Watch “Love That Car : Jensen Interceptor + Volkswagen Syncro” on YouTube

Nice little video highlighting a couple of vehicles with an interesting link.
The Jensen interceptor and the Vw syncro share a piece of technology dating back to the sixties that make the syncro, well, a syncro.
The Jensen intercepter FF ( standing for Formula Ferguson) was a early 4WD road car credited as being one of the first to use a viscous coupling to sort out power distribution between the front and rear axles automatically without driver intervention.
Although the Jensen shown isn’t an FF it’s still worth watching the first bit.. Or just skip to the Syncro at around 11 minutes in.

Pretty rare 16″ syncro just “pops up”


Just chanced across this syncro, on a forum where the owner has been asking for some help, nothing unusual about that until he posted a picture! The Double cab T3 syncro 16″ appears to be a Right hand drive and a Jagdwagen! For the uninitiated this may not seem like much but until a few years ago most people believed that right hand drive 16″ syncro didn’t exist but over the last few years more and more keep appearing. For another one to appear and be a Jagdwagen (hunting car) is pretty special, probably unique as vw only made 2138 16″ syncro as it is! The owner has had the vehicle from new and paid a reported £17000 for it new and had to wait 18months for delivery!
