Car to be at auction 6/15
Lot number 149
Hammer value £8,200
Description Jaguar MkI 3.4 Manual Overdrive
Registration GSL 258
Engine size 3,400 cc
Chassis No. E008483/S973616DN
Engine No. 7B 5951218
This 1959 manual overdrive model was ordered new with the more powerful 3.4-litre engine option and was the subject of a comprehensive refurbishment in the late '90s. During this restoration, the original engine was swapped for a rebuilt 3.8-litre unit although thankfully its owner had the good sense to keep the original power-plant alongside the car. It is included in the sale, although bidders are advised that it is the responsibility of the new owner to arrange collection from the vendor who is based in Scotland.
Dry stored since 2000, we are advised that although the paintwork now needs attention, the bodywork is essentially very solid and the interior is in very good order too, making this car a nice straightforward project. It has its original handbook, four old MOTs (the earliest from 1971) and its original Buff logbook which shows that not long after it was delivered, it lived in Castle Douglas, South West Scotland.
With just 50 MkI 3.4s thought to remain in the UK, this (potentially) matching numbers car is a rare find and is a strong contender in the 'best potential' category in this sale.
CATALOGUE AMENDMENT: Bidders are advised that the vendor has the original block for this car, not a complete engine.
