Car to be at auction 7/19
Lot No. 165
Registration Date 1961
Make & Model Jaguar MkII 3.8 Automatic
Colour Old English White
Registration Number 9497 KV
Chassis No. P203547BW
Engine size 3,781 cc
Engine No. LB1916-8
Documents V5C; MOT August 2019 with no advisories; 9 old MOTs; invoices; workshop manual; Coys catalogue
Estimate £24,000 - £28,000
First registered in March 1961, this 3.8 Automatic has had just five owners from new, the vendor acquiring it via a Coys auction in 2002 where it was being offered as part of the Mayor Collection in which it had resided since 1989 and had been treated to a “substantial restoration” reputedly at a "five figure cost” as detailed in a work summary on file.
However, our vendor is a fussy type and he soon decided that the car was not up to the standard that he desired. Over the next four years he poured over £10,000 into the car including a bare metal repaint, many new trim parts, rechromed bumpers front and rear plus a brand new automatic gearbox and torque converter which alone cost over £3,700 (invoices on file).
Always kept garaged and used in fine weather only, the car has only clocked up 600 miles in the current 17-year ownership (as evidenced by various old MOTs) and has been regularly serviced by Jaguar specialists Grantham Bridge Motors of Droitwich, regardless of the low mileage covered.
As you can see it remains in good order throughout with sparkling Old English White paintwork, a lovely red leather interior and the desirable power steering option. Starting promptly and running nicely as we moved it around for these photos, it has an MOT until August 2019 with no advisories recorded. Other documentation includes the 2002 Coys catalogue, an original factory workshop manual, many invoices and a 2017 insurance valuation for £38,000. It also retains its original Coventry-issued registration number, 9497 KV, which is transferable and doubtless has a value of its own.
