This is a classic Jaguar that you will feel right at home on road rally's and win accolades at local shows. It is a frame-on restored car that you don't have to be afraid to enjoy yet is right at home in the most exclusive surroundings. The enthusiast who enjoys having something just a touch different than your peers will appreciate that this particular example was first sold in France resulting in some of the details not being the same as cars delivered to England/USA. An example is that the driving light switch is not incorporated into the headlight switch but is a separate switch to the "left" of the steering wheel. It still has it's original kilometer speedometer/odometer. Includes tonneau, boot and side curtians.
This is a lovely, long-term owned car with just one known restoration that has been fastidiously cared for. She looks forward to a future with an equally dedicated enthusiast.
