One of just twenty known survivors of its kind, beautifully restored to a high standard by a marque specialist. 100-points in JCNA judging, including the 2015 Challenge Championship. An elegant and striking motorcar for touring or show.
We are pleased to present this superb SS Jaguar 2 ½ Litre Drophead, one of 20 known survivors from a total production of approximately 270 cars. This gorgeous prewar SS has the distinction of Full Classic status with the Classic Car Club of America, making it eligible for some of the most prestigious and most enjoyable classic car events in the country. According to the Jaguar heritage certificate, chassis 46037 was completed in June 1938, destined for the home market. It was sold through dealer Glovers of Ripon in Yorkshire to a Mrs. A. Sidi, although little else of the early history is documented. The recent history picks up in 2001, when a Jaguar enthusiast, collector, and restorer acquired the car and proceeded to treat it to a ground-up, nut-and-bolt restoration. The project spanned several years, between 2001 and 2005, with detailing, service, and concours prep work continuing through today. The owner selected a striking color combination of two-tone black with French gray side panels and wheels, accented by a gorgeous dark red leather interior. A large binder includes photos and receipts from the restoration, as well as an impressive stack of JCNA Concours judging sheets, spanning at least ten years.
