Sellers description:
1959 Jaguar C-Type Replica by Lynx
s/n S824831DN, engine no. LC8991-8, Lynx body no. LC97-05
Indigo Blue with Red Leather Interior

This particular car was built by Lynx, whose cars are highly regarded for their exceptional craftsmanship and faithfulness to the original C-Type. The Lynx C-Type closely mimics the factory cars, with tubular steel chassis wearing hand wheeled aluminum bodywork. The suspension is correct in layout, including the rear axle. A 4-speed Moss gearbox backs the XK twin cam six, in this case, a 3.8 liter unit with triple Weber 45 carburetors. This particular car was built in 1997 for its owner, who was a prominent San Francisco Bay Area collector. He participated intimately in the build of the car, corresponding regularly with Lynx in the United Kingdom during the build. There is a thick file of correspondence included with the car, which includes discussion of the aesthetic details, colors, and mechanical specification. Series III XJ6 disc brakes are used at all four corners, and Koni shocks are in place. The engine is suitably uprated, with enlarged intake valves, matched and balanced pistons, competition connecting rods, and competition specification cylinder head, which was flowed and ported. The compression ratio is 8:1, allowing operation on standard California pump gas, rated at 91 octane using the American rating system. The cooling system is uprated and features Kenlowe electric fan. The clutch is an AP Racing competition clutch and is paired to a lightened flywheel, which was balanced with both the crankshaft and clutch unit. The rear end is a Salisbury unit with limited slip.

The car was used extensively in Lynx's marketing materials, appearing as the feature car in their C-Type brochure, in addition to appearing in print advertisements and it remains on their website today. The car was shipped to its appreciative new owner in 1998 and has remained in the San Francisco Bay Area since then. It was built using a 1959 XK150 as a basis and is titled accordingly, retaining the original registration number of that car, RFY 910, as well as its Swansea V5.

The car remains in excellent overall shape, having been obviously enjoyed but also cared for since it was built. The paintwork and bodywork were done to high standards, with excellent fit and craftsmanship throughout. The paint shows some stone chips on the front, plus the occasional chip around the body and a few cracks in the paint. The paintwork is very lustrous and was performed to high standards. The car is fitted with an original type air intake scoop for the Weber carburetors. The lights, lenses, and glass are excellent and the car is fitted with Brooklands screens as well as a full width aero screen. The wheels are excellent and wear Dunlop racing tires.

The interior is purposeful and period correct in presentation, in addition to being in excellent shape. The car is fully instrumented, including speedometer and counter clockwise-rotating tachometer. The leather upholstery is excellent and the car has full safety including four point harnesses for driver and passenger, kill switch, and fire system. There is also a spare spark plug holder and a handbrake. Other than the seats, the interior is Spartan, with silver frame, body panels, and Hardura trim.

The engine compartment is impressive with the XK powerplant and triple Webers. It is clean throughout with excellent accessibility. The frame and suspension are very clean with a correct vintage appearance, down to the voltage regulators and cloth-covered wiring harness. The engine is nicely detailed but is not a fresh, show-quality restoration in terms of appearance.

The car is an absolute pleasure to drive. It is incredibly well-resolved and provides a remarkable and special experience that will excite the most jaded of car enthusiasts. It is not temperamental in the slightest, starting and operating easily from cold and providing a coherent, solid, and trustworthy experience that is far from being a given in an old car. The engine is well tuned and powerful, in addition to making excellent noise. The throttle response is exceptional. The gearbox operates well with a pleasing mechanical operation and a reassuringly solid feel. The clutch is progressive, easy to modulate, not unduly heavy, and a sweetheart in general, despite being a competition specification unit. The brakes are exceptional, with great stopping power, excellent feel, and a nice firm pedal. The steering is direct and pleasingly quick in its gearing, while the chassis and suspension control the car well and provide excellent feedback without being overwhelming or uncivlized. Overall the car is supremely coherent and inspires the kind of trust that allows the driver to drive in a spirited fashion with confidence.

This is an excellent opportunity to acquire a beautifully wrought car that faithfully captures every meaningful element of experiencing one of the greatest cars of all time. An absolute pleasure to drive and look at, this car was built to the highest standards and represents superb value as well. It comes with extensive documentation from the build, original importation documents, and a copy of the brochure in which it was featured.
