Description

According to the Jaguar Heritage Certificate included in the sale, 'SPL 55' (the original registration was the Wolverhampton number 'VUK 987') was first registered to Jaguar dealer W M Hendrick of Walsall on May 3 1958, having vacated the Browns Lane production line on March 12. The Fixed Head Coupe's distinctive Orange bodywork is teamed with Brown interior trim and the Jaguar rides on painted wire wheels. It is understood the long term previous owner, a Mr Morton of Staffordshire, used the car for club racing. The most recent MOT certificate is dated 1991 and it is believed this could be the last time the XK took the road - whatever, it is now in need of restoration and priced accordingly. It is has the desirable SE specification and comes complete with green log book as well as the aforementioned Heritage Certificate. The odometer currently registers an unwarranted 78,000 miles.
