JAGUAR MK VII

Saloon.

It's a big car: nearly 2 tons laden and over 16ft long, and rust will have taken its toll. Handling that seems marvelous 35 years ago feels elephantine today, and 16mpg can be daunting. Overdrive (optional 1954) desirable, but the early two-speed automatic (from 1953) is, mercifully, seldom seen in Britain. Various factory tuning mods available - including C-type head from April '53.
