades. That's the kind of company you keep with this exceptionally rare coupe.


Inside the premium atmosphere is immediate and distinctive. The Interceptors were known for the quality of the leather. wool. and wood that went into crafting these British beauties. In fact. this is a place to pay particular attention. because many people don't realize the true value of an Interceptor as complete as this one. You need seats that are this complete and tear-free. exceptionally plush carpeting. and complete panels throughout. Without these features. there would be thousands $$$$$ more in hidden restoration costs. The coupe body gave these Interceptors a real edge in the grand touring crowd. The roofline was not only distinctive. but it was specifically designed to provide superior headroom for the rear passengers that the hatchback never could. And really. you want to be able to share this special car with as many people as possible. There's even power windows. power locks. an AM/FM/cassette stereo. and factory air conditioning (upgraded to modern R134a) to keep your foursome in luxury.


Under the hood is where the Interceptor really shines because behind the Jensen valve covers is Mopar power. By the time of this Interceptor III. they using the mighty 440 V8. and this powerplant even shows signs of being the original motor. What Mopar power also means is it's a lot easier to keep your rare classic on the road. After all. the parts and knowledge for this 440 motor are plentiful and affordable. In fact. the Torqueflite A727 three-speed transmission was recently replaced so it can continue to handle this big torque powerhouse (just think about the difference it would cost to do that in a more common 1970s Ferrari!) And even the parts network is quite extensive for the Jensen-specific components. Plus. power steering and four-wheel disc brakes keeps this car running with the best vintage crowds out there. And just like the Mercedes-Benzs that Jensen competed against for the premium dollar. the chassis seems to find a nice harmony between pure sports car. and a loafy luxury machine. it's a true grand tourer.


This car comes with a huge file on its service history. plenty of manuals. and even historical/title documentation. So you're looking at a handcrafted and exceptionally rare vehicle that has the perfect balance of power. charm. and pedigree. If you're a true enthusiast and collector. don't miss this opportunity. We could only find less than a handful examples out there like this coupe. Call now!!
