Jaguar launched its first small unitary construction saloon. the 2. 4 litre. in 1955. The new model was Jaguar's first 'small' saloon since the demise of the old 1. 5 litre cars in 1949. Jaguar aimed the new car at the developing executive market and. thanks to its keen pricing. soon found itself swamped with orders. The car's 2483cc twin overhead cam engine provided enough performance (over 100mph) for the day and came with optional overdrive and automatic transmission. For many years. the Mk. I. 2. 4 model has lived in the shadow of the more romantic Mk. II; however. these cars are now rare and are becoming more sought after. The Mk. I also competed successfully in many rallies. touring car. and saloon car races with notable drivers including Stirling Moss. Mike Hawthorn. Tommy Sopwith. and Roy Salvadori.
It is the rarity that has propelled these early cars often beyond their elder brothers and why. in this instance. an extensive and thorough restoration has taken place by marque specialists. Jacob Engineering. at a cost of £40. 00. Not only is this one of the finest Mk. I Jaguars available on the market today but it also represents one of the very earliest built and. indeed. is thought to be a pre-production model. it being number 79 off the production line. The 2. 4 litre engine is mated to a four speed manual gearbox and also features some extremely rare features such as a steel sunroof. rear spats and factory-fitted fog lamps. Receipts exist for all work carried out and an nice history file accompanies the car. Finished in British Racing Green with matching green leather interior. this really is one for the Jaguar collector to show or use. Getting rarer and more expensive every year this is one to put away for the future!
