1969 Jaguar 340

1987 Mercedes-Benz 190E

1969 Jaguar 340 SOLD!

Wow….I mean….how cool is this car !!

It is the car you have seen in every British movie made, and you drooled over it and wished it was yours. It is the quintessential British Jaguar…twin overhead cam six,burled walnut everywhere and the smell of leather.

This Jaguar is in exceptional original condition. It was purchased new in Halifax and first registered in the spring of 1969.I aquired it this past summer from the second owner who purchased it on Aug 11,1972 from the original owner. The vehicle was always pampered,stored indoors and meticulously maintained. It was re-sprayed in 1984 to ‘freshen ‘ the paint finish.
All the original equipment is intact from the radio to the tool kit. Original manuals and service records attest to the care that was taken with this car.

Amazingly, this 340 has only 70,000 actual miles! That’s only 1600 miles per year!
The car has just completed an extensive update and comprehensive service at Village Green Motorcars in Halifax ( which is an absolutely wonderful place if you don’t already know about it)

The upolstry is simply amazing, as it was covered since new with full sheepskin hides such that the seats look like they have never been sat on. No cracks, wearmarks or fading. Likewise the woodwork shines like the day it left Coventry 44 years ago.

Now don’t get carried away. This is not a 100 point ‘Trailer Queen’ ready for Pebble Beach Concours show. It it rather , a beautiful, low milage original automobile that will carry itself and its passengers in style and grace for many more years of memorable motoring. It has the appropriate patina for its age complete with minor beauty marks but is still in amazing condition

It is really quite a ‘Chick Magnet’ too….unfortunately all the ‘chicks’ seem to be in their 70’s or 80’s and have an uncle in England who has one ‘just like it’

If you are looking for an exceptionally sound, low milage, classic British Jaguar, you may have just found it.
Contact me for more details and to set up an opportunity to experience the elegance and fun of this classic motoring icon first hand. When you take it home ,you will enjoy the envy of all your friends and neighbours…including me.
