1938 SS100 Jaguar 2½ Litre AUCTION
- Location: SURREY, United Kingdom
According to the supplied heritage certificate, 49034 was manufactured in 1938 and first supplied by Appleyard of Leeds to a Mr G. A. Wilson. The list of owners from 1938 to date is available in the car’s file including details of its journey to Kuala Lumpur in 1963 in the possession of a Mr Anthony Sissons and its return the same year. The SS100 then changed hands in 1968 to a Mr Forster of Nottingham who sold it the following year to a Mr Guyatt of Harrow. In 1974 the Jaguar left the British Isles a second time, on this occasion for Switzerland where it then spent more than 30 years in the ownership of one collector before returning to Britain once again in 2006 to be sold by Coys to the current owner.
Following restoration the SS100 presents magnificently with lustrous red coachwork and high quality burgundy leather upholstery. The brightwork is polished to a mirror finish including the desirable chrome wire wheels. Mechanically, 49034 is in equally impressive condition with the engine firing easily and performing strongly, the gearbox changing smoothly and with little effort and the brakes pulling the car up firmly without drama. Weather equipment is in excellent condition with the new complementary red hood with red leather hood bag and full tonneau.
Also supplied is a FIVA passport and a booklet with pictures and other information about this splendid SS100. This superb car also comes with German historic registration documents and last but not least, the car posses an original, not a reprint, owner’s manual.
It’s definitely amongst the finest examples we have seen and suitable to grace any collection of Jaguar historic sports cars.
This car is going under the hammer at Coys forthcoming auction at the Techno Classica Show, Essen, Germany, on 13th April 2013. For further information please go to www.coys.co.uk or contact Coys on +44 (0) 208 6147 888.
