When you see this Jaguar S-type 3.8 Liter from 1966, the tears fall in your eyes. After a carburetor fire, the Noble Predator (for punishment?) Had to spend at least three decades outside in the open air. Nature had taken care of it. The owner of this fine goods died, the heirs wanted to cash in as quickly as possible and thus 'rubble' was cleared.

A car breaker was called in that dug out the Jag, charged it and luckily did not let it slide into the Oud IJzer container. Restoration was not economically justified, but in terms of parts it is a treasure. The 3,8 liter engine, for example, the manual gearbox with overdrive, the differential with housing and brake installation, for example, can be placed under a Jaguar XKE. Grill, power steering, suspension, dashboard, are all suitable for another Jaguar. Everything of course after a thorough recovery. The car breaker did not want to 'peel' the thing but sell it whole. Price: £ 750. Not even a thousand euros ... The whole is - probably now 'stood' - in the British town of Diss.

It will be clear to you, economically responsible restoration is not an option ...!

  1. Ls,
    I accidentally found the article about the S-type in Dill.
    Is the address of the scrap yard / the place where the S was located known to the editors?
    I am restoring one and can still use it.
