Description

According to the Jaguar Heritage Certificate that accompanies this 1966 (D Reg) Jaguar S Type 3.4 Manual/Overdrive it was originally supplied as a Right-Hand drive car by Henlys of London in July 1966; finished in Silver Grey with Red interior the same colour scheme that it sports today. From the papers that we have we understand that in January 1994 the car was exported to New Zealand where it remained until last year. The odometer has 47,000 miles recorded which could well be correct judging by it the condition and originality of this car.
This Jaguar is in great mechanical and structural shape, it would appear to be super original, has never been restored and it is as solid as a rock with great panel gaps. The next steps for this car are very much down to the next owner. In our opinion there are two options. Firstly, because it drives like a dream and there are no mechanical works needed, (a new exhaust and brakes have recently been fitted) the car could be used as is in the very original guise.
The alternative would be to respray the car (approx £7000 which we can do) to create a stunning example.
It is a cracking base from which to create a best of breed S-Type without all the costly Tin Worm removal that would typically be a killer on a project like this. What’s more you will know exactly what you have when the work is done. The best ingredients are already here: a super straight car, great mechanicals, original colours, right hand drive and believed matching numbers, (although we do have to verify this).
So, it is all in the eyes of the beholder; “Old School” or Concours potential classic Jaguar. We personally would leave the car exactly as it is however, whatever is decided, we are happy to advise and help you to maximise your ownership pleasure.
