Private Party Or Dealer: Private Party

This Jaguar XKSS re-creation features riveted aluminum bodywork handmade by UK coachbuilder Shapecraft, and was completed by Phil and Oliver Cottrell of Classic Jaguar Replicas in England after being commissioned by the seller in 2017. The car is finished in black and equipped with a wraparound windshield, fixed side screens, and a black mohair top. Power is provided by a 4.2-liter XK inline-six that reportedly features performance internals and is mated to a four-speed manual gearbox with overdrive. Additional equipment includes a hydraulic clutch, a narrowed rear end with a 3.31:1 Salisbury Powr-Lok differential, triple Weber carburetors, four-wheel independent suspension with adjustable coilovers, dual-circuit four-wheel disc brakes, Dunlop-style aluminum peg-drive wheels, a stainless steel side-exit exhaust system, red leather and Hardura upholstery, and a luggage rack. The car was delivered to the seller in Los Angeles in 2019 and subsequently driven to and from an appearance at The Quail: A Motorsports Gathering in Carmel. This XKSS re-creation is offered with a clean California title listing it as a 1962 Jaguar in the seller’s name.

The original XKSS was built in 1957 as a road-going adaptation of Jaguar’s Le Mans-winning D-Type race car, and only 16 of a planned 25 examples were completed due to a fire at the company’s Browns Lane factory. This re-creation features a riveted aluminum monocoque tub and a square-tube steel front frame, which wear aluminum panels that were reportedly formed over wooden bucks patterned from a factory D-Type. The rear body section can be removed to access underlying components.

The body is finished in two-stage black and features a full-width wraparound windshield with Pilkington glass surrounded by a bright frame and flanked by fixed plexiglass side windows. Additional details include a black mohair soft top with an ash bow frame, riveted bonnet louvers, leather hold-down straps, a luggage rack, a Monza-style fuel filler, Lucas PL700 tri-bar headlights and corner markers behind faired covers, and modified XK120 taillights.

Painted Dunlop-style three-piece aluminum wheels measure 16×5.5” up front and 16×6” at the rear, and are secured on peg-drive hubs with chromed brass knock-off spinners. The wheels wear 600- and 650-width Dunlop Racing tires, and a matching 5″ wide spare is housed in the rear compartment. The dual-circuit braking system comprises twin Wilwood master cylinders, a proportioning valve, custom lines, stainless steel flexible hoses, six-piston Fosseway front calipers, slotted and ventilated front discs, and inboard rear discs with parking calipers.

The right-hand-drive cockpit features red Connolly leather upholstery on the seats as well as the body-colored inner doors and dash. Color-keyed Hardura lines the center tunnel, sills, and rear deck, while removable black Wilton carpets cover the floors. The soft top is stowed under a black canvas boot with red piping. Latch-and-link lap belts are provided for both occupants, and a fire extinguisher is situated in the passenger-side footwell.

A wood-rimmed 15” Moto-Lita steering wheel sits ahead of Smiths instrumentation including a 180-mph speedometer, a tachometer with an adjustable redline needle, a combination gauge monitoring coolant temperature and oil pressure, a fuel gauge, and a five-digit odometer showing 2,500 miles. A master ignition switch is concealed within the glovebox along with a power receptacle, while fuel cut-off and overdrive switches are located under the dash.

The 4.2-liter inline-six is said to have been rebuilt by Classic and Modern Engine Services in the UK with Mahle competition pistons, wide-blade connecting rods, a lightened and balanced crankshaft, and a high-capacity oil pump. The gas-flowed cylinder head reportedly features enlarged intake and exhaust ports as well as dual semi-competition camshafts from Rob Beere Racing. A port-matched intake manifold carries triple Weber 45 DCOE carburetors with a triple-arm linkage, and fuel is supplied via a Facet pump with a regulator and inline filter. Cooling is handled by a ProAlloy aluminum radiator, a factory-style header tank, an automatic electric fan, and a high-volume water pump. Additional ancillaries include:

123ignition distributor

Fosseway high-torque starter

High-amperage Dynamator

Aluminum oil cooler

Spin-on oil filter

Custom cloth-covered wiring harness

Dry-sump lookalike components

Original-style non-operating brake fluid drum

Aluminum cover over functional plastic brake fluid reservoirs

Lightened flywheel

12-gallon fuel tank

The stainless steel exhaust system incorporates two custom three-into-one headers, a large-bore silencer, and twin side pipes under a perforated heat shield. The Moss four-speed manual gearbox is said to have been rebuilt and is paired with a quick-engage electric overdrive unit. A hydraulic clutch with a remote bleeder was also added, as was a Denis Welch Motorsport performance release bearing. A narrowed 3.31:1 Jaguar Salisbury Powr-Lok rear end transmits power to the rear wheels. The four-wheel independent suspension features Jaguar A-arms, modified Jaguar rear components, ProTech adjustable coilovers, and polyurethane bushings.

The car is titled using serial number 115797DN, which is shown on the chassis plate and corresponds with a right-hand-drive 1963 Jaguar Mk II. The seller states that fluid changes were performed in the last year.

The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
