1939 SS Jaguar 1.5 Saloon

Nice entry level SS Jaguar coming with Buff log book and documents dating from the '60s

Dating from 1939, this attractive SS Jaguar 1.5 Saloon represents affordable entry to this marque. It comes with little history bar current V5C and early Buff log book showing a Mrs Muriel Shepherd of Portchester as the then owner, followed by a Mr Ward who resided on the Isle of Wight. Further documents on file include correspondence from the early 1960s between FJ ward Esq of Hampshire and various motor factors and parts suppliers regarding prices and details or various parts for the car. We also note an undated bill of sale for the car for £15, with a signed postage stamp making it a legal document at the time along with some period Insurance renewal notices from 1962 (premium of £9.50!) and road vehicle license from the Isle of Wight County Council also dated sept 1961 In addition to the above there is a rather nice Period Fina lubrication service booklet, although unstamped, 2 MOT test certificates dated September 1960 and May 1963 plus original Instruction manual and more modern DVD of parts and service manuals for SS & Jaguar saloon. The car is understood to run well, presenting well in light sage green with super black wire wheels and Olive green leather interior in a nicely patinated state. We are given to understand from the vendor that the car was restored in Europe prior to import back to the UK in August 1998, although there is nothing on file to support this. Make what you will of the lack of history, but the car looks well and with some fettling would no doubt make a very fine car indeed.
