Car to be at auction 6/12

Auction description:

Collectors' Motorcars
Auction 20165
427•
Subject of an over $100,000 restoration
1957 Jaguar MkI Saloon
Chassis no. S986121BW
Engine no. KE25618
Body no. E002497

This Mk1 has been the fortunate recipient of an exceptionally well documented restoration with receipts total over $100,000. Purchased by the vendor on April 24, 1999 for $2,200, the car was brought to Vantage Motors, Inc of Stamford, CT for a complete, concours restoration. As detailed in the meticulously kept records, every bit of the car was gone over, refurbished or replaced, and made to operate like new. Any rust or prior repairs were cut out and refinished in metal. The 3.4-liter motor was completely disassembled, refurbished, and rebuilt. The interior was completely retrimmed in luxurious, red Connolly leather hides with Wilton wool carpeting and West of England wool broadcloth headliner at a cost of over $14,000.

Whilst completing the restoration, some select and subtle improvements were carried out as well. Mechanically, the original 3-speed Borg Warner automatic was replaced with a correct 4-speed manual with overdrive and the original drum brakes were replaced with correct four-wheel discs, both upgrades that will no doubt greatly enhance the driving experience. Additionally, an $1100 stereo with AM/FM radio and CD-changer has been artfully hidden to provide modern tunes without spoiling the appearance of the interior.

Completed in 2001, the Jag has been carefully stored under its fitted cloth cover and driven a mere 2,000 miles since restoration. In a ride with the vendor, the cataloger found the car to be very well turned out, no doubt looking as good as the day it left the restoration shop. The car ran very well on our drive, operating smoothly and accelerating swiftly--it truly embodied Sir Lyons motto of Grace, Pace and Space.

It is rare to find such an incredibly well presented Mk1 as restorations of this caliber are usually dedicated to its less practical cousin, the XK140. Additionally, every bit of documentation produced since the current vendor's 2001 acquisition--down to the checks used to purchase the car and pay for the work--has been retained and filed. One of the nicest Mk1s in the world, to be sure, it represents the perfect opportunity to buy an essentially brand new, turnkey 55 year old Jaguar!
Estimate:
US$ 35,000 - 45,00

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?
