Known History

This very elegant S-Type in silver-grey with a red leather interior was produced in September 1965 and registered in December of the same year. A Jaguar-Daimler Trust certificate confirms the car’s « matching-numbers » and the original colour combination as described above. The meticulous care lavished on this Jaguar is documented with sundry maintenance- and overhaul records from the last 13 years. Besides normal maintenance the car was treated to a radiator and brake caliper overhaul, a replacement of the water pump as well as the shock absorbers and a professional freshening-up of the leather interior. The engine runs well and shows equal compression on all cylinders. The 4-speed gearbox with overdrive performs impaccably. The Jaguar was driven enthusiastically by its owner during the past 6 years, a bit too enthusiastically in fact, resulting in a revocation of the Veteran status by the authorities. (In six years 24’000km had been driven instead of the 18’000km allowed in order to keep this status!….rules are rules….). This caused understandable grief with the car’s owner and he lost interest in his S-Type. A new owner should have no problems reinstating the Veteran status with the authorities and start with a clean slate once more. The last Veteran MOT had been completed in June 2014.
