Car was at auction 2/12

Auction description:
Auction Date: 18 February 2012
Lot 261 - 1963 Jaguar Mk.II 3.8 Manual with Overdrive
Registration: 5848BH
Chassis Number: 209167CN
Engine Number: LC39868
Odometer reading: 10,783
Estimate: £34,000- £39,000
Hammer: Not Sold

This Jaguar 3.8 Mk.II is a matching numbers car which has been subject to a very recent, complete cosmetic restoration having all the mechanical components removed and all the old paintwork stripped back to bare metal. The body shell was then repainted in the period Jaguar colour opalescent light silver grey. The mechanical parts have been fully checked and restored as necessary before being re-fitted to the car. The vendor has stated that the original engine was completely restored and blueprinted about twenty years ago and runs like new. Auxiliary parts like the carburettors have been fully reconditioned, new clutch fitted and all the rubber mounts and hoses have been replaced. In 1963 the Jaguar experimental department looked at a new timing chain system which included a new self-adjusting timing chain; this car is one of the very few cars that has the special mounting points for this system. The self-adjusting timing chain was not adopted at this time by Jaguar and did not appear for many years. The interior of this car has also been restored; the red leather, mostly original, has been cleaned and repaired where necessary and re-coloured. The woodwork has been fully restored and re-polished, new picnic tables have been made and fitted to the back of the front seats and the car has new carpets throughout. The original radio has been retained but updated with modern components so it now receives FM radio and has a MP3 port. After the car was completed, it went to the Jaguar Mk.II guru Ken Bell who went right through the car making sure it was exactly as it was when it left the Jaguar factory; work carried out by him included fitting a second new clutch to remove a slight judder, fitting the correct radiator fan cowling, setting up the suspension and Dunlop disc brakes and the tuning of the engine. This car is supplied with a full tool kit, V5C registration document, an MoT test certificate dated until May 2012 and a Jaguar Heritage certificate. The vendor tells us that when Ken's son Peter Bell - who is an expert in this marque in his own right - road tested this car, he stated that it was one of the best Mk.II's that he has ever driven. This is a very rare opportunity to purchase a completely original car, restored to the highest of standards.

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?
