Car to be at auction 12/18
www.bonhams.com/auctions/24880/lot/17/

Auction description:
Lot 17
1964 Jaguar Mark 2 3.8-Litre 'Coombs Replica' Sports Saloon
£ 50,000 - 60,000
US$ 64,000 - 77,000
The Bond Street Sale
1 Dec 2018, 14:30 GMT
Registration no. HPA 300C
Chassis no. 233517
*Rebuilt to 'Coombs' specification in the mid/late 1990s
*Manual/overdrive transmission
*Discreetly upgraded
*Present ownership since April 2016
*Offered from a private collection

The superb example offered here has been restored and rebuilt in the style of the racing Mark 2 saloons prepared and entered by Guildford-based Jaguar dealer John Coombs in the early 1960s. A Jaguar/Daimler dating letter on file reveals that chassis number '233517' was originally finished in dark blue with light blue trim (the same as it is today) and was retailed via Henlys. The Jaguar retains its original registration number, 'HPA 300C'.

This car's history is not known prior to 1989 when it was acquired by Mr Ongun of London, to whom the aforementioned letter was addressed. Next owner Mr Vann acquired 'HPA 300C' in 1992 and it was he that commissioned its restoration. The no-expense-spared rebuild was commenced by marque specialists Three Point Four and completed in November 1997 by Scott-Moncrieff (see bills and photographs on file). The car was subsequently re-trimmed by renowned experts Suffolk & Turley. Its specification includes a rebuilt, balanced, and tuned engine; 2" SU carburettors on matching manifolds; front anti-roll bar; Koni shock absorbers; up-rated coil springs to the front suspension; Coombs-type rear wheelarches; Coombs-type chromed wire wheels; Moto-Lita wood-rimmed steering wheel; Pioneer stereo system; and discreet period-style circular mirrors to the window frames.

The Jaguar remained with Mr Vann for the next 20-or-so years before being sold to the current vendor, a prominent private collector, by which time it had covered only some 8,000 miles since the restoration and was still in 'exemplary condition'. While in the vendor's care, 'HPA 300C' has been fastidiously maintained by Red Triangle, as evidenced by their bills on file.

Presented in generally excellent condition, this discreetly upgraded 3.8-litre Mk2 is offered with the 2016 purchase receipt, copies of old V5/V5C documents, and the aforementioned invoices, etc.

Supercar Fest Sale of Iconic and Classic Cars 2024

Lot Number: 202

1964 Jaguar Mk2 3.8-Litre 'Coombs'-Style Sports Saloon

GUIDE PRICE: £30,000 - £40,000

Glorious Dark Blue Mk2 that benefits from an older restoration with performance upgrades and 'Coombs'-style enhancements. Excitingly offered at 'No Reserve'.

Registration Number HPA 700C

MOT Expiry Exempt

Chassis Number 233517

Transmission Manual

Body Colour Opalescent Dark Blue

The classic 3.8-litre Mk2 offered here has been restored and rebuilt in the style of those 1960s John Coombs cars. A Jaguar/Daimler Dating Letter on file reveals that chassis #233517 was originally finished in Jaguar Dark Blue with light blue trim (the same as it is today) and was retailed through Henlys, being first registered as HPA 700C, the registration it wears today.

The car's history is not known prior to 1992 when it was acquired by a Mr Vann and it was he that commissioned its restoration. The no expense spared rebuild was commenced by marque specialists, Three Point Four, and completed in November 1997 by Scott-Moncrieff. Its specification includes a rebuilt, balanced and tuned engine, 2" SU carburettors on matching manifolds, front anti-roll bar, Koni shock absorbers, uprated coil springs at the front, 'Coombs'-type rear wheel arches, 'Coombs'-type chromed wire wheels a Moto-Lita wood-rimmed steering wheel, Pioneer stereo system and discreet period style circular mirrors to the window frames. It's believed that the car was subsequently re-trimmed by renowned experts Suffolk & Turley. 

The Jaguar remained with Mr Vann for the next 20-or-so years before being sold to the owner prior to our vendor who appears to have fastidiously maintained it by the number of Red Triangle bills on file. Included in the fascinating history file are many bills from Scott-Moncrieff for the rebuild and also a photographic record of the restoration, old MOT Certificates, a copy of a sales invoice dated 22nd April 2016 from Runnymede Motor Company and more recent Invoices from Red Triangle for various works on the car during 2016/2017. 

Most recently this car last sold in July 2020 at auction for £51,750 but appears to have never been driven by its new owner (a US-resident) and committed to secure storage. The Jaguar has recently emerged from those four years of storage so an element of recommissioning is to be expected.

Excitingly offered at No Reserve, we encourage your inspection at our Supercar Fest Sale of Iconic and Classic Cars.
