1958 Jaguar 3.4 sa­loon

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Auction News -

With in­ter­est in the compact first-gen­er­a­tion Jaguar sa­loon on the rise, the de­mand for any pre­de­ces­sor to the Mk2 is strength­en­ing, and with good rea­son. Th­ese early cars are more en­gag­ing to drive and per­haps a lit­tle less re­fined. They’re also rarer and bet­ter look­ing. Brightwells’ ex­am­ple was on its fifth owner by 1964, but that per­son kept it for the next 41 years, with the cur­rent ven­dor ac­quir­ing it in 2005. The 3.4 en­gine is a re­built unit, while the body and in­te­rior is ‘largely orig­i­nal’, with ex­cel­lent panel fit and re­freshed blue paint. Steel wheels with Ace wheel­cov­ers are a pleas­ing pe­riod touch, as are the orig­i­nal alu­minium num­ber­plates. All in all, it’s a gem – and much nicer than a Mk2.
