1936 2.5 Litre SS100
This delightful Jaguar is a very well-known car being the example used by Matchbox for their 132nd scale model kit.
Constructed in 1936 the SS100 was registered DLB135 in December and delivered to Ernest Tom Neathercoat of Horsham Sussex who kept it for a little under two years before selling it back to Henlys in 1938. The second owner was an Eric Cyril Boyd Edwards, later to become Lord Chelmer, who kept the car, usually at Bullwood Hall, until October 1947 when it passed to Cyril Abbott, a solicitor from Essex. Mr Abbott entered the Jaguar into a number of rallies at this time, including the JCC Eastbourne Rally of 1948 where he came 4th. The arrival of young children forced Abbott to find alternative transportation and by 1949 it had moved to Edward Curry, a friend of Abbott’s, who lived in Bexley in Kent. Mr Curry was a keen motor racing enthusiast and one of the first marshals at Brands Hatch and he duly pressed DLB135 into service as a track marshal’s car. At this time the car was repainted White from its original Black. After seven years in Bexley the SS100 moved in 1956 to Norfolk when it was bought by David Clarkson, who kept it until 1958 when he traded it in for an XK120. The sixth owner was a Mr Andrew Beer who worked for Phillips Electronics and was based in Surrey. The car moved again in 1960 to Michael Shelley of Essex and it was now to enjoy a period of long-term ownership, staying with Mr Shelley for over 42 years. The most recent owner purchased the SS100 from Mr Shelley in 2002 after which it was thoroughly restored and returned to the road for first time since 1981.
This remarkable car is now offered with an unrivalled history file that documents every owner from new, is accompanied by many period photographs and incredibly includes the original 1936 logbook, the original ‘new style’ 1949 logbook and even the original green-type logbook that replaced it. Completing the set is an original 1937 owner’s manual.
