The Cheshire vendor of the 1959-built and righthand drive Mk1 offered here tells us that the sports saloon was fully restored at a cost of ú25,000 by a Jaguar specialist in the 1990s.
Finished in said to be excellent Old English white with unmarked red leather interior, this Mk1 benefits from being powered by the more desirable 3.4-litre 6-cylinder XK engine, now having the preferred manual gearbox with overdrive and the once optional disc brakes. When entered for this sale, 103,000 miles were displayed on the odometer and, as substantiated by old MOTs on file, this is reckoned to be the total mileage for the car from new.
The history file is claimed to be extensive and includes an inspection report, carried out by the Jaguar Enthusiasts Club only 300 miles ago and rating all aspects of the car which was described as being in A1-plus condition, as well as continuous ownership documentation.
The car was awarded the second best Jaguar saloon award at the 1995 Tatton Park Show and was placed second overall at the Jaguar Drivers Club 40th Anniversary rally at Gawsworth Hall in 1996, since when, the owners says, it has traveled less than 10,000 miles and has been carefully maintained.
