This stylish sports saloon is believed to be 1 of 6 RHD cars to be produced by the coach builder James Young. Finished in Tudor Grey over Oxford Blue with Beige hide piped in dark blue with beige wool head lining and carpets with traditional burr walnut veneers.

This car is offered with a comprehensive history file having copies of the original build sheets and the cars early history from the supplying dealer Jack Barclay, through to more recent service history with ourselves.

The chassis was built in 1956 and James Young completed the coach work in 1958, then finished in Velvet Green with Grey Hide. Jack Barclay supplied the vehicle to its first owner; Arthur Holmes of Harrogate. Jack Barclay sold it twice again, the last time in 1963 and sometime after that, the car was exported to the USA. It was then returned to the UK around 1989/1990 and intrusted to a leading specialist for restoration. From the history file and also inspection of the car we can see they completed a comprehensive restoration to a high standard with the addition of air conditioning and refinishing it in the current colour scheme, resulting in its excellent condition today.

We note from the history file the restoration work was completed with a speedometer reading of 78,758 miles, now recording 90,886 so 12,128 since the restoration that including the engine rebuild.
