THIS GENUINE EXAMPLE IS THE MOST DESIRABLE INCARNATION OF THE FASTEST SALOON CAR EVER PRODUCED AT ITS LAUNCH IN 1959.
ALMOST 60 YEARS LATER, ITS PERFORMANCE IS STILL IMPRESSIVE WITH A 0-60 TIME OF 8. 6 SECS. BEARING IN MIND THE WEIGHT OF THESE CARS THAT IS NO MEAN FEAT!

THIS CAR HAS NOT BEEN THE SUBJECT OF A £50, 000 PLUS RESTORATION FOR THE SIMPLE REASON THAT IT HAS NEVER NEEDED ONE!
CHERISHED BY ITS 1ST OWNER FOR 22 YEARS, DURING WHICH TIME HE COVERED SOME 52, 000 MILES (LETTER OF CONFIRMATION ON FILE), IT PASSED TO THE 2ND OWNER, THE WIFE OF A FRIEND IN 1984, IN WHOSE HANDS IT WOULD COVER A FURTHER 18, 000 MILES OVER THE NEXT 36 YEARS ON HIGH DAYS AND HOLIDAYS, BEING MAINTAINED THROUGHOUT THE PERIOD BY HER ENGINEER HUSBAND TO A STANDARD RARELY SEEN.

THE PAINTWORK WAS REFRESHED SOME 25 YEARS AGO AND SHOWS ABSOLUTELY NO SIGNS OF ANY DETERIORATION. THE UNDERSIDE OF THE CAR IS IN A CONDITION WHICH NEEDS TO BE SEEN TO BE BELIEVED AND THE INTERIOR HAS BEEN RECENTLY RETRIMMED IN THE ORIGINAL COLOUR WITH MATERIALS SUPPLIED BY ALDRIDGE TRIMMING DUE TO SOME MINOR CRACKING OF THE LEATHER. THE RECLINING FRONT SEATS WERE A FACTORY OPTION AND FITTED FROM NEW ALONG WITH REAR PICNIC TABLES.

THE ENGINE WAS COMPLETELY REBUILT ONLY 4, 000 MILES AGO (INVOICE ON FILE) AND PERFORMS PERFECTLY - STRONG, RESPONSIVE AND QUIET IN OPERATION. TO IMPROVE DRIVEABILITY WITH MINIMAL COMPROMISE ON ORIGINALITY, A LATER ('65 ON) JAGUAR ALL SYNCHRO OVERDRIVE GEARBOX (REBUILT) HAS BEEN FITTED TOGETHER WITH JAGUAR POWER STEERING FROM THE SAME PERIOD. SHE IS NOW EASILY MANOUVERABLE AT LOW SPEEDS WHILST THE STEERING IS NOT UNDULY LIGHT AT HIGH SPEED. A SET OF CHROME WIRE WHEELS COMPLETE THE PACKAGE AND THE ORIGINAL STEEL WHEELS AND ACE WHEEL TRIMS ARE INCLUDED IN THE SALE.

IT IS DIFFICULT TO OVERSTATE THE OVERALL CONDITION OF THIS FINE SPECIMEN, CHERISHED OVER 58 YEARS BY ONLY 2 OWNERS, WITH VERY LOW, GENUINE MILEAGE AND DESIRABLE PERIOD UPGRADES. AN ORIGINAL UK SUPPLIED 3. 8 MANUAL CAR WITH MATCHING CHASSIS AND ENGINE NUMBERS AND ORIGINAL SOUTHAMPTON NUMBER PLATE. THOSE OF YOU WHO FOLLOW THE MARKET WILL BE AWARE OF A SIMILAR CAR IN THE SAME LIVERY AND WITHOUT THE DESIRABLE UPGRADES WHICH MADE SOME £70, 000 AT A LOCAL AUCTION ONLY LAST YEAR!

SUPPLIED WITH HERITAGE CERTIFICATE, AFOREMENTIONED LETTER DATED 1984 CONFIRMING MILEAGE, A SELECTION OF INVOICES AND MOT'S, HANDBOOKS AND ORIGINAL TOOLBOX, TOGETHER WITH A COPY OF THE SOUTHAMPTON ECHO FROM AUGUST 1963 WHICH WAS FOUND BEHIND ONE OF THE PANELS WHEN THE RETRIM TOOK PLACE!!

VIEWING BY APPOINTMENT WITH RAMP INSPECTION AVAILABLE; FREE DELIVERY WITHIN 200 MILES (UK MAINLAND); FRESH MOT TEST
