SUMMARY

UK-delivered Jaguar 2.4-litre MkI, right-hand drive, two owners and c.43,000 miles. Complete with its original valve radio, unused half spats and factory radiator blanket. They're only original once and boy oh boy, is this original.

DESCRIPTION

  • A beautiful UK home-market Jaguar 2.4-litre Saloon (latterly known as the MkI) finished in Warwick Grey with an original red leather interior
  • The original owner purchased the car from Henleys of Edgeware and kept it until 1998 when our lucky vendor stumbled across it
  • Apparently one of the first cars to use the M1 motorway at speeds in excess of 100mph!
  • Has had some minor paint rectification but predominantly a surviving original example, making it very desirable
  • Good history. 30 MOT Certificates and invoices for works carried out over the years
  • Recently taken care of by CMC specialists in Kidderminster (detailed reports in the file) 
  • Supplied with its original valve radio, Owners Manual, the 'half spats' that have never been on the car, full Jaguar tool kit, its original factory radiator blanket, jack and spare wheel
  • Rarely do cars like this with such provenance come to market, so when they do, 'carpe diem'
