Additional description from above auction:
Lot number 53
Estimate No Reserve
Jaguar MkII 3.4 Manual Overdrive

First registered in January 1962, this Opalescent Grey 3.4 manual overdrive has had six owners from new, the fourth of whom owned it from 1988 right up until 2006. Little is known of the history of the car and the vendor bought it as a non-runner seven years ago after it had been in storage for quite some time (an online check shows that it was last taxed and on the road in 1990).

A compulsive car collector and restorer with numerous projects on the go, he couldn't bear to see such an honest-looking Jaguar languishing unloved and unused and determined to bring it back to life. Quickly got running with little more than a thorough service, fresh fuel and a new battery, it was also treated to a full brake system overhaul (including the handbrake) and a stainless steel exhaust. As the mechanicals were so easily sorted, the vendor decided that the car deserved be improved in other areas too.

The interior was treated to new carpets, a new headlining and a retrim in grey leather (at a cost of some £2,000), while the woodwork was professionally refurbished to a very high standard (costing another £1,250) and all new door rubbers were sourced (although these have yet to be fitted). It was at this point that a chance visit to Brightwells rather threw a spanner in the works because the vendor instantly fell in love with another (far more exotic) project which he just had to buy.

The upshot is that the poor old Jag has now become surplus to requirements and the space it takes up is urgently needed for the French mistress which has so rudely stolen the vendor's affections. With much work done already, it should now be relatively easy to get the Jaguar back on the road and, time permitting, the vendor may even try to get it MOTd before the sale. Being offered here at no reserve, it needs an enthusiastic new owner to reap the benefits of the expenditure to date and apply the finishing touches now required.

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?
