‘SLL 346’ was purchased new by the original new owner in 1956 and has remained in the family’s possession until being sold at Bonham’s Goodwood Auction in 2017. It is believed that the Jaguar was purchased from Henlys of Camden Town, London. The Original owner loved the unusual Cambridge Blue livery (many MkVII’s were two-tone), and specified automatic transmission for the convenience of his wife, who was newly qualified to drive. However, he did not take to the auto ‘box (his previous Jaguars had all been manual) and she found the car too big, with the result that the MKVII was used mainly for special occasions. Stored in a dry garage since it was last run in the late 1960s until 2017, this remarkable car has covered a mere 2,020 miles from new. The original owners son had intended to restore the Jaguar but lacked the space to carry out the work, hence the decision to sell at Auction. The car since purchase by the current vendor has been re-commissioned to its current glory and now needs a small amount of work to bring it to a well deserved finish.
This amazing ‘time warp’ car exhibits all the features one would expect of a grand Jaguar saloon of the period – beautiful woodwork, switchgear, brightwork, tool trays, etc – and the fortunate new owner will be richly rewarded.
