Car offered at:
www.carandclassic.com/car/C76077/

Sellers description:
Chassis number 18100
Body Number 4825
Engine Number M 1417 E

An historic car delivered in 1937 to Leith, Edinburgh.

By 1948 it was owned by the celebrated Jock McBain noted for his Border Rievers team that became the nursery for both Jackie Stewart & Jim Clarke. It was under his tenure that the current 3.5 Litre engine was fitted replacing the former 2.5 Litre unit. McBain ran it at Winfield where he claimed to have hit 118 MPH on the straight.

The car was extensively restored some years ago & has seen little use since. The restoration included a full engine rebuild & detailing of the engine bay. The car has been the recipient of several awards at concours events.

The coach work is black & has picked up just a tiny patina to give the car a driven rather then "fresh restoration" feel. The interior is mint with brand new burgundy leather & carpets just fitted. The hood has also been redyed to deep black.

Many of the cars years were spent in California where it let a cosseted life as part of a large collection & thus during that time saw little use, but lots of polishing & maintenance!! The car comes with a plethora of paperwork & correspondence from previous owners allowing one to trace the cars history over the years.

Car to be at auction 3/12
www.coys.co.uk/auction.php

Auction description:
Lot 127 - 1937 Jaguar SS100 3 ½ Litre - Ex Jock McBain, Borders Reivers
Estimate: €230,000 - €270,000
Registration Number: EU Registered
Chassis Number: 18100

This example, Chassis 18100 was one such car used in anger in period. Delivered new in 1937 to Leith in Edinburgh, Scotland and used occasionally until it was purchased by the celebrated race driver and team owner Jock McBain, noted for his Borders Reivers team that became the nursery for both Jackie Stewart and Jim Clarke. The car was purchased by McBain in 1948 and it was under his tenure that the current 3 ½ litre engine was fitted for increased performance. This was very much common practice at the time and McBain ran it at Winfield where he claimed to have hit 118 mph on the straight.

In the early 1950s the car changed hands and resided south of the border in the north east of England, but was still campaigned at various club events and hillclimbs. Chassis 18100 was then sold back to Jock McBain in exchange for a Formula 3 Cooper Norton.

In later years the car was exported to the US and resided in California for many years where it let a cosseted life as part of a large collection and thus during that time saw little use.
The car was extensively restored including an engine rebuild some years ago and has seen little use since.

The car has been the recipient of several awards at concours events with the coach work finished in black and has picked up just a tiny patina to give the car a driven rather than "fresh restoration" feel. The interior is finished with burgundy hide and carpets and the hood has also been replaced with new double duck.

Supplied with a plethora of paperwork and correspondence from previous owners allowing one to trace the cars wonderful period race history, this fantastic motor car is a welcome entrant to many historic motor sport events and indeed rare to find an SS100 with competition history in such good order.

The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
