thanks for jc #292
one of best reads so far,lots of convertibles to drool over.
the FFF 100 is a BEAST. i always thought it was bit of a race car ie tubeular chassis,no interior etc.
but that things cool. 120 mph with one side off the track. :o wonder where it is.

I would love it in my garage too. Rumours abound about it whereabouts .... the most common that it is France. Does anyone know any more?

It always amazes me how things like this can just disappear...
Also all the Interceptor Rs. Who buys them? They don't seem to be JOC members. You would think someone THAT much of a fan of Jensens to spend over £100,000 on an Interceptor would join the club?

That blown ff is going to be awesome hey
one thing i have notice is that nearly all the of interior photos of interceptors is that they're in neutral and not in park.

car
#006 looks better with wire wheels
#007 awesome
#016mk2 bumper over riders and door cards?
#018 abs testing or setting
#053 front bumper off of something
#054 maybe the first jensen with vented badge and surround on rear 1/4
#073 back to the opening 1/4 window and recessed badge

#142 red jensen badge on the front,instead of blue for the FF

may be im getting picky and like to look at all of the differences in these cars.
but shouldnt MK3 FF's have some MK3 styling cue's.i cant see any.
ok so they have alloy GKN wheels,
but what about MK3 front bumpers
cast headlight surrounds,wouldn't be hard to mill the interceptor units square so they will fit.
the console is still MK2
and the aircleaner is still MK2 units.
havn't see an interior shot of the back seats so can;t tell
and do they have vented disc brakes?

rusty FF's
