Eric Morecambe's 1968 Jensen Interceptor

This Jensen Interceptor was bought new by Eric Morecambe in the autumn of 1968 and used regularly by the comedian. It rose to particular prominence in a television interview in 1972, when Morecambe appeared on Parkinson and described the time when he was taken ill behind the wheel. Morecambe had actually just suffered a mild heart attack.

He managed to persuade a passer-by to drive him to hospital in the Interceptor. The member of the public was so excited to be driving the Jenson that it took him several minutes to realise who his passenger was. Today the car is owned by Silverstone Auctions (although it is for sale).
