The Swallow Sidecar Company was founded in 1922 by William Lyons and William Walmsley. In 1934 Lyons formed SS Cars Limited to effectively take over the operation from Walmsley. The SS brand was quite successful; though they had a reputation for having more show than go. The Jaguar name first appeared as a model name on an SS 2½ Litre Sports Saloon introduced in 1936. For political reasons, Lyons changed the name of his company to Jaguar Cars in 1945. Whilst the SS100 is indeed a fabulous car, it was the launch of the legendary Jaguar XK120 at the London Motor Show in 1948 that really put Jaguar on the map. The car caused a sensation, which persuaded Jaguar founder and design boss William Lyons to put it into production. The 120 in its name referred to its 120 mph top speed, which made the XK120 the worlds fastest production car in its day. It was available in two open versions, first as the roadster (designated OTS, for open two-seater), then also as a drophead coupé (DHC) from 1953. The car was also available as a closed or fixed head coupé (FHC) from 1951. The XK120 was succeeded by the XK140 which was launched in late 1954 and sold through until 1957. Whilst the XK140 looked similar to the XK120 there were in fact many subtle and indeed important differences. The XK140 featured a more spacious cabin and had improved brakes, suspension and steering. Visually the car had American style bumpers with overriders, a different grille (that had fewer, thicker vertical bars), a chrome strip on the bonnet & boot and an emblem Jaguar Winner Le Mans 1951-3 on the boot also. The final iteration of the XK was the XK150 that was released in 1957. Whilst its family resemblance to its forbearers is obvious the XK150 was in fact a very different car. Most noticeable was the change to a one piece windscreen and the smoother wing line from the front to the rear of the car. Cabin space was significantly improved making the XK150 a far more comfortable car to drive. Mechanically the first XK150s were similar to the XK140s, however, an SE variant with a modified cylinder head giving more power and an S variant with triple SU carburettors giving even more power were soon available. In 1959 engine capacity was increased from 3.4 litres to 3.8 litres. Like the XK120 both the XK140 and XK150 were offered in three body style being the roadster, drop head coupe and fixed head coupe. Oldtimer Australia is delighted to offer for sale an absolutely stunning, fully restored Jaguar XK150 Roadster / Open Two Seater (OTS). This particular car is a North American delivered, factory left hand drive example. According to the Jaguar Heritage Certificate on file this particular car was completed on the 9th October 1958 and despatched on the 21st November 1958 through Jaguar Cars in New York in the USA. The car was originally finished in black with a red interior and a black soft top. The cars first owner was RJ McLeod from New York City, USA. The car is documented in the following book: The Jaguar XK in Australia (1985) by John Elmgreen and Terry McGrath. The cars history stated below is an extract from that book: Owner: Jim Byrne, Lane Cove, Sydney, NSW Despatched 8th December 1958 to Jaguar Cars New York. Nothing further known until purchased in Los Angeles in 1981without motor, gearbox or trim by Jim Byrne and then imported into Australia. The car was in need of restoration and it was sold to Jaguar restorer Terry Hilton who on sold the car to the current owner in 1992 with a view to restoring the car for him. For a number of reasons the restoration did not start for many years and when it did, progress was extremely slow. Hilton moved towns at some stage and due to ill health most of his projects ground to a halt. In 2013 the car was given to Wolf Grodds Sleeping Beauties in Brisbane who basically started again. Sleeping Beauties is one of Australias leading high end restoration shops and they have restored cars that have been exhibited at the Pebble Beach Concours dElegance. The car was completed and exhibited at Motorclassica, which is Australias leading concours delegance and classic car show in 2015. The car has been used sparingly since and only travelled 1,494 miles since the restoration was completed. Today the car presents and drives like a freshly restored car. It is STUNNING! The only thing we can fault is that the soft top is not a perfect fit. In consultation with Sleeping Beauties, the owner chose to finish the car in a dark blue with a grey upholstery, blue carpets and a dark blue soft top. As you will see from the photographs this was a spectacular choice. The paint is fresh with a strong depth of colour and unmarked, with the exception of some very light scratching where the soft top sits once installed. The chrome is also vibrant and contrasts the dark blue paint perfectly. All of the external trim, badges, lights/lenses and the glass present like new. Inside the cabin, the car also presents like new. The leather is unmarked and it remains supple. All of the instruments and controls are in excellent condition and everything looks to be in working order. Even the carpets are like new, as is the soft top which has probably never been used. The owner chose to have a number of modern improvements fitted to the car when it was restored, including a Tremec T5 gearbox, EZ power steering, an all aluminum radiator with electric cooling fans, modern air conditioning and a Retrosound radio. He also chose to have the car upgraded to S spec and when you open the bonnet you immediately notice the triple carburettor set up. So whats it like to drive? Its fair to say it drives every bit as good as it looks . . . and perhaps even better! The engine starts easily at the first push of the starter button, even from cold. Theres no fuss, its just very easy and incredibly smooth. You want to drive it, but resist the temptation for a few minutes whilst the car warms up. After only a few hundred meters you immediately realise that this is not your everyday Jaguar XK! The throttle response is incredible and the car has loads of power on tap. The gearbox is smooth but precise and the EZ power steering makes the car so easy to manoeuvre at low speed. Importantly once you are fully motoring the steering is precise and direct. The suspension feels firm but balanced and there are no rattles or squeaks. The brakes are certainly 1950s but they more than adequately get the job done driving the car at legal speed. The car is accompanied by a Heritage Certificate, a thick file of restoration receipts, photos of the restoration, an owners manual, a tonneau cover, a jack and a (sparse) tool kit. Highlights: - A fully restored and immaculately presented Jaguar XK150 Roadster. - Restored by world renowned specialists Sleeping Beauties. - Restored with a number of modern improvements to make this a more usable classic car. - Finished in an absolutely perfect and STUNNING colour combination. - Exhibited at Motorclassica 2015. - Fully sorted and ready to enjoy. This classic Jaguar has just been serviced and it is ready for Summer and its next keeper. Price $249,950.

Whilst the SS100 is indeed a fabulous car, it was the launch of the legendary Jaguar XK120 at the London Motor Show in 1948 that really put Jaguar on the map. The car caused a sensation, which persuaded Jaguar founder and design boss William Lyons to put it into production. The XK120 morphed into the XK140 and ultimately the XK150 and in total, just over 30,000 cars were built over fifteen years of production. Jaguar introduced the E-Type at the 1961 Geneva Motor Show, which like the XK120 all those years ago, took the motoring world by storm. The body styling was simply gorgeous and technologically the E-Type was an engineering masterpiece and it set new standards in all areas. Whilst automotive styling is somewhat subjective the E-Type is often ranked atop lists of the most beautiful cars and in fact, it has been described by Enzo Ferrari as the most beautiful car ever made. Jaguar could build sports cars but they were also very successful at building sports saloons. In 1955 the Jaguar Mk1 was introduced to fill a gap in the model range of a small to medium sized luxury saloon. Initially introduced with a 2.4 litre 6 cylinder engine and later a 3.4 litre 6 cylinder engine this model was very successful with some 38,000 examples sold between 1955 and 1959. In 1959 the Mk2 was introduced and whilst visually similar at first glance the new car had many improvements over its predecessor. In addition to the 2.4 litre and 3.4 litre engines the Mk2 was also offered with a 3.8 litre engine as used in the E-Type. Just over 80,000 Mk2s were built from 1959 to 1967. The Mk2 was to be replaced by the XJ6, however, delays with this car resulted in Jaguar producing another series of the Mk2 which was designated as the 240 and 340 to fall into line with the nomenclature used with other models on offer at the time, specifically the 420. The 240 and 340 were built from 1967 to 1969 andalmost 4,500 and 2,800 respectively of each model were built. The Jaguar Mk2 was also very successful on the race track winning events all over the world. One of the most successful teams was UK based John Coombs, who also developed a business selling Jaguar Mk2s upgraded with Coombs modifications. Oldtimer Australia is delighted to offer for sale a 1967 Jaguar Mk2 Coombs Tribute. This particular car is a factory right hand drive Jaguar 240 that has been upgraded with a number of Coombs modifications, including a 4.2 litre Jaguar engine. The early history of this car is not known, however, it is understood to have been a long term Queensland car. The car was registered in Queensland as 398 LHP. It was owned by an ex Leyland/Jaguar mechanic for many years and he passed the car down to his son. It was sold through the Classic Car Garage in Caloundra on the Sunshine Coast in April 2011 to its next owner in Gympie who decided to upgrade the car with a number of Coombs modifications, including a Daimler 4.2 litre engine. The car was purchased by Jeremy Bests Cummins Classic Cars in Sydney who decided to go the full monty with the car undertaking further Coombs modifications. The decided to fit a 4.2 litre Jaguar engine that was rebuilt for one of Ian Cummins Jaguar E-Type race cars, but never used. The modifications and upgrades which make this car a very special Jaguar Mk2 include: - Race prepared 4.2 litre engine - Rob Beere billet alloy oil pump - Scorcher/Petronix ignition - Power-Lite starter motor - Uprated electric fuel pump and pressure regulator - 2 x 2 inch HD8 carburettors with alloy air trumpets and alloy air spreader copied from originals and sourced from Coombs engineer Ken Bell - Alloy radiator and electric cooling fan - 5 speed Getrag 260 gearbox (from a BMW) with overdrive 5th gear - Solid front cross member mounts - Uprated front sway bar - 30% stiffer front springs - Super-Pro suspension bushes - Koni dampers front and rear - 4 pot brake calipers with ventilated discs - Alloy cold air ducting for front brakes - Goodridge steel braided flexible brake lines - EZ electric power steering - D type gear knob - Coombes replica exhaust in stainless steel - Genuine Minilite knock on mag wheels - Period correct leather trimmed bucket seats - Louvred bonnet - Momo steering wheel - Various period correct stickers including Coombs dealer rear window sticker The engine was built up by Graeme Lord Engineering with Argo con rods, special 9.5 to 1 pistons, E-Type inlet manifold, E-Type camshafts, large volume oil pump with special flaps in the sump to help with oil surge, extractor exhaust fitted to a gas flowed big valve cylinder head with 3x 2 inch S.U carburettors giving 325 BHP at 5,800 rpm. When the engine was installed into this car it was done with a dual carburettor setup, most likely to get it to fit! Today this car presents pretty well, but it is all about the drive! When you approach the car the louvred bonnet and knock on Minilite wheels are the first giveaway that this is no ordinary Jaguar Mk2! You open the door, slide into bucket seat, get comfortable and then with great anticipation fire up the engine. Theres no doubt it means business! It has an edge for sure, but it is still relatively refined given its specifications. Immediately after getting mobile you appreciate the EZ power steering which make the car incredibly light on the road and easy to drive. The Getrag gearbox is firm and it is well suited to the car. Not surprisingly the engine has loads of power on tap and it is so incredibly responsive. The car handles and stops as you would expect. Make no mistake this car is quick . . . it is one heck of a drivers car! From say a meter the car presents well, but it is no trailer queen and on closer inspection, there are a number of stone chips and small blemishes in the paint evident. The most noticeable are some scratches on the left rear guard, adjacent to the boot. The panel gaps are pretty good and the car is clean underneath. The boot looks to be very original and whilst it is showing some wear there is no sign of any rust. All of the external trim, chrome, lights/lenses and the glass are in very good condition. The Mk2 enthusiasts will note that the slimline Jaguar 240/340 bumpers have been replaced with the traditional Mk2 bumpers without overriders. The condition of the interior of the car is comparable to the exterior. It is clean and tidy. The feature of the interior is the steering wheel and bucket seats, which like the bonnet louvres and Minilite wheels reinforce that this is no ordinary Jaguar Mk2! The upholstery is in good condition and there are no rips or tears in the seats. The door cards are clean, though they are starting to sag. The timber is clean with no cracks evident, though the dash is starting to show its age and it would benefit from a refurbish. All of the instruments and controls are also in good condition and everything looks to be in working order. The car was fitted with new Dunlop CR65 tyres in January 2018. Accompanying the car is a recent history file, documentation pertaining to the engine build back in 2003, a spare set of wire wheels, a spare wheel in the car, tool kit, hammer and jack. Its time for the ultimate game of cops and robbers! Price $79,950.
