This is a Sad story of a once-loved Jaguar, as the car had been left so long its was simply not economical to repair, although at Classic Car Buyer we buy almost any car and rarely turn any away.
This was another chance’ find like so many of our cars, being in the right place at the right time.
A delivery drive dropped off some parts at Classic Car buyer HQ and we got talking, he mentioned a Jag parked in barn, I obviously showed some considerable interest, and after a few minutes chatting the driver he gave me a rough idea where the car was.
It was over a year that had passed since he’d last seen it, so It wasn’t guaranteed it was still there.
Not to be put off, like most barn find sightings, they always take priority over everything else, so the hunt was on, we immediately jumped in the Landrover Discovery and headed to the location, at first we thought it was a lost cause and maybe another dud sighting of the elusive Loch Ness Monster of barn finds, then I spotted it, lurking in the bushes like a Jaguar in the wild ready to pounce.
It was more under a barn than in it, but sure enough there it was, a Blue Jaguar 3.4 MK II.
