How many known Jensen Interceptors are there in Tassie? Are there any other mk1s?

About 9 that I can think of including some that have been laid up for a long time and an early mk1 (Vignale like yours) that is a wreck.

By my count, there are 15 other Jensens in TAS ... soon to be 16. There are 3 Mk1's ... Adams + 2 Mathina cars (although one of the cars is a rusted, incomplete suitable only for limited spares). None of the Mk1's in Tasmania are Vignale built. Vignale built the first 60 or so Interceptors before the complete production and tooling was shipped to the UK. The last car believed to be Vignale built was #115/2570.

Aren't the vignale cars the ones without the vent behind the c-pillar badge, or did some english cars have that as well?

15?!? Really?

And what is the 16th?

I can only think of:

My Mk3
Dad's Mk3
Mick's Mk3
Sarge's Mk 2
Basil's Mk2
Nick's Mk2
The green and tan Mk2 in the north
The burnt out ex Cropredy Bridge Garage Mk2
Adam's Mk1
The good Mathinna Mk1
The bad Mathina Mk1
Mick's J-H
The J-H in pieces near Sarge's place.

That is 13. What have I missed?

The Vignale cars do have the closed C-Pillar ... but so do the early English cars. The Vignale cars have a whole let of extra features not found on later production cars. I will feature a lot of this stuff in the future in the JChats. Stay tuned.
