Lot 112: Jaguar S-Type 3.8
In 1964 Jaguar started producing the S-Type with a 3.4 or 3.8 engine specification. However the car which bared many resemblances to what had gone before had various subtle changes made to it, both mechanical and aesthetically which undoubtedly improved the car.
The mechanical changes were really placed on the set up of AC60cm and was also given independent all round suspension which significantly improved the handling and made it a much more response and fun car to drive. The engine was as ever capable of producing ample power with the 3.8 giving out 220bhp at 5,500rpm.
The body work was also changed slightly and had a much long rear boot tail and the spat was done away with making it much easier on the eye. The extended boot made it possible to store much more luggage making it a far more practical car all round.
This Jaguar S-Type was partially restored in the 1990s; however, work stopped before it was completed and some parts and paperwork have been mislaid. The bodywork is believed to have been restored and the engine and gearbox are believed to have been overhauled or replaced, however they have not been run for several years. Finished in white with a black hide interior, this an opportunity to acquire an excellent starting point for a restoration with a considerable amount of work already completed.
