213 Jaguar 2.4 Fire Chief's Car

60 GBP

The first version which came out in 1959, based on the existing Jaguar 2.4. Finding one of these with the complete roof element took a while! So many are missing the bell.

This is in good condition, just a few paint chips but not at all bad and the wheels are good as are the screens and silverwork.

It has always struck me as a bit odd that Fire Chiefs would have had a Jaguar and I really don’t remember seeing anything like this at the time but I guess some lucky guys must have had them.

The roof element is the same as used on the Riley Pathfinder police car.
