These are the original bespoke black leather trim panels from the interior of Steve McQueen’s XKSS.

Estimate Price: (e£2000-3000)

Following his death in November 1980, many of his cars were auctioned at a sale in Las Vegas. A neighbour of his, Richard Freshman, purchased his XKSS at the sale and arranged for the car to be shipped to Lynx for refurbishment. It was agreed that the car would be returned to its original factory specification and as a result, a number of items specific to the car and had been commissioned by McQueen, were removed and discarded. Lynx subsequently restored the car for Richard Freshman, and the car now forms part of the display at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles.

In March 1992, when John acquired Lynx, he came across a large cardboard box with the words ‘McQueen XKSS’ written on it. Intrigued, John asked what this was about and was told it was merely from an old job and should have been thrown away. When he opened the box, he found the original leather panels that had been personally commissioned by Steve McQueen from US trim specialist Tony Nancy in 1958, after McQueen first bought his Jaguar XKSS! Having looked after these unique items for more than 25 years, John finally decided that they should be enjoyed by a fellow McQueen enthusiast.  Unique.

The Jaguar XK in Australia by John Elmgreen and Terry McGrath Limited Edition No 808/1000 – signed by Terry McGrath.

Sold Price: (£700-800)

This superb book stands in the front rank of the Jaguar library as a testament to years of diligent research and scholarship. Co-authored by John Elmgreen and Terry McGrath, two luminaries of the Australian Jaguar scene, this book was published in New South Wales in 1985. Publication was limited to 1000 numbered copies. It is a huge book 10 inches by 13.5 inches in size and 373 pages in length. Strongly bound in green cloth boards. Quite a few copies have lost their dust-wrappers as the “wrap-rounds” were slightly undersized, so they easily came adrift from the book. This one is present. For me this book ticks two boxes – it is a superbly produced offering for the collector and it also appeals to the Jaguar fan through the wealth of history and scores of excellent photographs, many seldom seen outside Australia and the Antipodes. Near Mint book with Fine d/w.

‘Jaguar – a Tradition of Sports Cars’ by Bernard Viart and Michel Cognet.

Sold Price: £30.00

Haynes.1985. 443 pp. 8.5 x 10. The French equivalent of the milestone books written by such English authors as Paul Skilleter, Philip Porter and Andrew Whyte. First published in French in 1984 but this edition in English. A deeply researched book of the company that also deals with the cars. Its special joy is the number of photos that appear for the first time. This is a direct result of the two authors having direct access to much French material. Michel Cognet worked for the company’s main agent in Paris for many years including the 1950s when he was the unofficial liaison officer and local “fixer” with the Company’s works teams at Le Mans, Rheims etc. He therefore had a unique insight into the era – and a huge fund of stories to tell, not all of which the lawyers would allow into the book!
