New Showroom for Classic Jaguars
Known by Jaguar enthusiasts worldwide as a top-league specialist, J. D Classics has just opened a second showroom in Maldon, Essex. The new, 5000sq.m sales area is housed in a two-storey building, bringing the total viewing area for customers up to 9000sq.m – well worth a journey to Maldon for anyone wishing to look lovingly at an extensive range of the very best XKs, E-types and Mk 2s.
“As a child I was given a toy, two-storey garage,” admits J. D Classics’ Managing Director, Derek Hood. “I simply loved it and vowed to myself that, one day, I would have my own, full-sized version. I think the wait has been worth it.”
The fulfilment of Derek Hood’s boyhood dream comes complete with high-tech fitments such as a hydraulic lift and, as well as providing sales, restoration and maintenance services for classic Jaguars, his company offers dedicated engineering and fabrication workshops; and is an accredited MoT centre. Hence J. D Classics can offer individual restoration advice, sports upgrades, prestige modifications and routine maintenance, all under one roof – plus an international collection and delivery service, incorporating customs clearance.
