Description

- A later M version of the MKVII featuring LHD steering and manual transmission

- Sold new in Los Angeles, California, and repatriated in around 2011

- Comprehensively restored in England between 2011 and 2014 and finished in a most appealing colour combination

According to the Heritage Certificate on file this stately Jaguar MKVII is a later M version that was built on February 15th 1955 to LHD specification and despatched by the factory to the Los Angeles dealer Hornburg, in California. We understand it was repatriated in or before 2011 as it was comprehensively restored between 2011 and 2014, with bills for the work in the history file apparently totalling more than £36,000. We are told that the work was thorough and documented with photographs and included a rejuvenation of the engine (believed to be the car's original unit) and gearbox, as well as the brakes, wiring loom, and the interior. It was finished in a most appropriate navy blue and the interior was trimmed in light blue leather and navy carpets. After the work was complete the car was registered with the DVLA in March 2014. It is apparent that the car has had little use since the restoration and is described by the vendor as being in "excellent" condition with regards to its engine and gearbox, as well as its paintwork and interior trim.
