Barn Find Boosts Barons Classic Jaguar Auction Entry List

Wed, 10 Jun 2009
Barons Jaguar Heritage, Classic & Collectors' car sale takes place at Sandown Park on June 16th

Jaguar fans should find plenty to tempt them in Barons' Jaguar Heritage selection at Sandown Park on June 16th. With entries ranging from a genuine barn find 1938 SS 3.5 Saloon restoration project to a magnificent selection of concours-condition E-Types, whatever Jaguar you're into, Barons will probably have one on offer. There is also a chance that a genuine SS 3.5 Litre engine may be offered, which will be of great interest to owners of SS100 cars.

And if other marques are more your style, then Sandown Park is still the place to be on June 16th, as Barons' Classic & Collectors' section has something for everyone, from a pair of superb 1920's Rolls-Royce Landaulet Limousines to a beautiful Aston Martin DB6 ZF.

The barn found 1938 SS 3.5 Litre Saloon was parked in a barn in 1967 and has not been moved since. It is being offered by the late owner's family as a restoration project and is said to be a complete car. No attempt has been made to start the car and it is being presented in 'as found' condition. The vendors have fitted two new road wheels to aid removal from the barn, but it is otherwise as parked in 1967. The last tax disc expired in April 1967. The car is complete with all of the SS Badges, headlights, grill and hub spinners and is described as being 'an honest barn find awaiting resurrection'. Estimate: £17,000-20,000.

At least eight examples of the Jaguar E-Type will be on offer on June 16th, including a unique, semi lightweight SI E-Type FHC, which has undergone a nut and bolt restoration by Southern Classics. It has lightweight specification aluminium doors and bonnet, a Rob Beere 300 bhp, 4.2 XK engine, Triple 45DCOE Webers and a Hayward & Scott, FIA approved, 6 branch manifold & exhaust system. £60,000-80,000

A superb 1974 S3 Roadster which had a complete restoration, with panel work by RS Panels, new trim from Suffolk and Turley, SU Carburettor conversion kit from Burlen Services, and engine, gearbox and rear axle rebuilt by CFS Motors. It is offered with the original Passport to Service booklet, complete tool kit and all original handbooks. Estimate: £63,000-68,000.

An S1, 4.2 Roadster, with special order Golden Sand livery, was supplied to Jaguar Cars, New York in 1965. It has undergone a comprehensive restoration by The Carrosserie Car Company and was recently valued for insurance purposes by the Jaguar Enthusiasts Club at £63,000 and described as a 'numbers matching car of the highest quality'. Estimate: £50,000-60,000

A mass of other Jaguars will go under the hammer, including a 1962 MKII which has had a total refurbishment, with new outer panels and a bare metal repaint, reconditioned engine and a new wiring loom, fuel system, braking system and heating and cooling system. Much of the chrome work has been replaced or restored and the car has a Borg-Warner Type 35 gearbox and Vicarage rack & pinion power steering. £23,000-25,000

Notable entries in the non-Jaguar section of the sale include:

A 1967 Aston Martin DB6 Saloon with ZF, 5-speed manual transmission finished in Dubonnet Rosso with tan hide, the car sits on Borrani chrome wire wheels. With DB4 and DB5 cars now making up to £200,000 the DB6 is outstanding value for money, while still offering that beautiful Touring of Milan styling and dohc, straight six engine. Estimate: £76,000-80,000

The 1929 Rolls-Royce 20hp Limousine, with Landaulet coachwork by Hooper, was first owned by Mr. Richard Winkler of Edinburgh, who kept it until 1938 and whose children gave it the name BAPS. The car is in excellent condition and is offered complete with copies of the original build sheets and records of various works carried out. Letters from Mr Winkler's daughter, communication with the DVLA, Glamorgan County Council, RREC and interesting Daily Mail pages all add to the history of this 80 year-old lady.
