Hello gentlemen, I believe I posted a picture of this car here about five years ago, but I thought I would share a few more again before the old car goes down the road. My dear old Dad recently passed away a week and a half ago in Cornwall, England at 93 years young. He always called this an original Jaguar after the SS sidecar company.
The car has some race history, I was with hime the day he bought it when we lived in Guernsey, C.I. Fifty years ago.
It was a mess as it was used as a sand racer out on Vazon Bay and also a hill climber. It didn’t see an easy life ,
fair to say. My Dad found it parked and neglected in a farmer’s field. I believe he said he paid the farmer 150 quid as the Brits like to say. It wasn’t the fastest car in the world but it sure put a smile on his face. It’ll be going to a new home apparently once the solicitors figure it all out.
Not sure if it classifies as a true old Jaguar on this pre war forum, but I thought I would share anyway.
No pictures complete without the one in front of his favourite pub. Not sure about some of the cropping of pictures but I don’t think his eyesight was the best anymore.
