Car was at auction in '04
www.coys.co.uk/auctions/lot.php

Auction description:
Coy's Fine Motor Cars & The Jaguar Legend, Chiswick House
Saturday 3rd July 2004
Lot 1157
1961 Jaguar Mk II M/OD
Registration no: 277 BBC
Chassis no: 203688DN
Estimate: £17,000-22,000
Has been the subject of meticulous ground up, bare shell restoration and although its stunning good looks portray its totally original side, underneath the phrase “a wolf in sheep's clothing” would be more appropriate.

The engine, which is mated to an all synchro E-type gearbox with overdrive, has been stripped and re-built with a straight port big valve unleaded cylinder head with D-type cams. Two inch SU carburettors draw the fuel in and a tubular stainless steel free-flow racing exhaust manifold and system help the gases flow out. The suspension has seen a complete overhaul and re-design and features a Rhoddy Harvey-Bailey package. To the front, uprated front springs, dampers and anti-roll bar have been fitted. A new design of coil overshocks with trailing arms and panard rod help locate the rear axle. Braking has seen the fitment of servo assisted 4 pot callipers and steering improved with the fitment of power.

Such was the success of the handling, engine and braking package that on a recent test drive for Jaguar World magazine the respected Jaguar historian, Paul Skilletar wrote: “It showed total disregard for mid-corner bumps and displayed traction whilst accelerating out of a corner that wouldn't have disgraced an Audi Quattro”. Cosmetically the car has received equal attention to detail with the fitment of Coombes style rear arches and before being painted in Carmen red the body received a full wax injection to help preserve it. The interior, beautifully finished in beige leather, also benefits from the subtle concealed fitment of a modern CD system. 277 BBC is arguably the ultimate specification Mk II Jaguar to have, with the benefit of driving like a modern car with superb handling and impressive performance, whilst retaining the character and charm of the original classic Mk II.

Overview
The timeless Jaguar Mk II needs little introduction, anyone with an interest in Jaguar cars has either owned one or longed for one. Such is the popularity of these cars, that today they are restored and improved to much higher standards than when they left the factory.277 BBC is such a car.

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?
