Section B

The Collection of David Reilly 

David has achieved exalted "guru" status in the world of the classic S-type. Over the years, his regular newsletters have created a unique archive of knowledge and photos on these splendid Jaguars. I was delighted (and flattered) when he asked me to deal with his collection.

Customers of a certain age (i.e. my age!) will remember the still ads that used to appear in cinemas before the main feature film.

Estimate Price: (e£40-50)

These were usually from local companies whose budgets did not run to colour and certainly not to movies. This item was run by Hewitts Garages Ltd in Amblecote, between Stourbridge and Dudley in the West Midlands. It shows an S-type parked in the countryside, probably unique. Incidentally, although Hewitts are no longer at Amblecote, they are still very much in business in the Stourbridge area. Fine. Probably unique.


Another example of the still ads that used to appear in cinemas before the main feature film and again, from Hewitts.

Sold Price: £50.00

This time with an S-type parked in front of an office block. Fine. Probably unique.


The third in this trio of cinema ads.

Estimate Price: (e£40-50)

This one was run by Archers of Shirley and shows the same image of an S-type in front of an office block as above. Rare, probably unique. Fine.


This rather bland cover is for one of the rarest items here. It is the press folder for the Bertone-bodied “Jaguar FT” saloon that first appeared in the 1966 Geneva Motor Show.

Sold Price: £90.00

It started life as S-type chassis no 1B 78923 DN and was shipped to Italy for Dr Ferruchio Tarchini, the Milan-based Jaguar importer – the “FT” in the car’s title are Dr Tarchini’s initials. Press release in English, French, Italian and German. 12 photos and photocopies of details of two other Bertone Jaguar designs – the XJS-based Ascot and the E-type-based Pirana. Cover VG. Internals Fine.


A rare example of the booklets that Jaguar used at Browns Lane to track paint work.

Sold Price: £50.00

This one relates to an S-type, chassis no 54160 and is accompanied by a letter of verification from Paul Skilleter. Fine.


The S-type launch press pack. Unusually, this copy bears the embargo label.

Estimate Price: (e£40-50)

Equally unusually, it is the French version! Card-backed. 21 pages including – features, general description, general specs, technical specs, a brief history of Jaguar and two performance graphs at the back. No photos as these were supplied separately. Cover sl rubbed and some sl damp-warping internally o/w VG. French language editions are quite rare, especially with the Embargo label.


The S-type launch press pack.

Sold Price: £30.00

Undated but late 1960s. 12 x 8. Tri-lingual text English/French/German. The glossy card covers are bound in with a clear plastic slide. Lower left corner of front cover bumped. Rear cover edgy on left. Covers VG. Internals Fine. Rare.
