Lot No. 285 - 1968 Jaguar S Type

Sold for: £17,050

A very well presented S-Type...The Jaguar S-Type was a major redevelopment of the Mark II. It used a mid-scale version of the Mark X independent rear suspension to replace the MkII's live rear axle and featured longer rear bodywork, among other styling and interior changes. The new model was available with either 3.4 or 3.8-litre XK engines but only in twin carburettor form as the triple carburettor setup would not fit into, what was essentially, still the Mark II engine bay. This S-Type has been the subject of an excellent restoration and the quality of the workmanship is evident on close inspection. As normal the complete bodywork was taken back to bare metal, panels replaced, carefully prepared and professionally painted in Old English White. Mechanically the car was given to acknowledged specialists, XK Engineering in Coventry for a complete engine overhaul and was converted to run on fuel injection and upgraded to a 5-speed gearbox. Their account was in excess of £13,000.The interior was the last area to be upgraded and now displays metres of fresh red leather, new matching carpets and the dashboard and door cappings were prepared and varnished with great effect, however, there are one or two small imperfections. With its wood rim steering wheel, five-speed box and new leather, the interior of this S-Type is a marvellous place to be. A proper restoration, of a proper Jaguar, needs a proper new owner.
