Nice original car that is usable as is. But the engine (440 Chrysler) needs a little warming over I'm going to shoot for about 450hp (500hp is easily attainable with these motors, but I want to keep it civilized )

Be prepared for horrendous wind noise, induction noise, whistles from the wipers and wipers that won't stay on the screen at speed.

Nice though, I'd love one.

For those who don't know what it is:
It's a 1972 Jensen Interceptor.
It was made near Birmingham, England by Jensen Motors company; body designed by Carrozzeria Touring in Milan, Italy; and powered by some Detroit muscle in the form of a Chrysler 440 v8.
These cars when new were almost as expensive as an Aston Martin. Even the headliner is all leather. All hand built and they only put out about 600 cars a year.

I've already driven it on one of Florida's famous torrential downpours, and yes, the wipers are almost worthless!!! lol! But to be fair, most older cars from the 70's on down have worthless wiper systems compared to modern cars.

Yes, the 440 is original. The Jensen brothers built bodies for many famous cars (the Subeam Tiger, Austin Healey 3000, Volvo P1800) but they also built a very few of their own cars. They were too small a company to build their own engines, so they outsourced those and often used Chrysler v8s.

Did they do a Bugeye Sprit as well?
