Footnotes

  • The Lister name has long been associated with the marque Jaguar. Brian Lister’s first sports racer was designed in 1954, a Lister-MG which was campaigned with much success by Archie Scott-Brown. In that year the first Lister-Bristol was built which proved all-conquering in the British Grand Prix against the Works Teams of Jaguar and Aston Martin. Scott-Brown maintained his allegiance to Lister and in 1957, driving a Lister Jaguar, dominated the sports-racing car season including a magnificent victory in the British Empire Trophy Race. Lister Jaguars competed at Le Mans in the 1950s with mixed success and in 1959 Lister Cars retired from competitive racing. The arrival of Laurence Pearce in the 1980s saw the name Lister re-emerge as a major force in sports car manufacture. Amongst other projects, conversion of the XJS Jaguar was undertaken with great success and this in turn led eventually to the design of an all-new supercar – the Storm.

    This Lister Jaguar Mark III Convertible is powered by the mighty 7-litre engine and we are informed was maintained by Lister Cars Ltd from 1994 to 1998. It was sold to its previous owner by Lister Cars in October 1996 at an invoice price of £35,000. During the present ownership in the collection this car has seen minimal use and the current recorded mileage is just 8,867 miles. This stunning convertible is presented in dark metallic blue livery and the cockpit upholstered in cream upholstery with blue piping and blue carpets. The hood and hood envelope are blue, matching the coachwork. The car is equipped with a five-speed manual gearbox and sits on OZ racing alloy wheels and is fitted with Lister branded steering wheel.

    The car was first registered in the U.K. in 1994 and comes with a series of old MoT certificates, the last expiring in January 2009. It comes also with old style V5 document and current V5C registration document.
