Jensen Hire Cars

This Jensen Interceptor is a 1974 J-Series car - fitted with the 7.2 litre Chrysler 440 cu in V8 engine.  It was upgraded to Series 4 specification by the Jensen factory in the late 1980s.  This car has a beautiful burgundy leather interior and since we took these pictures we've replaced the original steering wheel (which had become damaged) with a wooden Moto-Lita three spoke wheel with individually machined centre boss.

During the winter of 2015/2016 we spent £10,000 and 300 hours restoring the Jensen in our workshops.  Here's the story.

 We have kept this car totally as standard, including the Carter carburettor, so it drives exactly as it was intended. It has a rebuilt engine and delivers about 15mpg, which isn't bad for an Interceptor!  It also features a fully functioning Blaupunkt radio cassette.
