Motodrome are pleased to offer this beautiful 1965 Jaguar S-type 3.8 manual with overdrive. This one is a real rarity in that, whilst it underwent a comprehensive yet sympathetic restoration in 2003-04, it was never a rusted-out derelict wreck, hence retains it’s original red leather trim etc.

It’s owner since 1967 put it into dry storage in 1976 when he emigrated to Australia, from whence it emerged 25 years later, with minimal rusting etc. Nevertheless, it was completely stripped and the rusted areas cut out and professionally replaced, and the mechanics refurbished as required (including full-documented rebuild of the original engine) before being treated to a full bare-metal repaint in the original colour. We have over 60 photos of the car before and during it’s restoration.

it’s fitted with the later all-synchro gearbox, M & C Wilkinson electric rack and pinion power steering conversion, electronic ignition, alternator, kenlowe fan, stainless exhaust, AED bypass switch, rear seat belts, and period-style radio with iPod cable


It’s provenance and history are impeccable, and we believe the odometer reading of just 71000 miles is correct. We have everything from the original green logbook, the original service book with all entries up to 1975, the Jaguar ‘Owners Service Policy’ document, period promotional material, storage receipts, old MOT’s, and a big sheaf of invoices since it was exhumed and restored.
