PLEASE READ ENTIRE AD PRIOR TO BIDDING***
I am selling my 1961 Jaguar MK 9 Saloon. I purchased the car from the original owner over 20 years ago. The car was originally purchased new in France while the original owner was on vacation there. He used the car as transportation while on vacation and had the car shipped home with him to the US. The car is heavily documented (as you can see in the photos). I have the original owners manual. original Jaguar Factory Warranty document. Original maintenance book. Original Lube chart. Jaguar dealer issued map of France. and numerous registrations. and maintenance documents. The car even has the original French Lic. plate. and Jaguar French ID tag under the hood (see photo)
When I purchased the car it had been parked in a garage for many years. The car appears to be VERY complete. I removed the fuel tanks to repair a few small pin holes and the radiator to have it re cored but due to my busy work schedule and later health issues. removing them was as far as I got on the restoration. The car has not been on the road in 25+ years. I do not know the mechanical condition of the motor other than it spins freely and is not sized. I have the title for the car in hand and it is currently reistered in california as non-op.
There were just over 900 of these cars produced in 1961 in left hand drive so its a fairly rare car. I have attached a photo of the NADA price guide on the car showing its value between $37. 00 and $70. 00 depending on condition. And given documentation and history with this car. I'm sure it would fetch a good deal more than that.
The interior is all original and will need to be replaced as you can see in the photos. The paint is in ok shape and would be very respectable as a "driver". The only rust I have found on the car is a small hole in the firewall. behind the battery tray (see photo).
*NOTE: I was asked by an ebay watcher if the boot (trunk) of the car was rust free. I had not looked in the trunk in many years. So after inspecting it I have found that there is some surface rust on the floor of the trunk. No cancer or holes but there is some surface rust present.
The car is located in Norco. Ca for viewing and pick up. I will not ship the car anywhere. it is for local pick up only and payment from the winning bidder will be made to me in cash upon pick up!
