For sale at Monterey CA auction
8/17/2017
www.prewarcar.com/index.php

In 1937 just 45 SS Jaguar Tourers were produced. At the factory this car received the OHV engine from the already famed SS100 as opposed to the previous and dated Side Valve example. Today less than 11 of these OHV examples are known to exist, but fewer still retain the historical paperwork that is supplied with the model you see before you.Chassis Number 19098 still retains its numbers matching engine, Gearbox and Body. A true time warp car with Jaguar Certification from their Heritage Department. Finished in Factory Suede Green with Contrasting Suede Green Interior, wheels and brakes, this thoroughbred is in a league of its own. This marque has a recorded build date of March 1st 1937.Distributed from Henly's of London United Kingdom on the 22nd March 1937 it was sent to Leigh Datchet Motors in the Royal Borough of Windsor in Berkshire. Leigh Park Motors pre-registered all of their new vehicles with Henly's so the new owners did not have to wait for lengthy paperwork exercises, thus allowing them to enjoy their new purchases immediately. Stored since 1963 this example was discovered just recently, and has been the subject of a thorough restoration, and is presented to you in its unmarked factory "Double Suede Green" color combination. Chassis 19098 is the quintessential marque for any pre-war car collector and is finished to the highest of standards.This OHV Tourer still retains its Leigh Park Motors Tag attached to the bulkhead thus bolstering its provenance.

This Vehicle will be auctioned by Worldwide Auctioneers on Thursday the 17th August 2017 at the Pacific Grove sale in Monterey CA. Please follow the below link for more information on the car and also to register as a bidder for this event.www.worldwide-auctioneers.com/

Car to return to auction 3/20

Auction description:

Lot Number 271

1937 SS Jaguar 2½-Litre Tourer

$175,000 - $225,000

Offered Without ReserveRM | Sotheby's - AMELIA ISLAND 6 - 7 MARCH 2020

Chassis No. 19098

Engine No. 251080

Gearbox No. 1627

Body No. 4497

One of 105 examples built; only 45 in 1937

One of relatively few fitted with the 2.7-liter OHV engine from the SS 100

Thought to be one of only 11 such examples extant

Documented American ownership dating to 1963

Restored to the original color scheme in the mid-2010s

Mechanically freshened under current ownership for reliable driving

Documented with factory build records and 30 years of correspondence

Chassis no. 19098 is the 98th example of the 105 cars built, of which perhaps 32 cars survive today. The tourer was notably equipped with the upgraded Weslake engine, in which form as few as 11 examples are currently believed to remain extant. Finished in suede green with a matching suede-green interior (a color scheme the car continues to faithfully wear today), the tourer completed factory assembly in March and was distributed to Henley’s of London before being sold for retail to Leigh Park Motors in Windsor.

By 1963 the SS was exported to the United States, and following a minor freshening the car remained dormant for many years, passing through four owners through the mid-2010s. Around 2015 the tourer was discovered and treated to a substantial refurbishment in the original colors, and it was subsequently acquired in 2017 by the consignor. He has since mechanically freshened the car with a complete rewiring of the electrical system and service as needed to driving standards.

Retaining its original matching-numbers engine, gearbox, and body, this beautifully presented 2½-Litre tourer is documented with a build record, a factory production ledger, a heritage certificate, an owner’s manual, and 30 years of correspondence. It would make a stunning addition to any marque gathering or pre-war collection.

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?
