$204,000 1948 coupe headlines classic Jaguar auction at Sandown Park

For classic Jag investors it doesn't get much better than Barons' annual Jaguar Heritage sale at Sandown Park, Surrey.

This year's event on April 19 will feature an exciting 1948 3.5-litre drophead coupé. It has been the subject of a meticulous, nut and bolt restoration.

Just 3,162 were built between 1945 and 1949. This right hand drive model left the factory on August 17, 1948.

To confirm the quality of the work, the car comes with official concours score sheets from the Jaguar Clubs of North America, where it consistently scored over 99.5 points with a best score of 99.82.

This 1948 Jag could make £125,000

This translates into a near perfect car for concours purposes. It has a high end estimate of £125,000.

A unique 1959 MKIX 6.0 saloon, which has been rebuilt at a cost of over £85,000, will also feature at the sale. It has been given a modern makeover to bring it up to current high performance car standards. It is expected to sell for £60,000.
