Auction description:

First Registered 1957
Registration No 711XUB
Engine No BG3179-8
Chassis No S908483
MOT Jan 2008

This 1957 example has the 2.4 XK engine, which is mated to a four speed, manual gearbox. The car left on the Browns Lane production line on the 23rd September 1957 and on the 10th October it was shipped to Brysons Jaguar Dealership in Australia, where it remained for most of its life.

Once repatriated to the UK, the car was subjected to a bare metal repaint, of the rust free shell and a full retrim of the interior. Using Connolly hides, original specification headlining, carpets and door cards, the interior was finished to better than new specification. The engine is said to have been reconditioned and uprated and is equipped with a 6 branch, tubular extraction manifold.

The car now resides back in Coventry and has featured in the 50th Anniversary of the MKI at Jaguar Browns Lane in 2005, when it was awarded a Concours prize. The car was featured in Jaguar Heritage magazine, the JDC magazine and the Jaguar Enthusiasts magazine.

Finished in Jaguar Racing Green with sage green hide, the car is described as being a condition one example.

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?
