Jaguar's 1.5-litre Saloon reigned from 1935 to 1949. By 1939 body construction had moved from steel on wood to all-steel and the engine capacity had risen from 1608cc to 1776cc. The sale car was first registered in February of that year, since when it has had just three keepers, including the vendor who has retained it for the last 26 years. It sports distinctive Black over Silver bodywork and is trimmed in a suitably rich shade of Red leather. The vendor informs us that the Jaguar has been laid up for the past few years, but that around £4,000 has been invested in it in the last 150 miles; this funded an overhaul of the Standard-derived four-cylinder engine and four-speed manual gearbox, and a replacement exhaust. She now classes the interior trim as 'good/very original', the bodywork, engine and transmission as 'good', and the paintwork as 'average'. The indicated mileage stands at an unwarranted 68,578 and the sporty-looking SS comes complete with knock-on wire wheels and factory-fitted sunroof.
