Description: 1939 Jaguar Tourer SS100
VIN/Chassis No. 1232201
Engine No. L60

The SS100 Jaguar is, arguably, one of the most beautiful sports cars ever produced. In keeping with Sir William Lyons philosophy, Finch have recreated this magical car to original legendary specifications.

As a motoring enthusiast, Finch was captivated by the elegance and design of vehicles of this era and to that end, endeavoured to recreate this vehicles as faithfully as possible.

Very little has been compromised to the original specification and these handbuilt cars provide exceptional, and perhaps the finest, old-world sports car driving pleasure.

The chassis is fabricated as designed by Rubery Owen, using Jaguar's original factory drawings. Front and rear axles are period Jaguar assemblies, kindly donated by deceased SS and Mk 4 saloons.

Engines (2.5 and 3.5 litre) and gearboxes are also original Jaguar units. All original components are painstakingly stripped and restored in our workshops to their former gory. Original SS components are procured wherever possible and, of course, when they are available.

Patterns and jigs have been constructed to form and or cast the necessary windscreen stanchions, headlight bars, hood bows, etc.

The body frame is of timber construction, clad in aluminium. Guards are also of aluminium construction.
Lucas electricals and original specification looms are used throughout. The interior is trimmed to the original specification.
