This Kougar Sports is a left-hand-drive example that is said to have been assembled in the late 1970s using the powertrain and running gear from a 1960s Jaguar S-Type. Wearing a blue vinyl wrap and featuring blue and red upholstery, the car is powered by a 3.8-liter inline-six mated to a four-speed manual transmission with overdrive. Additional equipment includes dual SU carburetors, red wire wheels, four-wheel disc brakes, independent suspension, a side-exit exhaust system, Brooklands-style windscreens, latch-and-link lap belts, and a Moto-Lita steering wheel. Acquired by the current owner in 2022, this Kougar Sports is now offered at no reserve by the seller on behalf of the owner with partial service records and a clean Utah title in the owner’s name.
The Kougar Sports model was designed in the 1970s by Englishman Rick Stevens with styling inspired by post-war British sports cars such as the Frazer Nash Le Mans Replica and Healey Silverstone combined with mechanicals sourced from Jaguar S-Type saloons. After an aluminum-bodied prototype was developed in partnership with Dick Crosthwaite and John Gardiner in 1976, Stevens began selling a fiberglass-bodied version of the car via his Sussex company before founding Kougar Cars in 1979. Featuring a proprietary tube-frame chassis, the Kougar was sold in both fully assembled and kit car form in two generations prior to the company changing hands in 1990.
This example’s fiberglass body wears a blue and black vinyl wrap that was installed in June 2014. The louvered hood features a right-side clearance bulge and is secured via leather retention straps. Further exterior details include a bright grille, Lucas headlamps, fender vents, Brooklands-style windscreens, dual side mirrors, and an external fuel filler. The right hood strap is damaged.
The 15” wire wheels were powder coated red under previous ownership. They are secured via silver-finished knock-off spinners and are mounted with Michelin 215/85 LTX M/S2 tires. Quad shock absorbers are installed at the rear, while adjustable Spax units are fitted up front. Stopping power is provided by four-wheel disc brakes with the rears mounted inboard.
The cockpit houses seating for two wrapped in blue vinyl with red door panels and black carpeting underfoot. Additional appointments include latch-and-link lap belts, a dash-mounted rearview mirror, map pockets, and a passenger grab handle. Discoloration is visible on the seating surfaces.
The wood-rimmed Moto-Lita steering wheel shows wear and sits ahead of a crinkle-finish dash that houses Smiths instrumentation including a 140-mph speedometer, a tachometer with an inset clock, and auxiliary gauges. The five-digit odometer shows 97k miles, and total mileage is unknown. The odometer and oil pressure gauge do not work.
Power is provided by a Jaguar 3.8-liter DOHC inline-six equipped with polished valve covers and dual SU carburetors that were overhauled in 2014. An oil change was last performed in 2022, and oil leaks are noted by the seller.
Power is sent to the rear wheels via a four-speed manual gearbox and an overdrive unit. Three-into-one exhaust headers lead to a side-mount muffler and a single exhaust outlet. The steering shaft bushings are worn, per the seller.
Chassis number P1B50379DN is stamped on the Jaguar chassis plate and is listed as the car’s identification number on the Utah title, which describes the car as a 1964 Jaguar Kougar.
