1934 Jaguar SS1 Tourer with Matching Numbers

This 1934 Jaguar SS1 Tourer is a rare and exciting matching numbers car just out of a large collection. $40,000 documented engine rebuild and recently driven 750+ miles reliably. Offered with a Heritage Certificate and a thick folder of receipts and correspondence. New tires, hood sides, weather gear, and the original head all included. A very original car with correct hardware and gauges etc. It's a fast example, almost a "hot rod", which is happy at 55-60 mph on the flats. The restoration was likely done in the late 50's or early 60's. A very correct older restoration, nearly appearing original in regards to paina.  A CCCA full classic. Very thick folder of receipts and correspondence. Forerunner of the marque Jaguar from SS Cars Ltd of Coventry, the SS1 predated yet epitomised the later advertising slogan, Grace, Space, Pace. SS originally stood for the Swallow Sidecar & Coachbuilding Company, which had been founded in Blackpool, England by William Walmsley in 1922. The company branched out into motor manufacture in 1926. The SS1 was launched in October 1931 with a low under-slung chassis designed by Willliam Lyons. Lyons design for the body was startling: the SS1s excessively long bonnet, tiny passenger compartment and helmet-type front wings suggesting that it represented the ultimate in high performance. In so doing, the SS1 went some way towards establishing the pattern for future Jaguars, combining sporting good looks with a better-than-average specification and all at a bargain price.
