A matching numbers example, this superb car was the beneficiary of a comprehensive and detailed restoration by Jaguar specialists. The superior quality of the restoration was rewarded with an AACA award in its first showing. It is finished in Golden Sand Metallic, with a black interior and Everflex soft top. The interior and top have been professionally fitted, the mechanical systems have been restored and serviced and everything functions as new with excellent compression and performance. Everything is fully detailed to show standards, including the engine bay, and the chrome and trim are exceptional as well.
The car is reported to run, drive and handle very well with all systems working correctly. A Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate accompanies the car, confirming the car is finished in its correct color combination and that its numbers match, the way it left the factory. This Roadster is a remarkable example and a superb concours-ready show car that will enhance any collection.
