Papers: German historical registration
Beautiful, timelessly classic limousine
In 2018, the consignor acquired the Mk1 from an estate. The previous owner had already extensively restored the Jaguar. The limousine had been registered to the now deceased man since 2006. An old German vehicle registration document with the number of previous owners provides information about the time beforehand. This, and the fact that the speedometer has a km/h scale and a manual gearbox, strongly suggest that the Jaguar could be a German delivery. Since 133 hp is also recorded in the papers, an engine overhaul may have been upgraded to the specification of the 2.4 from the Mk2. The Mk1 impresses from the outside with what is probably the most classic paint color for a Brit and the chrome spoke wheels with 185/15 tires. Inside, the harmonious composition of burl wood, beige upholstery and dark red carpet enchants. The effort put into this cannot be overlooked. All in all, a very desirable example of British automotive tradition.
