Supplied via Jaguar Cars, New York in January 1959, this original ‘S’ Roadster is the perfect driving enthusiast’s XK Roadster. A factory built S, it was the subject of a complete body off restoration in the 1990s. Since then, it has received a whole host of sensible upgrades to make it a very versatile long-distance cruiser. These upgrades include the fitting of a 5 speed gearbox, a JD Classics ‘Sport Fast Road’ brake kit, a Guy Broad polybush and anti-roll kit, an aluminium radiator, stainless exhaust and a whole host of other smaller items. In June of this year, it was the subject of a thorough, comprehensive service and tune up, ensuring it a super driving example. Complete with jack, tool kit, grease gun, Owners Handbook and history file, this is an ideal car for a post-Covid tour of Europe this summer.
