1952 JENSON INTERCEPTOR - £Auction
This super original Interceptor was was sold on 10th September 1952 via the specialist agent Brooklands Motors on London's Bond Street, and assigned with the registration mark LUF 832. Finished in grey, it was purchased by a Mr. Dunmore of Norwich who kept the Jensen in his possession for a further 10 years. The next owner, a Mr. Gibson of Great Yarmouth, kept the car for a further 6 years, during which time changing the body colour to Cream. Records of road tax end in 1969 so we assumed the Jensen was exported outside of the UK at this point.The history picks up around 1990 when a Mr. Mitchell from Sheffield, having owned a similar car earlier in his life, decided to relive his youth and to find another early Interceptor. The only suitable car was to be found on the other side of the world in Australia. So naturally Mr. Mitchell booked a flight and took off to Australia, buying this very car on the spot.The Jensen was shipping back to the UK and into Mr. Mitchell's ownership until the early 2000s, at which the current vendor acquired the car. The Jensen is exceptionally original, and with the exception of a colour change back to metallic Grey, appears not to have been restored. The convertible hood is, we believe, the original, as is the red leather interior which is in excellent condition with few signs of wear. The odometer reads just over 23,000 miles, and whilst we cannot warrant this figure, it is in our view a believable reading. The aluminium coachwork is in very good order and the older repaint holds up very well. The Jensen starts and runs nicely.Offered with original Buff log book and later 1990s V5, this is a very rare survivor in very original and unmolested condition. An interesting and stylish alternative to more obvious choices from the 1950s.
