This rare, right-hand drive, automatic, Mk.I Interceptor is an original UK car, first registered on 5th March 1968. The car remained in the UK until 2007 when it was exported to the continent where it belonged to our Belgium vendor.
The decision was taken to treat the car to a sympathetic restoration in 2014/15 at a cost of approximately €30,000. Initially, it was subject to a mechanical overhaul with many new parts fitted including a new radiator with dual fans to cure the occasional overheating issues of the early cars. The engine was also partly dismantled and checked for any damage or wear.
At this point, the choice was made to fully strip and repaint the car in its original colour of Crystal Blue and, naturally, all of the brightwork was removed and refinished also. The wonderful Italian-styled cockpit presents very well with what, at first glance, appears to be the original interior showing only nominal signs of wear.
It's accompanied by a history file containing many past invoices, and whilst the car was previously UK registered, it's currently registered in the EU, so it will have a NOVA identity applied for at the time of sale.
