Classic Car Auctions says:

A very early, manual, Series 1 Fixed-head Coupé, 'Barn Find'


  • The engine number corresponds with the Jaguar Heritage Certificate
  • The "Body Type" number we understand is correct
  • The gearbox is not the original one but is the correct 'Moss' type
  • Very early car. Chassis 282. The Chassis Plate has been lost but the number is confirmed
  • Two previous owners -  James Rothwell bought the car new on the 4th April 1962 and owned it until November 1st, 1997. Remained in storage since then
  • A serious project but could be very worthwhile.
