www.bonhams.com/auctions/20931/lot/260/

Auction description:
14 Sep 2013 14:30 BST Chichester,Goodwood
Goodwood Revival
lot number 260
Formerly the property of Gerry Marshall
1959 Jaguar Mk1 3.4-Litre Saloon
Registration no. 220 LPE
Chassis no. 978525DN
Estimate:
£26,000 - 32,000
US$ 40,000 - 50,000
€30,000 - 37,000
Dating from the final year of production, this 3.4-litre Mk1 reputedly was ordered by the then reigning Formula 1 World Champion, Mike Hawthorn, who tragically met his death in a road traffic accident on 22nd January 1959 and never took delivery, though there is no documentary evidence of a Hawthorn connection. The car is said to have been ordered as a duplicate of Mike's first Jaguar Mk1, complete with various factory enhancements. It later passed to motor racing legend, the late Gerry Marshall, its third owner. Although Gerry raced a wide variety of cars and excelled in all of them, as far as is known he only ever used the Jaguar on the road, no doubt relishing the superior performance of what looked like a standard showroom model.

The current (fifth) owner acquired the Mk1 from the Jaguar Museum in Maldon, Essex in March 1994. '220 LPE' has covered circa 15,000 miles from new and while in the vendor's care has been fully serviced regularly and annually MoT'd (up to July 2012). The accompanying extensive history file contains the car's original logbook, assorted correspondence and copies of magazine articles about Gerry Marshall and the Jaguar.

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?
