The SS Jaguar 3 ½ was first introduced in 1938 as the marques flagship luxury limousine model and a 4-seating alternative to the legendary SS 100.
This model was also the first to receive the Jaguar moniker as well as the original SS badging before it was discontinued due to WWII. The model was marketed as an owner driver alternative to the cumbersome limousines offered by Rolls-Royce, Bentley and Mercedes-Benz whilst still offering a comparative level of luxury. The 3.5L engine produced 125bhp and a top speed of 95mp/h.
Of the 1,304 models that were produced, it is estimated that less than 150 received the drop head coupe coach work.
This vehicle was originally delivered to Adelaide, South Australia in early 1939 shortly before the commencement of WWII, it is believed to be 1 of only 6 sent to Australia from the factory. It was once owned by a prominent classic car collector in Goolwa, South Australia.
Today it presents in largely original and unrestored condition with the original engine and interior still intact. It has had an earlier respray in its original black some years ago.
This presents an excellent opportunity to purchase a very rare piece of motoring history and is the only known example offered for sale currently in the world.
