Jaguar SS Airline Saloon 1935
This sensational 1935 SS Airline Coupe is the forerunner of the famous SS100 and Jaguar XK 120. The Swallow company was started in 1922 by William Lyons and William Walmsley building motorbike sidecars and after 1927 car bodies for many makes including Austin 7's. The first SS cars were produced in 1931 using mostly mechanical components supplied by the Standard Motor Company.The famous SS or Swallow Sport was built with a special low slung chassis with a 2 litre or a 2.5 litre side valve 6 cylinder engine. Available in 3 body styles, a 4 seater Tourer, Sedan or the rare Airline coupe body. The Jaguar name was not used until after 1936. Only 4,200 SS cars were produced.
This exceptionally rare 1935 SS Airline Coupe is the upgraded Second Series with twin SU Carburettors and high lift camshaft. This car was sold new in Derby, UK to Mr B. Jobson in May 1935, we believe it came to Australia in 1937, owned by the late Jack Jeffries until the early 40s, restored by Ron Campbell who owned it for over 20 years. it passed on to Bryson Industries who used it for promotional purposes (Bryson were the Australian Jaguar Distributors), the Airline has been part of the Rainsford family collection since 1978, most of this time on display at the National Motor Museum at Birdwood in South Australia.
This magnificent car is complete and extremely original, it requires recomissioning as it has not been driven in over 30 Years. We believe this is one of only a few survivors, a very special opportunity.

This beauty is the most special Jaguar SS of all and the only genuine SS100 Fixed Head Coupe produced, one of the few Jaguar Crown Jewels.

1938 Jaguar SS100 3.5L
This car is believed to be a real SS100 and in lovely condition. But there is no identity or evidence which can provide any proof of the correct original identity!!
We took her as part exchange and don’t want to be involved in clearing the dubious missing identity matter.
Comes without history and therefore very reasonable priced.
Offered as is and without any guarantee.
Price estimation Sterling 170.000,-

Jaguar coachbuilt the first alloy bodied XK120 Super Sports roadsters. 240 cars were built, with 70 built in 1949 and the remainder built in 1950. In 1950 Pressed Steel had completed the dies for the steel bodied XK120, and Jaguar went on to make it a production car. Interestingly, almost no body panels from the coachbuilt aluminum XK120 are interchangable with the steel bodied production car. Here is a photo of #670069, my never restored 1949 Alloy XK120 Super Sport.
