A Mr Ted Clarkson of Preston, Lancashire was the first keeper of the Jaguar MKII 340 `CPP 350F'. In 1973 it was removed from the road for no more than general repairs, but didn't in fact return to use until purchased by a Mr William Winder of Blackpool in 1998, and it was he that instigated a comprehensive two year restoration that included the engine, interior and bodywork. The vendor acquired the Jaguar in 2014 and is offering it as refurbished with bodywork in Dark Green and interior trimmed in Pale Green leather. The finishing touches are the chrome wire wheels shod in whitewall tyres, as per the American specification of the period. The restored 340 has apparently been the star of a number of magazine articles and is now available complete with fitted tow bar, photographs of the restoration, original sales brochure, and collection of old invoices and MOT certificates, plus one valid into August 2018.
