JENSEN INTERCEPTOR II AND III
2-door 4-seater coupé.
Jensen's brave attempt to beat Ferrari/Maserati/Iso/Lamborghini/Aston Martin with big handsome Grand Tourer. Sold well to 1974, then hit by inflation and post-energy crisis austerity. Sturdy tubular/platform chassis with Chrysler V8 power (284bhp DIN on SIII models with 7.2-litres(, rigid axle rear suspension, and massive hatchback body styled by Touring but built at West Bromwich. 130mph top speed tempered by high fuel thirst. Rusted badly, but British, By Gad!
