Car at auction 11/23
www.handh.co.uk/auction/lot/lot-68---1969-jaguar-240/

Auction description:
29th Nov, 2023 Pavilion Gardens | Buxton, Derbyshire
Lot 68
Registration No: RCY 220G
Chassis No: 1J3978DN
MOT: Exempt

Home market car fitted with the preferred four-speed manual plus overdrive transmission
Wonderful period-look with a wood-rimmed steering wheel and painted wire wheels
Accompanied by a reconditioned 4.2 Litre XK DOHC engine should a new owner opt for more performance

Finished in the handsome combination of British Racing Green with Tan leather upholstery, this nicely presented Jaguar 240 rides on a set of body-coloured wire wheels. The late owner was a real Jaguar enthusiast who had spent a lot of time searching for the right 240 before setting off to further improve his pride of joy. The subject of much past restoration work, the paintwork still has a deep lustre and the interior, which is believed to be largely original, is in very good condition with the woodwork having been refinished in the not too distant past. The underside is said to be very solid with new brake pipes and underseal. Kept garaged during the current ownership, 'RCY 220G' currently displays an unwarranted 60,800 miles to its odometer. The car is offered with a current V5, sundry paperwork and a collection of spares, including a fully overhauled engine with its hydraulic hoist, a reconditioned rear axle, a full set of wheels and the original rear spats.

Spam prevention question (must be answered):
The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
