Replacing the controversially styled CV8 in 1966, just four years after it'd been launched, the Interceptor was virtually the same car underneath. It used a steel tube chassis, four-wheel disc brakes, double wishbone front and leaf spring rear suspension, plus a Panhard rod and live rear axle. What made the difference to buyers was the Vignale-styled steel body, though it did have a downside as it was prone to bad rusting. The Chrysler powerplants remained, options being a 383ci (6.2-liter) or, from 1971 on, a 440ci (7.2-liter) which even came with the legendary Six pack triple carb set-up. Although the car went through various updates from 1969 to 1971, Jensen went out of business through loss of sales in 1976. However, a MkIV version did make it out in 1983, built by new company Jensen Parts & Service. The late 1990s also saw a revival in the Jensen name and new models.
