1966 Jaguar C-type (PROTEUS) For Sale

Here is my stunning but nicely patinated example of an aluminium based C-type Jaguar by the sought after specialist PROTEUS in unusual and most attractive Jaguar Moorland Green metallic with cream leather seating and cockpit panelling and green Hardura carpeting. The engine and gearbox are from a 3.8 litre Jaguar E-type giving thrilling and impressive performance. Vented discs withn twin pot calipers at the front, at the rear,standard discs and rear suspension from Mark 2 Jaguar. Wrap around screen, electric fan, separate header tank. Centre tub, firewalls, doors and floors are all in aluminium; bonnet and boot area are in GRP (a Proteus "half and half" version (easily converted to full aluminium which I can help with if required).
The engine has been rebuilt by renowned VSE in Wales and is powered by triple HD8 2" SUs, hence starts on the button and is totally reliable with great oil pressure and cool running. Wheels are by MWS and are correct 16" specification and wearing nearly new Pirelli P6000 (replacing the original Dunlop Racings which do not last for ever!). Spax adjustable dampers all round. Mot to September 2019. Historic Reg (no tax). In short, this Proteus starts, stops and performs as it should in a most exhilarating fashion accomapanied by a very satisfying noise from its (very recent) new stainless steel system! It attracts admiring respect wherever it goes and with its (painted on) race roundels it is hardly for the shy and retiring!
Note mileage of 3000 is since 1987.
