Roadster
Chassis #: 878978
Engine #: RA 1010-9
Gearbox #: EB 9208 JS
High bid of $97,500 at 2012 RM Auctions - St. Johns, Michigan. (did not sell)
Jaguar produced just 2,023 open two-seat roadsters during 1963. This example was completed on January 28th of 1963 and is a left-hand drive example. It was dispatched to Jaguar Cars New York on February 7th of 1963 and its first owner was T.J. Mattoen of New York. In 2008, it received a complete rotisserie restoration by marque specialists. Since that time, it has traveled just 600 miles. The car is a numbers matching example which has been confirmed by its Jaguar Heritage Certificate. The car has its original tool roll with Metallifacture jack and new hammer, over $100,000 has been spent on the restoration, including an engine, transmission, rear end, and suspension rebuild. The car is finished in cream over red hides with contrasting black hood.

In 2012, the car was offered for sale at the St. Johns sale presented by RM Auctions. It was estimated to sell for $125,000 to $150,000. Bidding reached $97,500 but was not enough to satisfy the vehicle's reserve. It would leave the auction unsold.
