Barons’ Jaguar Heritage Sale at Sandown Park 27 April 2010 - Preview



1962 Jaguar E-type SI 3.8 FHC left-hand drive - £28,000 - 34,000

In this, the 75th anniversary of the Jaguar name, Barons has put together an excellent selection of cars from the last seven decades for its annual Jaguar Heritage sale at Sandown Park on 27 April.

Among the star turns is a 1933 SS1 Coupé, one of just 1099 produced. Finished in its original coffee and cream colour and fitted with the proper R.A.G. carburettor, plus the wipers driven from the gearbox, the car is said to have all its original running gear. It carries an estimate of £70,000 – 90,000.

Other highlights include two 1948 Saloons – a 1.5 and a 3.5. The 1.5 (£27,500-30,000) was for many years an exhibit in the History of Jaguar museum in Maldon, Essex, until it became part of a private collection. The 3.5 Saloon, meanwhile, finished in silver (£42,500-50,000) is very similar to the silver 1947 3.5 Saloon for which Barons achieved £62,450 in December 2009.

“It is most unusual to find these cars for sale but to have offered two at the same venue within five months, both of which were originally supplied to Australia and both finished in silver, is quite extraordinary,” said Barons’ MD, Laurence Sayers-Gillan.

Meanwhile, there is no lack of E-types, including three S1 FHCs and two S3s – a 1971 FHC, the third to roll off the Browns Lane production line and Jaguar’s press test car (£17,000-20,000), and a magnificent 1973 S3 roadster, rebuilt by Vicarage (£78,000-85,000).



1959 Jaguar XK150 FHC - £35,000 - 45,000


1982 Aston Martin V8 S3 - £20,000 - 25,000

Among the several XK150s is a 1958 XK150SE DHC auto, completely rebuilt, including a full re-trim in Connolly red leather with black piping and a new mohair hood. The estimate stands at £60,000-70,000. And then there’s a ‘barn find’ XK140 (currently without estimate), described as “an organised basket case of parts, which include the main structure and a host of various components”. The body and chassis, we’re told, appear to be sound but, given the description, we must assume that the car is incomplete and would require considerable determination (and money) to take on as a project. Nevertheless, for the right enthusiast, at the right price…

Finally, there are some intriguing automobilia – such as the perfect registration number for an E-type owner – ‘ET 38’ (£14,000-20,000); and the Black Cat mascot, said to be the first prototype of a redesigned mascot commissioned by William Lyons himself. Barons cannot confirm the rumour that this was Sir William’s personal paperweight, but it’s a nice thought, and I can’t help thinking the estimate of £250 to 500 is on the low side.

The Barons 27 April sale will be held at:

Sandown Park Exhibition Complex, Esher, Surrey KT10 9AJ
