    Official production of the S3 Jensen Interceptor ended in 1976 following the closure of the company due to financial difficulties, however a group of investors were able to revive the model as the S4 in 1980’s. The original works service department had remained in operation at the Kelvin Way Factory, West Bromwich, near Birmingham, fourteen of these cars were effectively hand built until the project ran out of funds again in 1990. The design was more or less the same as the S3 but the engine was the smaller Chrysler 360 cubic inch, 5.9 litre unit as the 7.2 litre engine had been discontinued. This well document example is the thirteenth car to have been built and the last Convertible Interceptor to have been produced. Constructed between 1989 and 1990 the car featured at the Convertible Show in Paris and also at a show at the NEC. It has also appeared in magazine articles and several books. Showing 44,500 miles the car is in generally good condition, the body / paint is in good order with no corrosion evident, the interior appears to be original and although the drivers seat is showing signs of wear generally the interior is good as is the colour coded mohair soft top, the electric hood mechanism is also working well. Mechanically the car is in good working condition, having been part of a small collection the car has seen ‘weekend ‘ use over the last few years and has been maintained well.
