Back in the 1990s when I was married, my ex drove an XJS, my daily was a Mark II, and my weekender was (and is) an E-Type. So we were an all Jag family. But those early SS cars always fascinated me. My ex wanted a replica of the SS 100, which was always her favorite. I loved the longer SS's like the one shown here. Congrats on a superb result!!
My folks owned a 1934 SS1 in the late 1970's until 1983. They purchased the SS1 from a collector (Chamberlain?) in Fresno, CA for $6,000. It had a Ford motor at the time, and drove surprisingly well! She needed a full restoration, but I think most of the parts were there. It drew lots of attention. I wish I had that silver beauty now!
Lovely car. Thanks. SS/Jaguars of the '30s were sold to the sort of people who bought Auburns in the US. They offered style and presence for cutthroat price, how Jaguar made its name, tho' until the SS100 were oft described as "sheep in wolves' clothing."
