We’re constantly combing the internet in search of rare British cars, and every so often we find something truly worth buying. Most of the time, we can’t get to the car quick enough as other dealers are equally eager to snap them up. Last week, while doing our usual craigslist searches, we decided on whim to search for “SS Jaguar” and what we found blew our minds. A 1939 SS Jaguar 3 1/2 Saloon was for sale in Oregon! We immediately called the owner and struck a deal. An hour later, we were hitched up and on the road headed to Oregon to see what we had just bought. It was one hell of a journey, but it was well worth the effort once we saw the car. The car is all original and 100% complete. This rare beauty had been put into storage about twelve years prior and had not moved that entire time.
The car is now at its new home here at British Sports Cars, and we hope to have it back on the road in the next few weeks. Make sure to check back in to see how things are coming along and to see what other great British cars we’re working on.
Here are a bunch of photos we took as soon as we got it back to the shop. Click the “FS” button below to view the slideshow in full-screen mode.
