 This beautiful and original right-hand drive Jaguar MKV Drophead is one of those rare and increasingly desirable 3. 5-litre Dropheads that. according to its Heritage Trust certificate. was manufactured on June 29th. 1951 and delivered to the supplying dealer. Attwoods. on July 12th.

The accompanying  original green log book shows it was registered on August 29th of the same year and further history informs us that Richard Place & Co. . chartered accountants from East Grinstead. sold the Jaguar to a Mr K W Holliday of the same town on February 8th 1960. He apparently ran the four-seater until 1975 and then stored it until 1991. It was in September of that year that Mr Claude Levi. also of East Grinstead. acquired 'JJW 591'. Some £22. 00 worth of restoration was carried out in his care - not least a complete retrim. The Jaguar then passed to a Mr J Linton in September 1997. at which point the mileage was said to have totalled 39. 20.

The indicated genuine mileage today still only stands at 44. 73. The car has been used the Drophead for several events in Lincolnshire and Norfolk as well as selected Jaguar Drivers' Club meetings (collecting various awards along the way).
The car is "a pleasure to drive" and has "impeccable" bodywork. Cream paintwork. Red leather trim. original engine and original four-speed manual gearbox. This most charismatic of Jaguars comes complete with sundry tools. span > a huge history file. numerous old MOTs and tax discs.

Offered with a very low reserve for such a rare car with unquestionable investment potential.
