Auction description:
Lot Number 192

Chassis Number 300497BW
Engine Number ZA2540-8
Odometer reading 45,823 miles
Estimate £20,000 - £25,000
The current owner purchased this fabulous Jaguar on 2nd November 2003 with a recorded mileage of 43,194 miles; the car at the time was not on the road and needed a bit of attention to get through an MoT. Once MoT’d he used the car for just over a year and then decided to either to sell it or restore it. The latter decision was made and the stripping of the Jaguar commenced which he has captured on the two CD discs that are in the history file for the new owner to have as a record. Once the car was stripped, it was sent to the bodyshop to be prepared and painted, while this process was being achieved the woodwork was sent to be restored and all the seats, door cards, rear parcel shelf and front under shelf were sent to be retrimmed. To complete this work, six hides of red leather were used to completely retrim the car which, as can be seen, has turned out to be absolutely stunning. Once the car was returned from painting, the rebuild began with the headlining being completed first and then the refurbished woodwork being pieced back together, firstly around the headlining and then down the pillars, the dashboard was next which took quite a while with regards to the refitting of the clocks and gauges and after this, the rear picnic tables were fitted, therefore, completing this stage. Brand new carpets were fitted which were supplied by BAS of Newport again this was quite fiddly especially around the sills and the centre console but was eventually achieved. All chromework was then refitted to the car which included door handles, bumpers, front and rear lights, roof chrome, new rear boot chrome, new front grille and then bonnet chrome. Once completed the seats were fitted and then all door cards, centre console with a brand-new period radio which has Bluetooth etc, rear parcel shelf and any other areas were finished off with the leather trim. Finally, the boot was retrimmed to match the red interior of the car which gives a much nicer look than the usual Jaguar biscuit colour. After completion of the rebuild, the carburettors were completely restored and a brand-new stainless-steel exhaust system was fitted and the radiator then received a re-core, all new water hoses, water pump, thermostat and a brand-new set of ignition leads and plugs followed by an electronic ignition set to finish off. The present vendor has had the pleasure of owning the vehicle for nearly 20 years of which 14 were restoring this magnificent vehicle and as you can see the car now has a recorded mileage of 45,823 miles, this means the car has only covered 2,629 miles in his ownership. This is a simply stunning example of this British classic and surely must be one of the finest available.

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?
