Originally finished in black with grey trim, the SS 100 was sold through Henleys Limited in London to its first owner, with little known of its initial destination. A few SS 100s found their way to the East Coast of the US after WWII and 49026 was no exception. In 1962 or 1963, Robert Wood, the son of a successful Allentown, Pennsylvania, businessman, acquired the vintage sports car from a fellow student while attending Cornell. After graduation, he returned home with the Jaguar, completed a body-off restoration and refinished the car in the handsome color combination of British Racing Green with a dark camel leather interior that it wears today. For the next three decades, the SS 100 remained in Mr. Wood?s care and was kept in climate- controlled storage when not in use. Over the years, many other fascinating cars joined the Wood collection, although his prized Jaguar and a Lagonda were always regarded as two of the favorites. In the late 1990s, Mr. Wood sold the SS 100 to Gary Ford, who planned to campaign the sports car in vintage events. After taking delivery, he decided the Jaguar was far too nice to suffer the risks of racing and, instead, decided to revive its appearance. This resulted in an excellent showing at the Amelia Island Concours d?Elegance where the Jaguar earned a class award. After several years with the car, Mr. Ford sold it to Brian Classic, an English dealer where the previous owner acquired the SS 100 in 2004. To enhance the car?s presentation, the former caretaker reupholstered the seats and door panels with beautiful leather and completed an extensive detailing of the engine compartment. This SS 100 completes its traditional pre-war ensemble with twin Brooklands-style windscreens, a decorated badge bar, painted wire wheels and period-appropriate tires. The Jaguar presents exceptionally well and in recent years it has been very competitive on the concours circuit. At the 2005 Radnor Hunt Concours the Jaguar received a class award and it has since garnered numerous Best in Class, Peoples? Choice and Best in Show awards at leading venues such as the New Hope Auto Show and Santa Fe Concorso. Moreover, this car was crowned the 2007 JCNA National Concours Champion in the pre-war category. Offered with this car are a number of noteworthy items including a Heritage Certificate from the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust, an original 1937 SS owner?s manual, weather equipment and a comprehensive parts manual that covers all 2.5-litre SS and Jaguar models from 1938. In addition, a well-stocked tool kit, featuring a number of original pieces, as well as a distributor cap and rotor, both of which are original NOS Lucas components. The Jaguar delivers strong performance and remains in outstanding operating condition with excellent road manners, compression and oil pressure. Eligible for countless events, historically significant and beautifully designed, these magnificent 100?s are among the most versatile and stylish sports cars of the1930s.
