I AM 55 Years old I suffered Stroke 2 years ago In Jan 2010 in an effort to give me something to do I purchased a 1965 LHD 3.8 S-Type Automatic that I knew needed work done. This has been the best therapy I could have asked for, i work on the car for as long or short as I want, and I have really enjoyed it. I am not trying to turn the car into a concur car, just a comfortable reliable second car to run around in at weekends(email)

1965 JAGUAR S-TYPE
6 Cylnder Automatic Sedan
Exterior: Burgandy Interior: Beige
Clear Vehicle Title
This is a true original 1965 3.8 Jaguar S-Type. The Jaguar Heritage Trust has indicated that this is 1 of only 75 early S-Types left on their World Wide Register. I am the 2nd owner of the car and have had it for 6 years. The prior owner bought the car brand new in California in 1965 before retiring to Palm Beach Florida. I was not looking for a show car, but a car I could use on weekends. Although it drives well, I put most of my time into restoring and replacing parts here and there, therefore I did not put many miles on it. I have a folder of receipts that come with the car along with a number of parts, some original and some newer.
The front dash cover, speedo and instrument panel wood needs to be re-laminated. The paint work does need a little attention (it's about an 8 out of 10 from 5ft). The interior leather on the drive side seat has a blemish. The brakes are typical Jaguar, meaning a hard pedal that slows you, rather than stopping on a dime. All gauges and lights work. Engine and gearbox are matching numbers. New tires. Drives well. Car just passed 2017 inspection. Comes with certificate from The Prestige Jaguar Heritage Trust.
