Simple Project? 1971 Jensen Interceptor Mk II

Over the years, I’ve purchased many different project cars and they’ve come in various shapes/sizes/conditions…but I’ve always been enchanted with the idea of a project that requires only basic tools, a single parking space, and mostly elbow grease.  A project that doesn’t involve pulling a car off its frame, or massive rust repair, or rebuilding a fiddly vanos module…yeah…that would be a great project. Perhaps this Jensen might offer the right combination of mechanical, electrical, and hard work that could keep you busy, but not break the bank with expensive specialist work? Find this 1971 Jensen Interceptor 2 offered for $9000 in Seattle, WA via craigslist. Tip from Rock On!

Built for crossing Europe at high speeds, it’s a dramatic looking fastback from Jensen Motors Limited of West Bromwich, England. Mechanical parts are NAPA close and most of the other necessary bits can be easily sourced through a network of specialists.
