Car to be at auction 8/23
www.iconicauctioneers.com/1961-jaguar-mark-ix-rec12742-1-silverston-0823

Auction description:
Lot Number 698
JAGUAR MARK IX
Registration Number YBO 123
Chassis Number 775923BW
Engine Number NE1994-8
Transmission Manual
Body Colour Claret
Christened ‘Yobbo’ (Reg. YBO 123), although hardly that, the glorious Mk IX on offer here was professionally restored at no expense-spared by a well-known restorer, and care was taken to ensure great accuracy down to the last detail. The interior is lavish with rich leather, immaculate woodwork and extra thick rugs offering the fortunate occupants first-class travel. Tray tables, a drinks cabinet and a convenient arm rest satisfy the requirements of rear-seat passengers, whilst the driver can enjoy the impressive handling and power from the sonorous XK straight-six.

The car was subsequently sold to another well-known Jaguar enthusiast and a new chapter in Yobbo’s life began. Its new custodian initially spent quite some time on the mechanics, improving the handling, braking etc. A radiator cooling fan was fitted, and a CD-player was installed, discreetly hidden from view. When all was well, he started to enjoy the car, although quite sparingly. In 2013, Yobbo took part in the JEC London to Brighton run and was awarded the top prize of the 'Jaguar most people would like to take home'. Yobbo then repeated the run in 2014 and 2015 and, unbelievably, won the same award both years also – a hat-trick which had never been achieved before!

In 2015, Yobbo was entered in the Mk VII, VIII and IX Class at the main JDC Concours and, what do you know, it won convincingly, which qualified it for the ‘Champion of Champions’ class on the JDC Stand at the NEC. Unfortunately, the car was involved in an isolated incident causing some superficial damage needing repair and some paint rectification, which meant missing the NEC.

In 2016, Yobbo was back to her most beautiful self in time for the main JDC day, and happily won the class for the second year running. This time, it made it to the NEC on the JDC stand and won the Jaguar Mk VII,VIII and IX Class of the ‘Champion of Champions’. It was the only car on the stand that drove under its own steam to and from the exhibition.

Yobbo has attended other smaller events often winning awards, but these are too numerous to list! Very few cars in this price range come close to the levels of comfort, style and performance that comes with this restored Mk IX and, with the minimum amount of fettling, it could be back on the JDC stand once again, receiving the top award.

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?
