Lot 243 - 1964 Jaguar S-Type (4.2 litre)
|Odometer reading||54,392 miles|
|Estimate||£12,000 - £15,000|
This Jaguar S-Type was first registered on 16th March 1964, making this an early example of the model that was manufactured from September 1963, until, the arrival of the Jaguar XJ6 in, 1968. Originally powered by the 3.4 litre XK unit, the S-Type now boasts the larger 4.2 litre unit with power steering and is mated to a Jaguar 5-speed gearbox. This S-Type also benefits from an enlarged alloy radiator, Kenlow fan (with manual over-ride), six-branch stainless steel exhaust system, lightweight high torque starter motor, Gaz adjustable shock absorbers and halogen headlights. The braking system has been rebuilt and modified with, the highly regarded, Cooper Craft calipers, a modification that certainly improves the stopping power.
This example is presented with the attractive combination of Old English White coachwork, complemented by the chrome wire wheels, and contrasting red leather interior. A large file includes invoices, old MoT certificates, photographs of an older restoration and an original Jaguar Spare Parts Catalogue.
The vendor acquired this UK registered, righthand drive Jaguar S-Type, in March 2014 and advises that it will arrive at the sale with a fresh MoT test certificate. This is a nicely developed motor car that drives, stops and handles well; a combination that makes for a fast classic Jaguar Saloon, suited for today’s roads and ready for a lucky new owner to enjoy, especially as it is offered with a sensible and tempting estimate.
