OJF 789F was supplied new to Charles Follet Limited, Berkeley Street, London, finished in White with Black trim and power assisted steering on the 25th June 1968. A copy of the original invoice, Jensen Motors Ltd guarantee claim form and early maintenance records with Jensen Motors are with the car. We are pleased to report this lovely early Interceptor is still in its original colours and specification, and appears to be correct, unmolested and remarkably original with a mileage of 96,750 that is highly likely to be genuine.
History and paperwork with the car tells us the mileage was 82,019 in 1986 and a further 14,000 miles were covered over the next ten years. In 1996 OJF 789F was placed in a central heated garage where it spent 18 years off the road. Having been dry stored for so many years, the car was treated to a brake overhaul and some light re-commissioning and MOT tested in November 2014 at 96,304 miles. 200 miles were covered over the next year, the Jensen MOT tested again in early 2016 with 96593 miles. Since then, the MKI Interceptor has been owned by a Harrogate based collector who has dry stored the car.
The car has arrived with us presenting as a very honest, original looking car requiring some light re-commissioning having once again spent some time in storage. OJF 789F looks very smart with attractive, high quality older paintwork and smart chrome, has a beautifully aged original trim with superb Black leather seats, good quality door cards and walnut dash. The V8 engine is strong and in very good order, as is the gearbox. We are happy to sell the Jensen in its current condition at the listed price, or alternatively MOT test, service and carry out any required re-commissioning work for an agreed fixed cost. OJF 789F is a beautiful looking, impressive car, and finding honest, largely original early examples can prove very difficult. This is a car that should be enjoyed on the open road, it would be fabulous for long distance touring so we hope its next owner begins to cover some serious miles after just 400 miles in the past 23 years.
