Classic Car Overview

1957 Jaguar MK 1 Jaguar is responsible for some of the most memorable cars ever produced. Its no coincidence that the brands designs tend to age gracefully. And its no coincidence that well-preserved Jaguars always find a dedicated group of fans that are ready and willing to pay top dollar for their favorite vintage. If the recent uptick in European cars has piqued your interest, but paying big money simply isnt in the cards, heres your chance to own an incredible early model designed by William Lyons, Jaguars founder. Born in Coventry England on 25 July 1956, this Mark I was dispatched to Jaguar Cars, New York USA 21 August 1956 and it was titled in Pennsylvania as a 1957 model. A fun sports car for its original owner, was then sold to the current consigner in October 1964. Our consigner used it until it was about 10 years old, at which time it needed a clutch master cylinder. He started the task, but then life took over, and the wait for repair would last 40 years. The beneficiary of a recently completed 3-year mechanical restoration, the automobile runs and drives swimmingly. Our second owner and consigners health is failing, and the job will go into the capable hands of the next owner, who can take it across the finish line...literally Exterior All chrome has been re-plated, the wheels were sandblasted and de-burred and repainted. New tires were put on. The only rust that was on the car was at the bottom of the front fenders, and it has been remediated. 2 small dents in the roof are noted from hauling a sailboat. Body panels are straight, and definitely need a new paint job. This Mark 1 is all original spec and has no modifications whatsoever. A beautiful curved body shape, complete with fender skirts and all the re-plated chrome one can shake a stick at, presents very well even in lieu of needing paint. Interior Well-worn black leather covers the bucket seats in front, and a bench in the rear. These float on carpet that exists only in the back of the car, and it will need replaced. Door panels are attached to wood framed upper doors and show some age. The Walnut burl dash has no cracks or missing pieces, shows slight patina, and contains original gauges. The original steering wheel is in the car as the radio right in front of the wheel. Glass is all intact and rolls up and down smoothly via a hand crank. Drivetrain Spot on and Spot-less best describes this completely restored 2.4 liter 6-cylinder engine. A 4-speed manual transmission is attached and has overdrive. All mechanical work has been completed and this car starts quickly and shifts effortlessly. Just a beautiful presentation under the hood, and possibly giving you a glimpse as to what the completed restoration could yield. Undercarriage Completely restored suspension, and drivetrain painted pristine black, and showing very little wear, sits within a field of original painted metal, and a few areas of surface rust. This can easily be addressed when the repaint takes place. Lower doors on the inside will need to be considered at this time as well. Mechanically very sound, body and interior will require some attention, but consider that almost $70,000 has been spent to date on the restoration, you are truly nearly there. This car will be sold with a litany of extra parts, that will certainly go a long way when completing the restoration. Cheers!
