Eric Morecambe’s favourite car has gone on sale at a classic motor show for £150,000.

The comedian bought the Jensen Interceptor from a factory in West Bromwich for just £4,500 in 1968.

He kept it in the garage of his home in Harpenden, Hertfordshire, and was fond of driving the sports car.

The car remained within his estate following his death in 1984 until it was sold to Silverstone Auctions in Warwickshire for £27,000.

It has since been fully restored and went on display at the London Classic Car Show at the ExCel arena in London Docklands at the weekend.

Eric’s chauffeur Mike Fountain, who lives in Morecambe, also used to drive the car when he worked for the comedian.
