Car description:
This car was restored with no expense spared and since then has formed part of an important collection of Jaguar cars. During which time it has covered only minimal mileage.

It is the desirable SE model and comes with a Jaguar Heritage Trust certificate, attesting to its authenticity. The car was supplied new by Henleys of London.

A matching numbers car, it is in quite perfect order. The restoration was a nut and bolt affair, making it a virtually new car.

The exterior is finished in flawless bright red, whist the interior has black leather, carpets and mohair hood. Under the bonnet, is the twin carb 3.4 litre unit. The car starts and runs perfectly, giving the driver some idea of the resultant sensation, which was caused by the cars release onto a hitherto unsuspecting public.

The car was restored, at eye watering expense, by a Rover dealer principal in 2002.

Being a 1954 model it is one of only 24 RHD roadsters built in that year, making it a rare car indeed.

The car was built as a RHD model,and is believed to have covered just 21,000 miles from new. It includes the rare close ratio gearbox, 2" sand cast carburettors and the original rear luggage carrier.

Spam prevention question (must be answered):
The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
