The Heritage certificate shows the car starting life at Henleys of London, with date of manufacture being 18th December 1961 and first delivery 10th January 1962. From there the car was sold and delivered to a wealthy farmer in Ladybrand, South Africa. Mr Albie Malan was well known for his expensive taste in motor cars. He was a very successful farmer and a very capable driver, known to travel from his farm to Bloemfontein in record time. Its believed that the car was then sold to the owner of Dorian Hats in Johannesburg during the 1980s. It was seldom used during its time in Johannesburg and is believed to have been kept for its looks. In 1988 the car was sold and shipped to a John Lawrence in Aukland, New Zealand. From then until 2015 the car was cherished with many MOT and Servicing invoices present in the cars history. In October 2015 its believed a David Malins sold the car on behalf of John to our client in London.
The Jaguar is currently undergoing a complete restoration. From the chassis to the smallest component, the car in being brought back to life with care and attention. The engine has been completely stripped and rebuilt by Jaguar specialists M&C Wilkinson. The body shell has undergone around 500 hours of work within our in-house fabrication department, working with replacement panels, but retaining as many original panels as possible. Our body shop has just completed painting the body shell, bonnet and various components in its original colour (Imperial Maroon). Of which, the shell is being taken to The London Classic Car Show on our stand B50 to showcase this motor car up to its current restoration stage. You can view the cars transformation up until this point on our website www.richardsofengland.com, which is regularly updated, detailing the ongoing progress.
Following the show the car will undergo a complete mechanical rebuild to the underside, suspension, brakes, axle/differential & engine bay. A dark red coloured Connolly Vaumol hide will be used on the bucket seats and centre console as original. To complete the interior, wool carpets and a traditional wool head lining will be fitted. All whilst retaining the original alloy dash and original wooden steering wheel.
