We are pleased to offer 1975 Jensen Interceptor Convertible Mk III s/n 1736. Designed by Carrozzeria Touring, the 1974-1975 Jensen Interceptor Convertible was both elegant and luxurious, with only 467 Convertible models built (mostly for the American market) between the start of production in March 1974 and the end of production in late 1975. Powered by a Chrysler 7212 cc (440 cubic inch) V-8 with a 4-barrel carburetor backed by a TorqueFlite automatic and a Salisbury limited slip differential the Jensen Interceptor did not lack for power.

1975 Jensen Interceptor Convertible Mk III s/n 1736 is an S4 model, the last of the Interceptor convertibles, built in August 1975 and features the very late leather-trimmed dash with a walnut face and center console. As the last of the Mark III convertibles it also features cast alloy wheels, an electric-hydraulic power top and rear windows, electric door windows, reclining front seats, power steering, air conditioning, a wood-rimmed steering wheel, a stereo with twin speakers, reversing lights and an electric clock, every possible option ever offered on the Interceptor convertibles.

The 440 Chrysler engine in Jensen s/n 1736 has been fully rebuilt and fitted with aluminum cylinder heads, an aluminum intake manifold, steel billet rods and a forged crank. The engine was over-bored to 451 C.I.D. and completely rebuilt, balanced and blue printed and then dyno tested by Hudson Historics, Ossining, NY producing a stump-pulling 483.7 ft lbs of torque @ 3,500 rpm and a more-than-adequate 367.0 hp @ 4,700 rpm. The total cost was just at $25,000. We have the Dyno sheets on file. The TorqueFlite automatic transmission was also rebuilt at a cost of $2,000. We have full documentation with the numerous work orders.

1975 Jensen Interceptor Convertible Mk III s/n 1736 has extremely nice dark-blue-metallic paint over a very straight body, excellent chrome and excellent black leather with a black canvas top. Fitted with a Becker Mexico radio and complete with the original owner’s handbook and workshop manual. Also fitted with a high-dollar set of 17″ wheels that duplicate the original wheels mounted with Continental Sport Contact 235/50 ZR 17 tires plus it includes the original 15″ factory-supplied cast alloy wheels and tires. 1975 Jensen Interceptor Convertible Mk III s/n 1736 is luxurious, comfortable, offers top-down motoring and a staggering amount of power, priced to sell at $49,500 or best offer.
