Sellers description:
1959 Tempero Lister-Jaguar Costin Alloy Body Replica Chassis No. S993177BW

Overview: An expert and incredibly authentic recreation of a 1950s sports-racing legend by New Zealand's Tempero Coachworks. Jaguar DOHC 'XK' power with triple carburetors and period style competition exhaust. Sleek, highly engaging, and road-registered, complete with SVRA logbook and many period details. Ready to drive, race, and enjoy!

Specifications: 4.2-liter Jaguar 'XK' DOHC inline six-cylinder engine, triple twin-choke Dell'Orto side-draft carburetors, five-speed manual gearbox, four-wheel independent suspension, and four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes, inboard at rear. Wheelbase: 90.7"

Following Jaguar's withdrawal from "works" racing after 1956, the distinctive Lister-Jaguars picked up where the D-Types left off and kept the Jaguar name at the top echelons of motorsport. Rooted in the family light-engineering firm, British club-racer Brian Lister began work on a car of his own design in 1953 and by 1955, the Lister-Bristol was almost unbeatable in the 2-liter class. The fast-rising Lister team moved up to full-race Jaguar power at the urging of Shell Oil by 1957. Working in collaboration with Edwin "Dick" Barton and engine specialist Don Moore, Lister quickly developed updated and even more successful chassis, with Scott-Brown scoring 11 victories in 1957 alone! Lister-Jaguars were also successful in the USA, with Briggs Cunningham's ace driver Walt Hansgen taking back-to-back SCCA championships in 1958 and 1959. Other famous Lister customers included Ecurie Ecosse and Equipe Nationale Belge.

The Lister-Jaguar "Knobbly," so-named for its wheel-hugging bodylines, propelled Scott-Brown to further victories for 1958, with his main rivals also driving Listers - a trend that continued until Archie Scott-Brown perished at Spa that year. Top drivers including Stirling Moss and Hansgen stepped into the void, winning the 1958 British Grand Prix at Silverstone for Lister. For 1959, the Listers were updated with sleek new bodywork designed by Frank Costin, a former de Havilland and Lotus aerodynamicist, with the resulting cars known as Lister Costins. While the 1959 season's endurance events proved fruitless, the Lister piloted by Ivor Bueb and Bruce Halford came close to victory at Le Mans, running as high as fourth and on the march until they retired with engine failure. Despite their brilliant success, the Listers were soon outclassed by the new mid-engine Cooper Monacos in 1959. The death of Ivor Bueb (in another make of car) that year convinced Brian Lister to halt his racing activities. Nonetheless, Lister-Jaguars were raced to great effect by privateers through the 1960s.

While few Lister-Jaguars and fewer Jaguar-powered Lister Costins were built, their brilliant success drove their eventual resurgence in historic motor racing. Since the 1980s, Tempero Coachworks of Oamaru, New Zealand, have answered the call with exceptionally high-quality Lister replicas, along with other 1950s racing icons. Built with Tempero's world- renowned quality and authenticity, this highly engaging Lister Costin marks an outstanding find as quite possibly the sole example of its kind. Built in 1985, it was raced in numerous hill climbs and sprint races and then it was sold to the United States and spent some time in Las Vegas' Imperial Palace collection. Subsequently, the car was acquired by noted classic Jaguar authority Terry Larson and it was titled in his name as a "1959 Jaguar." Since acquisition by the "current custodian" in early 2013, the car's sleek and highly authentic all-alloy body was repainted in British Racing Green with a white racing stripe. Strong power is delivered by a 4.2-liter, DOHC 'XK' engine mounting Dell'Orto sidedraft carburetors, mated to a 5-speed, aluminum-case gearbox with tri-plate Tilton clutch. Suspension is fully independent with four-wheel disc brakes, inboard at the rear. Great period touches include a center-mount polished fuel-filler cap, covered headlamps, Smiths and Lucas instruments, a beautiful wood-rimmed steering wheel with Jaguar horn button, and competition-style 6-into-2 exhaust exiting underneath the passenger door. Other notables include a three-point roll bar and beautifully polished Dunlop "knock off" wheels, plus a spare and lug wrench.

Very exciting, this excellent Lister-Jaguar Costin recreation is understood to be quite easy to drive and fully road-legal, An SVRA racing logbook also accompanies this very fine vehicle. Reported to be light and fast with a timeless vintage racing look and feel, this Lister Costin recreation by Tempero is titled as a "1959 Jaguar" in California and eligible for a wide variety of today's top classic events, tours, and rallies, representing great authenticity and immense value at a very attractive price point!

It is believed that this is the only one created by Tempero and cost to duplicate would be in excess of $250,000!
