This is a very original unmolested Jaguar which has been owned by father and son since 1970 until last year when I bought the car.

Prior to that the car had been in the ownership of Ken Baker. keen Jaguar enthusiast & engineer. ho won a great many races in his E type in the Sixties.

Originally a 3. 4 MOD the original power unit was upgraded with a 3. 8 block  retaining the original cylinder head. This 3. 8 engine was rebuilt at 74. 46 miles. The car has now covered 75. 17 miles.

Mechanically the car is sweet. The engine pulls like a train. he gearbox is good & the overdrive works perfectly.

Since I have owned the car the front suspension has been overhauled with many new ball joints. ounts. ushes etc.

The body is very solid & amazingly original. ery little evidence of any welding anywhere. I photographed the floorpans last year when I replaced the carpets.

None of the usual rust bubbling or filler at the door or wing bottoms & no ragged or filled wheelarch edges.

The woodwork is all good. s is the leather.

I have a Jaguar heritage certificate for the car.

The current MOT expires in July but I will  get a fresh one for the new owner. The Historic (free) tax runs until Dec 31st 2013.   

The June 2013 Practical Classics magazine has a 4 page feature on the S Type saying they are "superior to the Jaguar Mk2 in various ways" with "better handling thanks to the fitment of the MkX's independent rear suspension". Their price check valuation for these cars is - Mint £15. 00-£25. 00. Average £7000-£15. 00.

Viewing is highly recommended to assess the condition of my car for yourself. Any inspection is welcome.

Anyone with a feedback score of less than 10 should ring me first to verify your bid. therwise I will cancel the bid.

Winning bidder should contct me within 24 hours of auction ending. Balance to be paid & car to be collected within 7 days of end of auction.  

Feel free to ring me anytime on 07836 636901 to arrange a viewing or for more information.

Thankyou.  

I am reluctant to sell this lovely car. ut then I have too many toys & not enough space or time.
