The first owner built the car to look as old and antique as possible. This car has the look and patina of an original Jaguar SS100 and it was painted in period cellulose paint. I bought the car back from him in 2007 and exported it to New Zealand, where I annually organise car tours with many UK Jaguar owners. So I have driven this car for thousands of miles all over both islands every February for 9 years and had more fun and adventures than is recordable here. In nine years of driving it in paradise I ran one wheel bearing, replaced one overdrive switch and suffered one puncture.
Now the car is home and needs a bit of TLC.
I don't usually sell my cars in anything other than immaculate condition, but here I might make an exception. As I have too much work going on at Woodbridge to give someone the opportunity to go through the car and fettle it where necessary.
The paintwork is not immaculate but the car is solid and strong and a testament to the excellent chassis and bodywork. The mechanicals are strong but will be better for its next service.
No rust, but a few slight scrapes from mountant roads.
Excellent value, get yourself ready for 2016.
