Z/1107

Endplate for a rear aerofoil from a Silk Cut era XJR racer.

Sold Price: £125.00

21 x 13 o/a. I didn’t realise how many different versions of these endplates there are until I started researching. There are innumerable variants in colour, logo and, above all, in shape. After much time looking at the many permutation of these variable, I had to go and have a lie down in a darkened room. Take a punt and see what you can find out!

Estimate Price: (e£40-50)

Original and with provenance to the “Motor” archive in 1945. Pencil note top left says “1½ Litre Jaguar”. If you have one of these cars that straddled WW2, this is for you. Or perhaps just buy it to put on the wall as a superb work of art. Each time I look at it I see a new angle I had not appreciated before. Fine and protected by a sheet of tracing paper.

Z/1112

“Technical Specifications” – a 9-page booklet listing of parts of the 2½ and 3½ litre Mark V and XK120 in seven European languages.

Sold Price: £27.89

If you are off touring in Europe when the restrictions are lifted, this is for you.

If you want the carburettor fixed, point to that in the English section and run your finger across the line until you reach the language you want. Also covers the XK100, but you’ll probably not need that! RS o/w Fine.

“Jaguar C-type, D-type and Lightweight E-type Register”.

Estimate Price: (e£40-50)

By Terry Larson, Penny Woodley, Den Carlow and Paul Skilleter. Anglo Danish Publications in 2014. A fine, scholarly work of research and writing. Led by Terry Larson, the aim of the project was to gather in one place a set of data of the highest accuracy. Terry’s helpers from around the world were a roll-call of Jaguar experts who shared Terry’s aims. An important book for Jaguar owners, drivers and anyone interested in these cars – the crème de la creme of Jaguar’s racers in the 1950s. Fine.

5 x 6.5. References are made to a 6-cylinder engine for the E-type. However, although the car was originally advertised with a six-cylinder engine, that never went into production.

Metal binding has some surface rust and this has transferred to the paper in places o/w VG.

Estimate Price: (e£100-125)

In a black wooden frame, 25 x 29 o/a. Some creasing and rubs at foot. The short production life of the Series 1 2+2 cars means that this is a rare poster. Good to VG.

Z/1120

A superb original concept drawing of a Jaguar mascot with the Mark VII in mind.

Sold Price: £150.00

To my eye, the artist appears to have drawn inspiration from the Armstrong Siddeley Sphinx. Most unusually this bears a metallic seal from the Joseph Lucas Styling Dept. Numbered S/426/850 and dated Aug 1950. Front is clean and unmarked. Traces of mounting on the back, but not adhesive. Probably unique.

Z/1121

Signed on behalf of all three parties with each signature witnessed but not dated. Presumably all signatures were added on 1 August 1955. The model in question is the Mark VII M.

Finally, one for all you owners of Jaguars with that superb V12 engine under the bonnet – the last lot in my Spring auction is the UK registration number – XJV 12.

Estimate Price: (e£8,000-£12,000)

Photos show the number on the Lynx Eventer that used to carry it, but the car is not included. The number is now held on a retention certificate that I have confirmed.

I can advise on the process of transferring this number to your car, which is pretty straightforward. There is also general guidance on the DVLA website at this link- www.gov.uk/personalised-vehicle-registration-numbers.

In view of the high value of this Lot, special bidding arrangements will apply. Above £8000, bidding will be in £200 steps. However, if the winning bid is less than £200 above the second bid, then that bid will succeed at the sum bid. So, if bidder A is top bidder at £9,350 and bidder B is the under-bidder at £9,280, then bidder A will win the Lot at a hammer price of £9,350, not £9,480. Also, at this level of business, my commission is reduced to 15% for buyers and sellers

If you have any queries at all on any aspect of this Lot, just MAIL ME.

With the agreement of the seller, the estimate spread is deliberately wide to give some elbow-room for your bids!
