Jensen Interceptor Restoration

Sorry its not a Ferrari restoration but still an iconic car.

Coming to the end of the restoration of a Jensen Interceptor 3.

A few mechanical issues when we got it.
I particularly liked the stall when hot problem, which meant you had to keep revs up and in an auto it conflcts nicely with slowing down for a junction. Made for an exciting test drive!!
All now resolved apart from the noisey diff whith will be done over the next few weeks.

Body had a few issues but Al at Alsa Automotive is working his usual magic

Nice work on a car that you don't see much anymore.

Did it need engine or tranny work? (Wait, that's a dumb question - it's a Chrysler drivetrain isn't it?) Let me rephrase that. How much engine & tranny work did it need?

'99 550, Rosso Corsa / Nero, S/N:114654, Assy: 31836, Engine: 52084

High mileage, low compression, and missing on a few cylinders.....just like my cars.

The Jensen Interceptor is a cool car with a cool name. Great colour, looks similar to the Sebring-blu/racing red on the bluebird!

Engine and gearbox had had work previously as well as comparitavely new clutch. Drivetrain work really limited to very noisey diff and new cable to sort out poor gear selection issues.

You are right David, it is a great colour and a very similar shade of red to your Bluebird

Looking good. When do you expect it to be on the road?
