1984 SS Jaguar Replica
Only 17,800 miles from build by Classic Roadsters of Dakota; Ford Mustang 2.8 V6 engine and auto box; GRP body; SS looks at an affordable price!
Classic Roadsters Ltd of Fargo, North Dakota, began making kit cars in 1978, perhaps their best-known model being the Sebring, a Healey 3000 replica. They also made the Marlene (Mercedes SSK), the Duchess (MG TD) and the Duke (SS100 Jaguar), all with GRP bodies and a wide range of mechanical underpinnings. Over 5,000 kits were sold before the firm changed hands in the 1990s.
This Duke SS100 Replica was built in 1984 and we are told that the running gear comes from a Ford Mustang II with a 2.8 V6 engine and automatic transmission. We are also told that the 17,800 miles on the odometer is the genuine mileage covered from build. Riding on wire wheels shod with whitewall tyres, it also has dual spare wheels and tyres mounted either side of the bonnet. Finished in ivory with brown wings, it has brown leather seats and a matching brown soft top with side screens.
Not yet UK registered, it comes with a US Certificate of Title and a NOVA reference showing that all duties have been paid so getting a V5C should be straightforward using the requisite DVLA form.
Appearing to be in generally good order throughout, it started promptly and ran nicely as we moved it around for these photos. With all the looks of an SS100 but at a fraction of the price, it is sure to turn heads wherever it goes and will no doubt fool most of the people most of the time.
