Following the relative success of the Jaguar XK120s at the 1950
Le Mans 24hr race it was realised that. with minimal engine tuning. br/>a lighter chassis and a lightweight aerodynamically revised
aluminium body shell the car would have a very real chance of
success against its infamous opposition and thus the XK120C or
C-Type was born. The C-Types were completed in time to compete in
the 1951 Le Mans 24hr. At one point in the race the Jaguars held
first. second and third place and it was only mechanical teething
issues that prevented that from being the final result.

With such an icon marque as the Jaguar C-Type it was inevitable
that companies would seek to produce recreations. The highest
quality of these recreations was offered by Proteus. The company
was established in 1985 by Jim Marland in Lancashire and they are
still in existence today.

This beautifully constructed C-Type is presented in royal blue
coachwork with complimentary deep blue interior. Purchased in 1987. br/>the donor car. a 340 Jaguar in fully working order. was the basis
of this recreation. other than the steering rack and coil over
shock absorbers provided by Proteus. the vehicle uses all Jaguar
components and the body has an alloy centre section and GRP nose
and tail section. All components when built were stripped. br/>inspected and if necessary rebuilt. the engine was fully rebuilt
with a 9: 1 compression pistons. lightened flywheel. new valves. br/>valve springs and seats. All suspension components were
bead-blasted. powder-coated and reassembled using new bushes with
the brakes similarly overhauled and resealed alongside new discs
all round. More recently. in 2013. Reeders of Pewsey have given the
car a mechanical and cosmetic re-fresh to the tune of £5. 00 which
included adjusting the carburettors. replacing the water pump. br/>exhaust manifold and gaskets alongside the cosmetic tidy up for the
vendor. Unfortunately. due to a hip operation. the vendor gets to
use his C-Type very little so other than Reeders annually checking
the car and road testing. in the past three years less than 100
miles have been covered.

Described by the vendor as a 10 out of 10 example which is
accompanied by a comprehensive history from the donor car including
handbook and buff green logbook a history file containing old MoT's
test certificates. invoices and with the Proteus build sheet along
with V5 registration document and MoT test certificate valid until
August 2017. this is a beautiful recreation of the much converted
C-type and will undoubtedly turn heads on any road she
