1957 Jaguar MK1 - Similar to Austin Healey for sale
On the road this is a vehicle that exudes a presence and refinement in taste few other cars can match while remaining small in form and agile in function.
As this is a fine wine classic it requires a sophisticated individualistic owner of good taste to appreciate. This is a car that can move off briskly when asked. but is happiest calmly threading through the twisting turning roads of the countryside or cruising the open roads that exist in a still night. I have used this car as such. but recent expeditions have been infrequent given the necessity for me to operate other cars in the collection to keep them in good order and the limitations on how often I can escape my responsibilities to do so. Therefore this lovely Jag is available from my own collection.
I encourage you or your representative to come and view this Jag to verify fit. finish and function.
On history. condition and specification:
Investment grade classic. The original owner passed the Jag onto his son. The restoration was done to the highest standards approximately 10 years ago and it looks fantastic. I am the third owner if you count the son as the second. The car is currently part of my collection and is regularly exercised and all maintenance items have been attended to.
Refinished wood. leather interior fitted to original specifications. carpet replaced (Wilton wool). replaced headliner. Painted in original color with glass out and body stripped of all trim and paint. replaced windshield and seal. replaced rear window seal. new door seals. New tires. new fuel pump this year. carburettors rebuilt this year. spark plug wires. cap rotor and points. fully serviced. freshly rebuilt generator. rebuilt regulator. this year re-cored radiator. new stainless exhaust. new brake booster. new tachometer drive. new speedometer cable. new water pump. new coolant hoses. and brand new SU fuel pump. All parts used were always factory parts. nothing aftermarket.
Engine fully rebuilt around 10 years ago and runs like the day it was done with no fault.
An amazing car that comes with a complete story and extensive documentation back to the initial purchase. This car would be a nice addition to any fine collection or an excellent fit for an owner/driver to use and enjoy regularly or on those rare occasions.
Completely serviced and drives flawlessly. Starts perfectly synchros are perfect. shifts smooth. excellent acceleration and handling. This Jag is a wonderful experience to drive.
This was always a fair weather car it has no rust and it has no filler. There are no patch panels. The entire car is 100% original steel including the floor pan and trunk. No metal repairs were necessary anywhere on the vehicle nor carried out due to the dry nature of the vehicles life and exemplary storage conditions.
The history on this particular car is very complete. It was originally special ordered and purchased at the jaguar factory in England by an American for $3845. 00 or 1858. 00pds. I still have the original British license plate and all documentation including approximately 20 letters of correspondence between the original owner and the factory for parts up to 1975. Also with the car are extensive service invoices from the early sixties through a few years ago. The specification ordered and fitted was SE package. Leather. 2. 4. Manual and Left hand drive as the original owner expected to send the car back to the US when he was done visiting the country. He left the country before the car did. Due to this fact the car was stored near the Docks of Southhampton at the British Railways garage for a period accumulating a bill around 200pds. The MK1 was eventually sent back to the US on the SS United States. He kept this car until his passing in the early nineties and from reading his correspondence with the factory maintained the car to a standard second to none.
This lovely Jag drives out wonderfully. starts with a flip of the key and a push of the button. There will be no disappointments with this car. I am positive the new owner will be most pleased with the condition of this rare example. If any questions arise please feel free to call me at 651. 342. 0928
Also. I can certainly assist with either domestic or international shipping.
