This stunning, low mileage and original Jaguar MKIX was supplied new by W L Thompson, Jaguar House, Hull on the 27th April 1961. 5680 AT was sold new for £2101 and this included just over £49 for the optional Reutter reclining front seat and a little less for a HMV radio complete with twin speakers and wind up aerial. The Jaguar was sold new to a gentleman in the Willerby district of Hull who owned the car for the rest of his life. He passed away in 1980 when the mileage from new was just 38,500 and it was two years later when the car was sold to its second owner in the South Cave area of Hull. It was purchased in totally original, lovely condition but due to the recent lack of use required some mechanical re-commissioning work. The new owner treated the car to full underbody rust proofing and fitted a stainless steel exhaust system. 5680 AT stayed with its second owner for 28 years and covered just 10,000 miles. In 2010 the Jaguar sold to a collector, also based in Hull who has covered minimal mileage in the car. The vehicle has now covered just 49000 miles and is a true time warp with wonderful original upholstery. The Red leather seats are fabulous, woodwork, carpets, door cards
