DVT 505C was manufactured on 17th August 1965 and was supplied new by Byatts of Fenton, Stoke on Trent to its first owner in the Greenwich area of South London. The car was dispatched to Mr Bird of London SE18 on 24th August in Warwick Grey with Red upholstery and is a factory supplied 3.8 Manual with Overdrive model. The Jaguar didn't spend long in London and during the 1970's was located in Poole, Dorset and later moving close by to Bournemouth. Interestingly, many of the best original, honest Jaguar saloons we have come across in over twenty seven years dealing in classic cars spent their early life on the South Coast with retired, careful owners.

During the 1980's and 1990's DVT 505C spent most of its time in the Bristol area and had three lady owners in the City over 21 years from 1980 to 2001. In 2001 the S'Type sold to a long term wner in the North of Scotland where it was cherished, well maintained and nicely detailed over almost sixteen years of ownership. Since 2016 the S Type has been with it's a Lincolnshire based customer whom we supplied the car too. MOT certificates and invoices have been kept with the car showing it has covered almost 10,000 miles since 2001, however very little mileage had been covered in the past couple of years. Invoices until very recent are mainly for upkeep and maintenance and detail replacement parts such as a brake master cylinder, clutch slave cylinder, ignition items, general service items, engine mountings, gearbox mountings and some cosmetic work to include treating and French polishing the wood dashboard. Since late 2016 over £15,000 has been spent on the S Type ensuring it is in excellent mechanical order and capable of reliable, regular use. DVT 505C has been treated to new tyres, front brake calipers, discs and pads, rear brake calipers, discs and pads, handbrake pads, new exhaust manifold gaskets, new core plugs, new wiper motor, new power steering pump, power steering drive and hoses, new HT leads and full service.

DVT 505C retains a high level of originality and it stands correctly with a stunning body with impressive shut lines, gaps and straight panels. Still in its original colour, the Warwick Grey paintwork has a delightful, gleaming finish and chrome work is very good throughout. The car rides on a set of smart chrome wire wheels and tyres, glass and rubbers are all in very good order. The upholstery tells the story of a remarkably original, honest car that has clearly been incredibly well preserved its whole life. The original leather upholstery is in fabulous condition and inside of the car has a strong feel of quality and class. Woodwork is delightful, good quality carpets look excellent and the headlining and door cards are all in very smart order. The boot is nicely presented and it is no surprise to see an excellent spare wheel well and original complete Jaguar tool kit. The engine bay is clean, smart and very original and has been well protected with Black waxoyl.

On the road the S'Type is outstanding and with the benefit of independent rear suspension the car arguably has a better ride than the MKII Jaguar. With power assisted steering, the desirable 3.8 litre engine and four speed all syncro gearbox with overdrive, this S'Type is a true driver's car and will not disappoint. DVT 505C is well maintained, has arrived with us in strong mechanical order having recently had the £15,000 worth of re-commissioning work.
