1956 JAGUAR MKI 2.4 SE SALOON (Manual with overdrive) This elegant classic British Sports Saloon is finished in Jaguar glossy black with full red leather trim and polished walnut cappings. This 66-year-old car has had 8 former keepers and has covered only 66000 miles from new. The vehicle was fully restored by the famous Cooper Craft Company some years ago and used as a demo vehicle. It had a full nut and bolt restoration from the ground up, with a change of colour to black, special wire wheels fitted and also fitted with disc brakes all round by the Cooper Craft Company. There is a full photographic record of this interesting restoration. This car has been very well preserved since then. It is very good underneath having had the benefit of being waxoyled to offer protection and is now offering a very lovely patina.
