Car to be at auction 8/22
1966 Jaguar S-Type
Estimate: £9,000 - 12,000
Chassis number: ALB58758
This S‑Type was assembled in South Africa from parts packages sent from the UK in 1966. Between 1965 and 1967, 504 over‑drive 'S' types were produced and 356 automatic examples. Purchased by a lady doctor in 1977, the car returned to the UK with her in 1980, hence the 'W' registration. It spent thirty years unused and in storage before recent recommissioning which included the removal of the 3.8 engine, upgraded with a 4.2 litre, rebuilt carburettors, replacement radiator, new clutch and water hoses. Other works included replacement power‑steering system, front suspension sub‑frame removed, all bushes cleaned and replaced, ball joint gaiters and bearings. The brake calipers were overhauled and new discs and pads fitted. The rear suspension sub‑frame was removed, universal joints checked or replaced, new bearings, brake discs, pads and rubber mounts. New splined hubs were fitted all round. The car recently has benefited from a new clutch. Fitted with power‑steering, stainless exhaust and chrome wires. £4,500 has been spent since 2019.
