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 coupe (DHC) from 1953. The car was also available as a closed or fixed head coupe (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. 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 styles being the roadster, drophead coupe and fixed head coupe. Oldtimer Australia is delighted to offer for sale a factory left hand drive 1951 Jaguar XK120 that was delivered new to the north American market. According to the Jaguar Heritage Certificate on file this particular car was completed on the 8th June 1951 and despatched on the 20th June 1951 to Hornborg, Los Angeles in the USA. The car was originally finished in pastel blue with a duo-blue interior and a fawn soft top. The car is documented in the following books: The Jaguar XK120 in the Southern Hemisphere (2009) by John Elmgreen and Terry McGrath. The cars history stated below is an extract from that book: Chassis completed in June 1951 and despatched 20 June 1951 to Hornburg, Los Angeles, California, USA. Sold possibly to Dr E. Charland of Inglewood, California via Cavilar Motors of Los Angeles, California (however, this was not recorded by the factory). In December 1954 the car was sold by him to Edgar Zwieback of 175 Cordova Walk, Long Beach, California, and apparently owned by him at least into the 1970s. Nothing further known until the late 1980s when it was purchased in the USA by Peter Fox of Victoria, and imported into Australia. Said to be part of well-known businessman Lindsay Foxs collection. During the 1990s, the car was completely restored, including being repainted in its original Pastel Blue metallic. In March 2005 it went to auction with Bonhams and Goodmans at the Fox collection site in Docklands, Melbourne and was sold, apparently with just 19 miles recorded since the restoration. Still lhd at that time. Original colours: Pastel Blue, Duo Blue, Fawn. Regd: GGF710 (California, USA), KIF708 (California, USA). This car was one of several XKs purchased by Peter Fox and the second car restored by the Foxes. Terry McGrath. The current owner acquired this STUNNING Jaguar XK120 Roadster in December 2005 following its no sale at the Bonhams & Goodman Sydney auction in March 2005. This car is part of a major collection and it has been used sparingly since being purchased. Today the odometer reads 02715 miles. Its hard to believe that this car was restored in excess of twenty years ago. Granted it has hardly been driven, but everything is still very fresh. Today the car presents beautifully. When you look at this car, with spats fitted and presented in the most perfect colour scheme it is not hard to understand why the world went crazy for the Jaguar XK120 in 1948! The paint work on the car remains excellent all round with the only blemish some crazing where the soft top has rubbed against the body. All of the exterior trim, glass and chrome are also in excellent condition. The only exception being the exhaust tip which shows a few very light spots and there is the odd light scratch or mark on the chrome windscreen frame. Inside the cabin is quite simple, yet it oozes class. The leather remains subtle and clean and all of the instruments & controls (which are working order) are crisp and clear. The carpet has a few bare patches that have most likely been caused by moths. You may notice from the photothat the drivers door pull strap is missing. A replacement has been sourced and will be fitted prior to sale. The engine bay is clean & well presented and the boot looks to be unused. The soft top fits well and is in excellent condition. So whats it like to drive? Its fair to say it drives every bit as good as it looks. The engine starts easily and then it grumbles a little until the automatic choke turns off. It warms up quickly and then its all systems go. You are immediately surprised by the throttle response, which is almost instant. The performance of the car is really good. Everything is tight, just a like a freshly restored car! The gearbox is as smooth as a Moss box can be and the car steers and stops as it should. There is an unused spare wheel, jack and tool kit that will accompany the car. This Jaguar XK120 Roadster ticks all the boxes. The car retains its original matching numbers engine block which is unusual for many XKs. When restored it was finished in its original colour - which is just perfect for the car - and the finishing touch are the spats which complete the look. We have had the pleasure of handling a number of Jaguar XKs over the years and this one is without doubt the very best. Classic Jaguars are in high demand and these early XKs are just so very cool . . . and perhaps this example is the coolest cat of them all! Price: $179,950.

Oldtimer Australia is delighted to offer for sale a 1956 Jaguar XK140 SE Fixed Head Coupe. This car is fitted with the factory C-Type cylinder head as confirmed by the S suffix on the engine number. It is confirmed as having matching numbers chassis, engine (block and cylinder head) and body numbers. This particular car is a UK delivered, factory right hand drive example. According to the Jaguar Heritage Certificate on file this particular car was completed on the 30th April 1956 and despatched on the 16th May 1956 through Henleys in London. It was delivered to Naomi Cotton from Bournemouth who first registered the car as NC140. Interestingly, our research shows that in 1957 she bought an XK150 SE FHC 3.4 and transferred the registration of NC140 to that car. Then in 1960 she purchased an Aston Martin DB4. She must have been quite a wealthy lady! The XK140 was originally finished in British racing green with a biscuit piped suede green interior. The heritage certificate also specifies this car was delivered with a 4-speed manual close ratio gearbox with overdrive. Not much more is known about the early history of the car. From the UK Vehicle Registration Document (V5) we do know the car only had two registered owners in the UK from 1984 until when the current owner purchased the car in the UK in July 2001. He purchased the car from Chapel End Cars at Nuneaton and subsequently imported it into Australia. There is an Import Approval on file dated 15th August 2001. When the car arrived in Australia it was in a fairly poor condition. The owner contacted Jaguar specialist Mike Roddy Motors in Melbourne to discuss options for restoring the car. In the end he decided to do it properly and embarked on a frame off restoration. Mike Roddy disassembled the car and took care of all the mechanicals. The body work and painting were entrusted to Peter Denny at Stylerod Panels in Kilsyth, Victoria. All chrome work was done by Classic Chrome in Geelong. The owner sourced a lot of new parts from well known Jaguar part suppliers like Guy Broad in the UK, XK Unlimited in the US and Jagdaim in Melbourne. All in all, it took over 10 years to complete the project. Once completed the car was stunning, however, it is great to see it did not become a trailer queen! Yes this car was pampered but it was also used and enjoyed and it has travelled some 12,000 miles since it was restored. The car was restored as original except for the addition of a cooling system header tank andthermal fan which more than copes with the Australian summer. The globes in the tail lights have been replaced with LED boards, imported from the USA, so they are now highly visible even in direct sunlight. It also has a stainless steel exhaust system with the mufflers an exact copy of the originals. Today the car presents and drives superbly. The exterior presents exceptionally well and the interior still presents like new. The paintwork is excellent and it still has a good depth of colour and a high gloss finish. There are a few very minor blemishes here and there, but were being fussy! All the external trim and the chrome work are in good condition, as is all the glass. The wire wheels are a feature and all in good condition on this car. The car is fitted with Kuhmo P215/70R16 radial tyres all round. The interior of this car is just stunning. The leather remains soft and supple and in excellent condition, belying the 12,000 miles travelled since the restoration was completed. The timber work is lovely and even the carpets are in excellent unmarked condition. All of the instruments and controls present well and are in working order. Purists will note the bank of non original switches to the right of the steering column which operate the windscreen washers, thermos fan, overdrive, horn, drivelights and choke. So how does this Jaguar XK140 perform out on the road? Time to find out . . . turn on the ignition check, flick the switch for the choke check, wait a few seconds for the fuel pump to feed some fuel in the carburettors check . . . the car starts easily at the first push of the starter button. Once you have started the car it only needs the choke for a few more seconds before you can turn it off and the car will settle into an easy idle. The 3.4 litre engine in this XK140 is incredibly smooth. That said, once you blip the throttle the car has an edge and you can feel that it just begs to be driven. So lets go! Out on the open road this car is just a delight to drive and it has a real presence about it. As noted above, the engine is smooth, so too are gear changes (yes it still has its original Moss box!) and there are no nasty rattles or squeaks to be heard. Everything looks to be in working order and this car is one of the best driving XKs we have experienced. The restoration has stood the test of time which is a credit to Mike Roddy and his team and of course its current owner. Accompanying the car is a Heritage Certificate, an excellent history file, restoration receipts & photos, an owners manual, parts manual and other miscellaneous documentation. There is also a spare wheel, jacking tools and grease gun, which are all as new in the boot. This Jaguar XK140 SE Fixed Head Coupes current mature owner has made the difficult decision to sell. Therefore, the car is now looking for its next custodian. Highlights: * A factory right hand drive, fully matching numbers example. * Desirable SE specification XK140 with the C-type cylinder head. * Full frame off restoration by Jaguar Specialist Mike Roddy Motors. * Just a wonderful car that still presents and drives exceptionally well. There are XKs and there are XKs . . . this car is one of the best! Price $199,950.

For political reasons, Lyons changed the name of his company to Jaguar Cars in 1945. The SS100 built between 1936 and 1941 is today regarded as one of the great pre-war sports cars, however, 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 15 years of production. In 1961, at the Geneva Motor Show, Jaguar introduced the E-Type, 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. And its not just about the looks as the E-Type is often at the top of other lists such as the best sports car ever built or the most significant cars. It is truly a motoring icon. As a testament to the success of the E-Type, production evolved through three series from 1961 until 1974 during which time circa 70,000 cars were built. Oldtimer Australia is delighted to offer for sale a factory left hand drive 1962 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 Fixed Head Coupe. This is no ordinary E-Type, it is essentially a race car for the road! The Jaguar Heritage Certificate confirms this example was manufactured on the 16th October 1962 with a date of despatch of 26th October 1962. The original distributor is noted as Jaguar Cars, New York, USA. The cars original colour scheme was cream with a black interior. The first owner is noted as Brown Grease Gun Co Ltd. The cars subsequent early North American history is not known, however, at some stage, it found its way to the Middle East. The current owner acquired the car in 2015 whilst living in Dubai from the local classic and exotic car specialist Tomini Classics. It is understood at that time the car had been recently repainted and was equipped with a 5.7 Litre Chevrolet engine in combination with a 5-speed gearbox. After acquiring the car, the current owner went on a journey to transform the car into a racing E-Type for the road. He wanted Lightweight E-Type performance from a car that could be reliably and comfortably used on the road. The Chevy engine had to go and the owner sourced a 3.8 litre Jaguar engine from Tester Engineering in the UK. A full synchromesh Jaguar gearbox was required and Tester Engineering also supplied that, which was from a Jaguar E-Type 4.2. The engine was completely rebuilt and it was certainly not a standard Jaguar 3.8 litre engine. It was rebuilt to full race specifications, a line honed block that was crack tested & heat treated, a machined & balanced crank shaft, which included new +40 liners, forged race pistons to provide an 11.5:1 compression ratio, Kent cam shafts, 1 inch race valves, race cam followers, side draft Weber 45 DCOE carburettors, a high flow oil pump and a dual point ignition. The engine came complete with the correct manifold & exhaust, an upgraded radiatorand associated plumbing. On the dyno the engine produced 326 hp at 6,000 rpm and 305 lb-ft torque at 4400 rpm. Tomini Classics was entrusted with installing the new engine and gearbox into the car. All this work was completed in October 2016 and at that time the odometer was showing 37,371 miles. A huge amount of money has been spent on the car and the engine alone cost around £25,000! To complete the look, a set of 72 spoke 6.0 x 15 wire wheels were purchased from MWS International Ltd in the UK and fitted to the car. In 2017 the engine and gearbox were removed from the car in order to upgrade the steering rack and the suspension. A new steering rack, upgraded sports suspension & torsion bars, a new drive shaft and upgraded brakes were all sourced from SNG Barratt and installed by Al-Futtaim Auto Centres in Dubai. The car was also upgraded with electronic ignition. In June 2020 the clutch was upgraded. A new clutch was sourced from M&C Wilkinson in the UK and installed by Al Tayer Motors in Dubai. To ensure the car could be used in the heat of Dubai, air conditioning needed to be installed. Clayton Classics in the UK supplied a complete air conditioning kit. This system comes with a slightly modified centre console. It works exceptionally well and blows ice cold air. Various other parts were sourced from SNG Barratt in the UK. The current owner moved to Australia and decided to bring his beloved E-Type with him. There is an import approval on file dated 12th November 2020. Since arriving in Australia, the car has been looked after by Brisbane based classic Jaguar specialist, Classic & Prestige Auto Services in Geebung. Prior to being delivered to Oldtimer Australia the car has been serviced. It should be pointed out the engine has a weeping core plug that will be repaired prior to the car being delivered to its new owner. As soon as you open the door it is apparent that this is no ordinary E-Type. There is a half roll cage and racing harness style seat belts. So . . . what is it like to drive? It is with great anticipation that you slide in behind the wheel. You buckle up, get acquainted with the driving position and the controls and then it is time to drive! Insert the key into the ignition, wait a few seconds for the fuel pump to do its work, then give the accelerator a few pumps, press the starter button and the engine immediately bursts into life with a guttural growl! Theres no choke needed with the triple webers. After a few seconds the engine settles into a smooth idle, yet even without having driven a single kilometre you can feel that this car means business. The engine has that edge that just begs the driver to get the car out on the open road! Patience is a virtue and the owner insisted that before driving you must let the engine warm up. That was like watching paint dry . . . fortunately the engine warmed quickly and were ready to go! After a short time you get this car . . . the driving experience is just something else. Out on the open road the car just wants to go, but you need to quickly back off as the car just wants to keep accelerating. Not surprisingly, the engine is strong and has plenty of power available throughout the entire rev range. This is one seriously fast E-type. You have to remember that you are on a public road and not at Silverstone! And the noise . . . it is just fabulous! The upgrades to the suspension ensure that the car is tight on the road, the gearbox is easy to use and the gear changes are smooth. The upgraded brakes work well and are more than adequate to pull the big cat up in a straight line as and when required. This car is for drivers and not polishers. That said, it still presents pretty well. Black suits this car perfectly and it contrasts beautifully against the chrome wire wheels and external trim. The paint work is quite presentable, but there are blemishes here and there. Most noticeable are the stone chips or gravel rash on the nose, which has probably been sand blasted by the Arabian winds as this car rocketed around the desert in the Middle East. Walking around the car you see that all the chrome work is in good condition as is all the glass and all the lenses, though there are a few scratches on the headlight covers. The wire wheels are a feature of this car and are in excellent condition. The interior presents well. The current owner has had the car re-trimmed with new bespoke leather. The upholstery is neat and tidy, though there is a small tear in the drivers seat. The rear compartment and the foot wells have been trimmed with diamond stitching giving the car a unique look. Alcantara has been used for the roof lining and the steering wheel. Importantly, all the instruments and controls are in working order. There is an aluminium briefcase strapped in the rear compartment finishing off the look of the car nicely. So what we have here is not your everyday Jaguar E-Type. This car will suit someone who wants to stand out in a crowd, someone who wants that something a little bit different and someone who wants to drive! This 1962 Jaguar E-Type Series 1 Fixed Head Coupe Fast Road is not for the faint hearted. It is a beast! And no, it is NOT matching numbers or finished in its original colour scheme and it does not have books or tools. Accompanying the car is a thick file of receipts for all of the work done to the car by its current owner. After enjoying his 6 year journey with this E-Type, the current owner is looking for a new project and as a result this car is reluctantly offered for sale. Highlights: - Desirable early Series 1 Fixed Head Coupe. - Upgraded to be a race car for the road. - 3.8 litre, full race spec engine mated to a full synchro gearbox. - Modern air conditioning to make the car usable all year round. - The ultimate drivers E-Type. Price $199,950
