Jensen's striking replacement for the slant-eyed C-V8 first saw the light of day in 1966. It broke some of the firm's established traditions in that the design was outsourced - to Carrozzeria Touring - and the bodies were made of steel rather than glass-reinforced plastic. Power was initially supplied by a 6276cc Chrysler V8, driving through either a four-speed manual or three-speed TorqueFlite automatic transmission to an LSD-equipped Salisbury rear axle. The MkII model of 1969 brought revised frontal styling and ventilated disc brakes. Introduced at the October 1971 Earl's Court Motor Show, the Interceptor III was visually distinguished by cast headlight surrounds, GKN cast alloy wheels and a comprehensively revamped interior and was produced in four Series - G, H, J and S4. By May 1972 the engines on RHD cars had been increased in capacity to a whopping 7212cc. A total of some 6,408 Interceptors were produced between 1966 and 1976.
With current ownership since 2010, this Interceptor III displays a credible c.74,000 miles. Previously, the Jensen has benefited from much expense. Originally White, the Jensen has had a colour change to an attractive shade of Blue. We are informed that remedial work included the wings, sills, rear wheel arches, inner and outer sills and floor pans in the current ownership. Mechanically speaking, the gearbox was refurbished through Cropley, plus other refurbishments that included the fuel tank, new power steering, seals, shock absorbers, stainless steel exhaust and the addition of an Edelbrock carburettor in 2017. 'NDS 631N is offered with a V5C, a collection of old MOT Certificates (dating back to 1985 and 68,207 miles), a Jensen handbook, original workshop manual and parts catalogue and various invoices and bills from a marque specialist.
