This Jaguar S type with its gutsy 3.8 litre straight six dohc, a Swiss version, was delivered to its first owner, a gentleman working in Bangkok at the time. On his return to Switzerland, he took the Jaguar with him and it was first registered here on the 4th June 1974. The next 12 years the car spent mainly in dry storage before being bought by its second owner in 1986. In March 1988 the limousine was sold again and in August of the same year arrived with its fourth owner. In April 1991 finally, the S-type, which by then had covered 140‘000 kilometres arrived in the current ownership. The owner very much enjoyed the car and at the end of 1991 he had the coachwork restored as documented by invoices and vast photographic documentation. At the same time the interior wood veneer was restored, and a partial mechanical restoration was completed. Until August 1992, 53’000 Swiss Francs had been invested in the purchase and restoration work in this beautiful saloon. The car was then occasionally enjoyed during outings and events. It was regularly maintained, and in the years to follow the automatic gearbox was overhauled, the brake servo replaced, the Dynamo overhauled, CV joints on the drive shaft replaced, the power steering restored, and the exhaust system partially replaced. All invoices for repairs and maintenance for over 28‘000 Swiss francs are present. With now roughly 167’000 kilometres driven, the Jaguar is in good to very good condition. The last Swiss Veteran MOT was completed in August 2015, but a knew MOT can be completed with overseeable effort.
