Previous Skopos Motor Museum example

Rare and desirable manual overdrive gearbox

This Mk. X Jaguar is fitted with the very rare and desirable manual overdrive gearbox. It was first registered on 6th September 1963 with the registration AFW 131A. Presented in a distinguished colour combination of metallic bronze with a complementary tan leather interior showing a wonderful patina, Webasto sunroof, electric windows all round and steel wheels. Early in its life the car was re-registered as 6670 VR and, although not much history is available from that time, it is known that the car was originally owned in Dorset before being displayed as an exhibit at the Skopos Motor Museum (now known as the Yorkshire Motor Museum) who indicate a total mileage of just 31,716 in August of 2000.

Early in 2002, the car stayed a short time in the ownership of a collector before being purchased in 2003 from the collector’s widow by the father of our vendor. The car was taken to his estate in Ireland and was registered 63-D-810, where it resided as part of his private collection until 2018 when his son (our vendor) returned the car to the UK under its original registration. This example is in very good order throughout, testament to the care received throughout its ownership, and presents as an original unrestored car boasting copious history from both its time in Ireland and since its return to the UK.

The mystique of the marque is synonymous with being the favoured mode of transportation of the Kray twins and, with its commanding presence and glorious 3.8 litre Jaguar engine, it is not hard to see why. This Mk. X is a great original example with a delightful patina together and is offered with a fresh MoT certificate. You would be hard pushed to find a genuine unrestored car in such good condition today.

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?
