Quote This truly is a very special Mk1 Interceptor, not only is it 1 of just 46 left hand drive Mk1 Interceptors built but it was the personal transport of the extremely famous Author and International Playboy Harold Robbins. One of the best-selling writers of all time, he penned over 25 best-sellers, selling over 750 million copies in 32 languages, Robbins has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 6743 Hollywood Boulevard. It was not only Robbins books that would make him famous but his hedonistic lifestyle also became a source of notoriety. The Jensen was Harold Robbins personal transport for around 20 years and was often seen on the South of France/ Monaco scene, parked in the various harbours next to his private yacht (as seen in the pictures) and whisking him from parties to Casino's up and down the coast, still even sporting a "Port Pierre Canto" parking sticker on the windscreen. Robbins loved the Jensen so much he sent the car back to the Jensen factory in around 76 for a refurb and he often used a picture of him sitting on the front of a Jensen on his books dust covers. This Jensen Mk1 Interceptor has some very interesting features from its yellow Marchal head lights, to air conditioning, to its metal sunroof as specified by the author and most importantly it's dash mounted Dictaphone in which Harold Robbins would dictate his latest best seller often reflecting his own experiences and latest escapades as he fluttered between his boat and parties.

Chassis 117/2642 - "117/2642 remained in Robbins’ ownership until his death in 1997 and was then offered for sale with a French classic car company. Seemingly, they traded the car out to a Belgium dealer, who in turn sold the car to the Dutch classic car specialists, Oldtimerfarm. In 2014, 117/2642 was acquired by the London-based classic car dealers, Classic Autombiles Ltd, the car finding a new owner in 2015."

So filming location could be Classic Autombiles Ltd showroom??
