History of the Jensen Interceptor:

The Jensen Interceptor is a Grand touring car which was hand-built at the Kelvin Way Factory in West Bromwich, near Birmingham in England, by Jensen Motors between 1966 and 1976. The body was designed by an outside firm, Carrozzeria Touring of Italy, rather than the in-house staff. The early bodies were built in Italy by Vignale, before Jensen took production in-house, making some subtle body modifications.

Jensen Motors used Chrysler V8 engines for the Interceptor, starting with the 6.2-liter with optional manual (Mark I, only 22 built) or TorqueFlite automatic transmissions driving the rear wheels through a limited-slip differential in a conventional Salisbury rear axle. Jensen chose to use the 7.2-liter Chrysler V8 engine for 1971 until end of production in 1976.

The Mark III, introduced in 1971, revised the front grille, headlamp finishers, and bumper treatment again. It had GKN alloy wheels and air conditioning as standard, and revised seats.
