Barn-find 1973 Jensen Interceptor Series III...Driven into a corner of a big dry barn until its owner was able to use it again, sadly, this dramatic white Interceptor was to remain there, untouched for 30 years until now, when it recently emerged, blinking into the sunlight. Supplied by Charles Follett of Berkeley Street in September 1973, this Jensen had been enjoyed by three owners until it came into the possession of Alan McKechnie in mid-1983. Alan was perhaps best-known as the man who gave Nigel Mansell his first drive but he also played a part in the racing careers of Andy Rouse, Barrie Williams, Mike Walker, Bob Evans and Alan Rollinson, created the Puma Formula 3 car and his team, Alan Mckechnie Racing, won the European F5000 Championship in 1974.
When extracted from the barn, the Jensen moved freely on its wheels and appears to sit all square. The Black Leather interior looks in very good shape apart from the driver's side door card, the headlining is fine and an afternoon's cleaning could work miracles. The floors and inner arches appear sound and the doors shut exactly as they should, but obviously the car is in need of restoration. It has been started within the last few days and, spookily, the lights, indicators and a number of other things appeared to work straight away.
Potential buyers are invited to form their own opinion as to the viability of this project but with immaculate Interceptors following Aston Martins in terms of saleability, the numbers invite serious consideration.
This Sleeping Beauty is looking for a Handsome Prince.
