Car to be at auction 8/23
www.silverstoneauctions.com/1934-jaguar-ss2-rec12504-1-broad-0823

Auction description:
The Dawn of Motoring Sale 2023 1934 S.S. Cars Ltd. SS2 1.6-Litre Series 2 Fixed Head Coupé

Make SWALLOW
Model SS2
Variant Series 2
Registration Number AVM 57
MOT Expiry Exempt
Chassis Number 300100
Engine Number 300089
Transmission Manual
Body Colour Black

AVM 57 was first registered on the 9th of June 2034 initially, we believe, to the factory. Subsequently, a Mr Bernard Adams of Chapel-en-le-Frith became its next custodian and it was to remain with him from September 1936 until August 2003 when Captain Geoffrey Uren purchased it. The following month it passed to a prominent private collector and there is correspondence with the car indicating that it took part in the Parliamentary Classic Car Run in April 2006 and the final Tax Disc on the windscreen expired in March 2007, which we assume was the end of its active life. Apparently there was a history file but this was mislaid during the transfer from Mr Adams to the Captain but there is a ‘buff’ logbook, some correspondence between keepers, an original Standard Cars Instruction Book showing some private written entries, one of which states that the engine was reconditioned in October 1956 and bored out to 69.5mm.

The car appears to be in an unrestored state and fairly original. The classic Jaeger odometer displays 29,692 miles which we imagine is probably 129,692 miles. We think it’s safe to say that it’s at the stage where a complete restoration is required, however, it may be possible to recommission AVM and get her running again. We invite and encourage interested parties to view this venerable, thirties FHC and form their own opinion as to how much work will be necessary to return this rare (1 of 154) Series 2, SS2 to the road.

The Christmas Sale 2023

Lot Number 254

1934 Swallow SS2 1.2-Litre Series 2 Coupé

Registration Number AVM 57

MOT Expiry Exempt

Chassis Number 300100

Engine Number 300089

Transmission Manual

Body Colour Black

This classic Jaguar has formed part of an extensive collection of British and European Classics and your inspection is encouraged

At the end of 1933, the second generation of the SS2 was introduced with a new longer-wheelbase chassis, revised styling with flowing wings and a choice of bigger engines, although still standard side-valve units of either 1,343cc (10hp) or 1,608cc (12hp).

It continued in production until 1935, and a total of 1,800 SS2 cars of all types were made, of which only 154 were Series 2 Coupés.

Finished in Black with a well patinated interior and original door cards

Believed to have been a factory car initially, then with its second keeper from 1936 until 2003 when it passed to its third keeper a short time later. The fourth keeper was a prominent Collector

There is evidence that the car was last on the road in 2006 when it took part in a Parliamentary Classic Car run but has since been stored in a dry, heated environment

Sadly, the history file was mislaid between the second and third keeper however there are a few pieces of correspondence and an old Buff Logbook

During August, AVM was up and running with air in its tyres however the engine will almost certainly require recommissioning

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?
