The SS 100 Jaguar was built by SS Cars Ltd. of Coventry, England. The SS 100 is considered to be one of the most aesthetically pleasing Jaguar cars built as well as one of the rarest. Only 198 of the 2.5-litres were produced. Many original owners enjoyed the fact the SS 100 was intended for competition use, but was equally suitable for ordinary road use. This 1937 SS 100 Jaguar 2½-Litre Roadster is documented by its original sales ledger, sold initially by Layham’s Engineering Company, Surrey, England, to motoring journalist, Lawrence E.W. Pomeroy. In 1953, the car was acquired from Mercury Motors, of Wembley, by Harry Wolfe. Accompanying photographs on file are believed to date from Wolfe’s ownership. In 1958, this SS 100 then passed to Leslie Worley, of Sussex, who moved with the car to Malaysia. In his new home, Worley became an active vintage racer, eventually achieving the rank of president in the Malaysian Vintage Racing Club. His SS 100 was driven in an MSCC sprint in Kuala Lumpur as noted

The second owner was an Eric Cyril Boyd Edwards, later to become Lord Chelmer, who kept the car, usually at Bullwood Hall, until October 1947 when it passed to Cyril Abbott, a solicitor from Essex. Mr Abbott entered the Jaguar into a number of rallies at this time, including the JCC Eastbourne Rally of 1948 where he came 4th. The arrival of young children forced Abbott to find alternative transportation and by 1949 it had moved to Edward Curry, a friend of Abbott’s, who lived in Bexley in Kent. Mr Curry was a keen motor racing enthusiast and one of the first marshals at Brands Hatch and he duly pressed DLB135 into service as a track marshal’s car.
