“She’s gotta have those kind of eyes that can look right through the bullshit, to the good in someone. 20% angel, 80% devil. Down to earth. Ain’t afraid to get a little engine grease under her fingernails.”

    I call foul! The real Jensen Interceptor had a Chrysler engine.
    And 4 wheel drive. What a mix of Ford and Generic Motors crapola.

      This is the custom built car for the show…
      Not a stock car. That’s what crate means.

      Only the FF had four wheel drive, all others were RWD

      Only the Interceptor FF had 4wd. All others were 2wd. Early models had the 383 cube Chrysler, and the Mk3 version had the 440.

        I’m pretty sure some had the 360 Wedge, too.

          I had a Mk3 Interceptor many years ago, and researched them a fair bit at the time. As I recall it was only the 383 up to the Mk2 and all the Mk3’s had the 440.
          Check out the guy in England who modified his one with a Viper V10 recently, and did some extensive body mods too.

    I maybe mistaken, but as I recall, Jenson Interceptors were powered with a Chrysler 440ci engine.

    My bullshit-o-meter is pegged! Typical movie car = Chevy power train. I remember the interceptor with rwd & a 440 mopar.

    I know it was the best looking car that year. That’s when everything started getting boxie and squared off. Except for some the muscle cars. Particularly Mopar and Generic Motors. Ford just sucked from the get go. After all, their idea of a muscle car was a ladies grocery hauler (Mustang). Look it up, that’s what Mustang was designed for.

    So let me get this straight your calling a boss 429 a grocery getter.what do you call a muscle car?

    Can I just say that it is great that this franchise has always used classic American Muscle, albeit a restomod, alongside the modern definition of a muscle car and have never tried to force feed us the fuel efficient friendly cars that the masses are driving. Thank God we have never seen a blown Prius!
