1971 Jensen Interceptor: Backyard Find

jensen2

This 1971 Jensen Interceptor is listed here on eBay with an opening bid of $7,500 and resides in Canada. Bidding is non-existent, currently; perhaps it’s because Jensens are not known for being cheap to restore and this example looks needy. But like every Interceptor project, it’s hard to resist the aggressive looks and lure of Chrysler V8 power. The seller mentions a host of new parts will come with the car, which indicates he at least had plans of starting a restoration that never moved past removing the hood. Thankfully, it’s included. Rust is said to be contained to the lower sills, doors and rear quarters, but the flat tires likely indicate that this Interceptor hasn’t moved in quite a while, which increases the likelihood of rust entering the floors. It’s far from the worst case of Jensen neglect we’ve seen, but is the opening bid still too strong for this project?

    Oh if I could only go back to the late 90’s and stick a few grand in my wallet. Back in the day you’d see a fairly well-sorted series 3 on eBay go for not much more than that. A parts car like this would have gone for maybe $2500.
