*Very well presented

*Many upgrades


Quite how the Interceptor appealed to both the last vestiges of post-war old money and newly-wealthy stars of showbusiness is testament to its rakish looks, which hinted at the power that lay beneath the panelwork. Here is a 1969 big-block (7.2-litre) example that has enjoyed some sensible mechanical upgrades to improve the driving experience and to boost longevity. The engine has been fully stripped-down and re-built with new pistons and bearings and fast road cam means even more power is supplied at the squeeze of the throttle. New timing chain and gears keeps the internals running smoothly, as does electronic fuel injection and ignition, while an in-tank electric fuel pump supplies the fuel. Silicon hoses keep the liquids in motion and a complete new wiring loom supplies the sparks. Twin electric fans keep the engine cool and a stainless steel exhaust system is fitted. MPH is delighted to report this example is in very good order bodywork- and paint-wise: the glass and trim are to the same order and new 17-inch alloy wheels with new tyres complete the look. Behind the fresh treads is a set of uprated four-pot AP brakes and Koni shock absorbers and for those liking brightwork, re-chroming has been carried-out. The interior was always an Interceptor strong-point and this car's does not disappoint. The fully retrimmed leather interior shows little sign of use and the seats are well cushioned: carpet, door panels and dashboard (the rev counter has been modified for electronic ignition) are as good, as is the wood. The steering wheel is by Motorlite. All in all a superb example with sensible modifications that make this Jensen a highly useable example.
