Guide price: £32000 - £36000. •    An early, UK-supplied, right-hand drive, 3.4 Mk1 manual with overdrive 
•    Owned by the first owner from 1957 until 1991. Impressive history 
•    Subject to restoration over 20 years ago, only a few thousand miles since
•    Retains many rare period features such as Bray Heater, Redex Lubrocharger (upper cylinder lubricator), period radio and tool kit
•    A superb Mk1, honest and delightfully original. A rare find in this condition This wonderful Jaguar 3.4 Litre Model (subsequently known as the Mk1) is fitted with a manual gearbox with overdrive and was first registered as UVM 180 to F.H Irving on the 18th July 1957. Remarkably, he was to own the car until 1991 when, at the age of 83, he was advised to sell it. There are a number of tax discs and MOT Certificates in the history file which offers a fascinating insight into the car's life and low mileage of just over 66,000. The file also contains the original handbook and a rare Jaguar 'Periodic Maintenance Voucher' booklet. In 1991, the Jaguar was sold to highly regarded Jaguar engine specialists VSE of Llandrindod Wells.  At this point, the Mk1 was fitted with disc brake and during 1991 the car competed in the Targa Rusticana Road Rally in Wales. In 1993, it was registered for 16 months to Davenport Vernon Jaguar dealers of Milton Keynes before subsequently being sold to the owner previous to our vendor who has had the car for the past 20 years.Soon after purchasing the car in late 1994, the Jaguar was the subject of a major body and mechanical restoration. With a mileage of just 63,000, the interior was mainly still in beautiful, original condition and only required the woodwork re-polishing and a new carpet set. The bodywork was completely stripped, restored and re-painted in Jaguar Carmine Red. All of the brightwork was re-chromed and the car carefully built up to a high standard. The Moss gearbox was stripped and rebuilt, a new stainless steel exhaust system was fitted, and the petrol pump, engine and gearbox mountings, front and rear cross member rubbers, rear springs and all rubber rear mountings and shock absorbers were replaced. The handbrake calipers were overhauled, brake cylinders all replaced, and the car was fitted with power assisted steering. Since that major rebuild 20 years ago, only a few thousand miles have been completed and the car still retains a wonderful level of originality and provenance. Lots of the older features have been retained including the engine ‘Bray Heater', Redex Lubrocharger (upper cylinder lubricator), rear window demister fan, period radio, and complete tool kit. The interior is a true delight, the woodwork is still superb, the original and correct gauges are all in place and the car has a wonderful 'old car' feel. Additionally, UVM 180 retains its correct wide grille, horn grilles, 5" Lucas spot lamps, and original ‘Ace' peaked number plates.  Supplied with the aforementioned history file this is a top quality Mk1 that will reward closer inspection.
