Car was at auction 9/17
www.brightwells.com/classic-motoring/leominster-classic-vintage/leominster-class ...

Auction description:
Lot number 55
Sale Price £13,000
Make & Model Jaguar MkII 240 Manual Overdrive
Registration PHO 458G
Year 1969
Colour
Engine Size 2,433 cc
Chassis No. 1J3987DN
Engine No. YJ-4789-8
Documents V5C; due to have a new MOT; many old MOTs; restoration photos and invoices; large history file

First registered in January 1969, this dark blue example is a late 240 model which had slimline bumpers and an Ambla, rather than leather, interior in order to cut costs (although this particular car actually has leather seats). Making up for these economies was a new straight port head, new inlet manifold and new HS6 SU carbs which raised the power of the 2.4-litre engine from 120bhp to 133bhp with more torque to boot.

As you can see the car is in very smart condition throughout following a major refurbishment in 2013 which included a full body restoration, rebuilt engine and overdrive gearbox, plus much other work detailed in many invoices and photos on file. Since the restoration was completed it has covered less than 5,000 miles and is said to drive as well as it looks.

Due to have a fresh MOT in time for the sale, it comes with a large history file and looks great value at the sensible guide price suggested.

Spam prevention question (must be answered):
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?
