Lot 108- Jaguar S-Type 3.4 Manual 1965
Estimated Value : £10,000 – £12,000
First registered in January 1965 this nice S Type has the desirable manual gearbox, giving its 3.4 liter engine a more “sprightly” performance over the automatic gearbox versions.
Last MOT,d in 2016 this car has been unused since, having only covered a mere 2300 miles according to its MOT history, since back in 2006. The MOT history also shows that the all-important welding repairs have been carried out over the years. Now the car is a nice solid example.
Paintwork, while it appears to of been refreshed at some point, will now require attention , but still polishes nicely and more than good enough if you want a car you can actually drive in our weather.
Interior is nice throughout. Leather is very good as is the wood on the dash and door capping’s.There is a period Motorola radio in place. Carpets are very nice and have obviously been replaced at some time.
Mechanically the engine starts easily and oil pressure is good. Gearbox and general transmission are good as are the electrics of the car (fuel gauge is reading full but unless the tank is, this could be incorrect).
