1939 Jaguar SS100 3.5 Litre
Chassis number 39114
Swiss Registered VD27662
Owned by the current lady owner/driver for the past three decades or so; this is the 4th from last car produced out of 118 total examples ever made. This is a well known car in Swiss Rally circles & is now being sold due to the onset of old age & a bad back from the ladys husband who can no longer get in the car. It shares garage space with a Gullwing Mercedes & a 300 Roadster.
The car comes with a massive history file showing a full restoration to concours condition at the time of purchase. Since then the car has been regularly used with money spent upon it as required to keep it in tip top condition. The owner even went as far as re-tempering the springs back to factory spec to ensure the correct ride height & handling characteristics. Massive maintenance invoices come with the car attesting to the level of care the car has received. It starts instantly & drives exactly as one of these should.
Exterior paint is mid metallic blue in fine order. To the interior are lightly patinated grey leather seats along with gray carpets. The hood is in reportedly good order although we did not put it up when photographing the car as the lady informed us it had not been used during her tenure. The car is showing 87,000 miles from new & is a matching numbers example with original engine number 1076 in situ. All instruments & details are likewise correct as when new.
The car has a current FIVA Passport in category A3 in the name of the current lady owner. There are also pictures of the car in bare aluminium at the time of its restoration. These are rare cars that seldom come to market in 3.5 litre form & even more rarely form such long term careful ownership. It is a very collectable car of museum quality which benefits from having been regularly & carefully used. It is a thing of great beauty.
