Hemmings Find of the Day: 1974 Jensen Interceptor

By Dan Strohl

Hemmings

It’s funny how the right paint scheme can shift your perception of a car you’re already familiar with. Take, for instance, this 1974 Jensen Interceptor, with its nifty two-tone paint that certainly helps the car look more like an American muscle car than most Interceptors. From the seller’s description:

1974 Jensen Interceptor 3, Orig.Cond. 46K miles. This is one of the most amazing cars driven in America. The best of three worlds…Handmade in West Bromwich, England…Designed by Italian body designer in the late 1960’s…Powered by the factory with an American Chrysler 440 muscle engine! These current car photos are an accurate portrait of her fine condition. The paint on this car is awesome! The leather interior is in incredible shape. The air conditioning blows cold and this is a reliable, exotic, mega collectible, that is so unique, it is a show stopper and a jaw dropper every time! No rust whatsoever, stored at a private home and garaged, shielded from the intense sun and nice and dry without moisture.

Reminds me of what would happen if a Pacer and a Z mated and had children.

I too am ignorant of the Jenson Interceptor.

It looks to be in excellent shape.

Maybe I’m ignorant, but I don’t think I’ve ever heard of these cars, and I’ve read every book and mag about vintage American powered cars that I could possibly get my hands on. Not to be insulting, but the roofline reminds me of that of a Pacer.
