Jensen - Jensen Interceptor

Jensen revived the Interceptor name for their new car of 1966 for a stylish car that retained the Chrysler V8 engine. The company had comissioned Carrozzeria Touring in Italy to design the Interceptor shape, with the bodywork of the easrlier cars made at Carrozzeria Vignale. Touring only made bodies using aluminium in their Superleggera fashion, whereas Vignale bodywork was always made in steel, partially because it was so much easier to get hold of at the time, and cost so much less. Afterward the bodies were built at Jensen, with some inevitable changes. The Jensen Interceptor came either as standard rear wheel drive or with the 4 wheel drive version called the Inteceptor FF (FF standing for Ferguson Formula who developed the system), these FF's being produced until 1972, when the FF was replaced by a new model SP which had a 7.5 litre engine, the SP standing for "Six Pack" that referred to the three twin barrels on top of the engine. Jensen Interceptor production came to an end in 1976. 

Jensen Interceptor tyre size listed on the earliest cars were 6.70 x 15 which is 185VR15 radial equivalent size, but by 1969 the Jensen factory were listing and fitting the E70VR15 tyre which is the wider version (but same diameter) of this 185VR15 size, which is tyre size 205/70VR15. The 205/70VR15 size was the largest tyre size listed as fitted at the factory until Jensen production ceased with the "Inteceptor III", although we are assured that the larger 215/70VR15 tyre size was also used on the later Interceptors. Blockley makes all three of these tyre sizes, suitable for any of the Jensen Interceptor models - the 150mph speed rated 185VR15 which was the speed rate specified in period, the wider 205/70VR15 size (now with W 168mph speed rating), as well as the largest size 215/70VR15 tyre. We guarantee these are the best tyres you can drive on, and the low prices of these Blockley tyres is only because we selll direct - see full details of these three Jensen Interceptor tyres below.
