  • What kind of car is this?

    A nephew in Cleveland substitute teaches at a private school and is not a "car guy."

    They had some sort of fundraiser last weekend and this car was driven to the event, so it's a contemporary, operable unit, and it's located in upper Ohio. Note that it is Left-Hand Control, or LHC as we say in Studebaker-land.

    He sent me this picture and asked me to identify it. 'Darned if I can!



    Any ideas for sure? BP

        Now that's weird. I'm looking at my post right in front of me and the color picture is clear as day! Sheesh.

        OK; just reposted through Photobucket. Should be OK now. Sorry. BP

            That would be my guess, Bob, but I'm hoping someone will confirm. Thanks. BP

              Jensen FF.
              Big, bad Mopar power through all four wheels.

              The moniker is abbreviation for Ferguson Formula after the all wheel drive F1 car .

                Def a Jensen Interceptor: they were offered in the USA through 1976; a few came through with the FF system and (probably) all of them with the Mopar 440 Magnum.

                  Yes, a Jensen Interceptor. I still have a brochure for one.

                          ATTENTION : BOB PALMA ( and anyone else who cares ) !!!

                          My AVANTI II 1972 got photographed recently with two Jensen Interceptors , a '71 and a '73 .

                          Just go to www.studebakercarclubnsw.com and click on "Past Events" near the top right of the

                          Page , then go to the third event down " Bull & Bush" and you can scroll down through some

                          photos that may be of interest . I think the styling of the AVANTI is 'streets' ahead of the Jensen's

                            The Jensen Interceptor FF 4wd model wasn't made with LHD due to the engine being moved to the left to make room for the 4wd unit, shame about that as they could likely have sold a few.
