1934 SS1 (Jaguar)

Re-bodied to Tourer Style

Engine: 247440

Chassis: 3446

Lot closed - unsold

Estimate: $200,000 - $300,000

It is presumed that this car was initially located in the UK before being registered in New Zealand on October 11, 1979, under the registration number JL661. It is likely that this represents its second registration, as there is an understanding that the vehicle resided with the late Brian Jackson at his ‘museum’ on Marua Road, Ellerslie, for some time. However, it remains unclear whether he was the original importer into New Zealand. What is known is that the vendor’s family acquired it from Mr. John Stringer, who lived in Devonport at the time.

While under Mr. Stringer’s care, the car, originally a coupĂ©, underwent a skilfully executed transformation into a tourer, with the boot now opening in the opposite direction of its original design. This modification was made to enhance accessibility while preserving the car’s overall aesthetics.

A Production Record Trace Certificate, numbered 65169 and obtained from the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust, confirms that this vehicle was manufactured on 5 April 1934, in right-hand drive (RHD) configuration. It was one of 2503 vehicles of its kind produced. On 24 April of the same year, it was dispatched to Henlys of London for sale. Unfortunately, there is limited information available regarding its early history, including the reason for replacing its likely factory-fitted 2.1 litre engine with one from an SS100, which remains in place to this day.

The absence of early history has posed challenges in establishing the car’s provenance and originality, despite some clarifications from Jaguar Daimler Heritage. However, it is evident that the vehicle is in excellent condition, with changes that have arguably enhanced its character and made it a more user-friendly and appealing example of this now rare automobile, as well as a piece of Jaguar’s history.

The vehicle will be sold unregistered and unwarranted.

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?
