Evaluation: Restored in the 1990s for Archie Urciuoli with new front fenders (the original fenders come with it). Excellent paint, bright chrome, nearly new upholstery. Bright, clear gauges. Chassis restored like new. CCCA National First Prize winner #1892 and still looks the part. Impressively maintained since its late ’90s restoration and wonderful.
Bottom Line: The SS Jaguar 100 is the origin of the Jaguar legend where William Lyons’ design talent took full flight and was backed up by impressive power and performance. It is as pretty as any Alfa, Aston or Maserati of the era and makes, with apologies to Bentley lovers, a late R-R/Bentley look like a lorry. It is beautiful, and beautiful sells both in 1938 and in 2022. Gorgeous car, appropriate money.
