Sir David Jason's Jaguar for saleFri, 20 Dec 2013 00:00:00 -0800
ONLY FOOLS and horses would normally buy an old Jaguar XJS, but it doesn’t take Inspector Morse to work out that owning this one would be just Granville.
This is, of course, the luxurious old Jag that once belonged to much-loved actor Sir David Jason, who starred in some of Britain’s most successful and enduring TV series.
It’s set to go under the hammer with Anglia Car Auctions at the King’s Lynn auction house in Norfolk on January 25.
It’s an excellent 1991 example of the car, finished in burgundy, with cream leather upholstery and a 4.0-litre six-cylinder engine under the bonnet. You know it makes sense.
Originally registered to David Jason Entertainment, and then to David White, the actor’s real name, J906 SBL has had just one further owner in the interim years.
It will be sold in excellent roadworthy condition and has a fresh MoT certificate to take it through to December 2014.
The estimate on its head is a very reasonable £5,500 to £6,500, which will come as lovely jubbly news to any keen collector.
The auction costs £75 to attend with a buyer and seller fee of 5%. Details of the auction’s full contents can be found at the Anglia Car Auctions website.
