Car offered at:

Seller's description:

Mileage: 55,591

This stunning matching numbers example was 1st sold in January of 1936 to Richard Taylor of British Motors in NY. It next appeared in 1957, bought by Al “Bud” Lewin of Creve Coeur, Missouri, but it was Black with a Red interior then. In December of 1959, Al donated it to the National Museum of Transport, where it remained until 2000. In 2000, after 41 years on display, the museum started a restoration that was not completed due to lack of funding. The car had been stripped, and its parts stored in boxes. The museum auctioned the car off in September 2005 to Thoroughbred Motors of Sarasota, Florida, who kept it as it was until May of 2013 when it was acquired by its latest caretaker, C.S. After he purchased this rare diamond in the rough, C.S. had everything shipped to Classic European, so it could begin its full concours restoration. After two long years, Classic European completed the restoration in 2015. Both the owner and the restoration company worked together to make sure this example was both accurate in originality and had excellent quality in its craftsmanship. Painstaking research had been undertaken, in consultation with experts around the world, in order to validate and authenticate the originality and concours details. During this time, it was restored back to its original birth colors of Birch Grey with a Red interior, and a black top.

A few of the many outstanding features of the SS-1 Tourers include the split rear seats, the luxurious rear leather armrest, the “Sunburst” interior door panels and the fully chromed wheels which are painted body color leaving only the outer rim showing the plating.

It is one of seven known survivors of the seventeen tourers made at the end of 1935 that were completed with the 1936 front grille and badging. This work of art comes with a Jaguar Trust Heritage Certificate detailing its heritage, concours tools, a car cover, battery maintainer, two instruction books, copies of prior ownership registration, photos of restoration, “SS1 & SSII Cars” book by Allan Crouch, “Jaguar SS Cars 1931-1937” book, starting instructions, museum plaque, side curtains, soft top boot cover, judging sheets, copies of the CJA news and technical bulletin dated 10/17, Jaguar Tracks from October 2015, the original 1935 black plate, extra photos, one key, and the trophies it has won.

A highly collectible model with providence, and detailed history, this SS1 is for the discerning collector who demands the best of the best. Ready to be shown and admired, as there are no disappointments.
