1:43 Cream Jaguar SS 2.5 Saloon
JSS001 SS Jaguar 2.5 litre Saloon – cream
William Lyons launched the 2.5 litre saloon at the Mayfair Hotel in September 1935 The model was the first to carry the Jaguar name and cost £395. It was the first four-door car to come out of the SS Company and for the following two years, the Jaguars would have coach built bodies and wooden frames. By 1938, the car had been upgraded to include an all-steel frame – a Jaguar innovation amongst small specialist car manufacturers. The SS Jaguar 2.5 litre saloon remained in production until 1949, during which time 6777 had been produced for the discerning motorists of the period.
Our first release on this high-class prestige car comes in cream with fantastic chrome radiator and headlight detail, black hubs and cream spoked wheels. It is immaculate in every detail. Note especially the running board, spare wheel on the nearside in front of the passenger door – not to mention the 'suicide' doors, which were so elegant, although highly dangerous!
