Car to be at auction 4/11
www.bonhams.com/eur/auction/19280/lot/343A/

Auction description:
Sale 19280 - RAF Museum, Hendon,Collectors' Motor Cars and Automobilia, 11 Apr 2011
Hendon, RAF Museum
Lot No: 343A
1957 Jaguar Mk1 2.4-Litre Saloon
Registration no. 2894 CR
Chassis no. S906639
Engine no. BB9722-7

Estimate: £14,000 - 16,000, € 16,000 - 18,000

This right-hand drive Jaguar Mk1 saloon was sold new in the UK to a Mr James Robertson, a member of the Diplomatic Service, and accompanied him to Mauritius aboard the SS Dunnottar Castle. When Mr Robertson returned to this country in January 1960 the Jaguar came with him and was registered '2894 CR', its current number. The car remained in Mr Robertson's possession until at least 1970 when it was sold to the second owner, one Margaret Burnham Davis of Blandford Forum.
In March 1994 '2894 CR' was acquired by the third owner, Richard John Davis of Grange-over-Sands, who spent around £16,000 on an engine rebuild, replacing the inner and outer sills, refreshing consumables and fitting a stainless steel exhaust. Service records on file show that between November 1963 and June 1970 the recorded mileage rose from 30,369 to 45,885 miles, while accompanying expired MoTs indicate that between May 1994 and January 2010 the total increased from 50,350 to 54,371 miles. Mr Davis sold the car in February 2010 to the fourth owner, Mr Julian Colclough.
'2894 CR' is finished in its factory colour scheme of black and retains its original and beautifully patinated red leather interior. Arguably one of the most original Jaguar Mk1s surviving, the car is very well presented and comes with its original bill of sale, its original buff logbook, the aforementioned service records/MoTs, sundry restoration invoices, Swansea V5C document and MoT to March 2012.

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?
