This is the third original Jaguar SS100 I have been asked to sell in 20 years.
There are precious few original SS 100 cars that are in an unmolested condition. Many cars have had a chequered history and lack real provenance .
With this car I have the name of the first titled owner, and also the last owner, who had the car in his family since 1963.
This car is quite unusually original , and has a very low mileage. Car has been overseas in a dry climate since 1963 . It has done no more than 2000 miles since then.
After the owner died his family kept the car for a number of years until they recently asked me to sell it.
The car had been carefully looked after and started without any difficulty when we received it at home .
The engine runs sweetly and all mechanicals seem to be working correctly. Over the years in storage the hood and tonneau cover had perished so I have removed them and the car needs a new mohair hood, tonneau and hoodbag. The sidescreens were stored separately and are in excellent condition.
All original Jaguar SS100 had restricted interior body and leg room for taller drivers. SS Jaguars had a diagonal body brace behind the seats. I have rebraced the car with an unseen fitting so that there is more interior room.
The car was retrimmed shortly after WWII. It is all good condition, but the next owner might like to consider a retrim in another colour.We have an excellent lady trimmer who would love to do this work.
The bodywork has a wonderful patina and only a few small period dents . There is no rot and everything looks in very good condition. This SS100 is so original and in such a wonderful overall state that to give it a rebuild would, in my opinion, be like trying to gild a lily.
I hope I look as good when I get to 78 years old.
This is a car that will delight a new owner who appreciates finding and using a car ‘as is’. These cars are increasingly rarely seen at Jaguar days and shows.
For a sporting owner the famous Mille Miglia and many other exclusive events await.
