Lot 111: Jaguar MKVII Saloon
The MKVII was the first Jaguar to be promoted using the "Grace, Space, Pace" advertisement. First seen in 1950 the MKVII used the 3.4 XK engine with a four speed manual transmission and was a direct competitor to Rolls-Royce, Bentley. The model remained in production until being replaced by the upgraded MKVIIM in October 1954.This example belongs to a gentleman from Sheffield who is forced to sell through poor health. He is thought to be the 4th owner and bought the car on a whim when he saw the car parked in a driveway, because he had always wanted a MKVII. The original owner is said to have been a farmer from Nottingham.Finished in black with red leather, the car has the 3.4 litre XK engine, which is mated to a, 4 speed, manual transmission. The car is offered complete with the valuable registration RAC 998, service booklet, a pair of tool boxes and a set of snow chains. It is said to drive very well and is described as being in good to very good condition.
