Vehicle Description

Incredible 1938 Jaguar SS100 3 1/2 Litre RoadsterThis 1938 Jaguar S.S. 100 is one of three originally imported into the Netherlands and has been under the same ownership since 1959. This S.S. 100 is in generally un-restored condition apart from a re-spray in British Racing Green carried out circa 1967. The engine block was exchanged around 1960 for one taken from a 3 1/2 litre Jaguar Mark V. However, the cylinder head is still the original high-performance S.S. unit, cast in bronze. The gearbox is likewise original. The bodywork is in need of restoration as is the bright-work. Various parts were re-chromed in the 1960s and could now use another re-chroming. The interior was re-upholstered in the 1970s and is in generally good condition. The side windows are missing but the original pocket behind the seats for storing them when the top is down is still there. Dashboard instruments and dials are original and functioning. The S.S. 100 was one of the fastest and best-handling sports cars of its day, as its competition record both before and after the war bears witness to.
