*Earliest-surviving 2½-litre saloon
*Matching numbers
*Highly original


Setting the template for successive Jaguar saloons this 1946 2½-litre saloon is said to be the earliest example known to survive. The car offered is number 10 of the first 17 2 ½-litres built after the war and features numerous SS Jaguar parts which were not seen in later models. This car's bodywork, black paint, glass and chrome are vendor-assessed as very good, the wheels/tyres as excellent. The pigskin seats and trim are reported to be excellent and the dashboard, door cards and headlining as very good. Engine running and starting is ranked as excellent, presentation as very good and the running gear is rated as very good throughout. Our vendor says the electrics are excellent. The car's history file is said to be very good.
