Our good friend Heinz Schendzielorz has exclusively send us many of his personal images for use in Jaguar Magazine – he having started a Jaguar magazine in the early 1970s.
We have picked out just three as a tempter here, but you will get the drift pretty quickly!
Everyone knew then these three cars were very special, but in an era when there was no internet they just seemed to appear, and nobody really knew their individual histories.
Take these three!
Costin bodied Lister Jaguar VPP9 was one of two works entries at Le Mans in 1959. When this shot was taken VPP9 meant nothing, and nobody really knew anything about it – not even the owner!
Then there was this ex-Ecurie Ecosse C-Type which was dead original and chassis XKC042. It lived a very quiet life in Adelaide, came out occasionally, then went unseen.
And then there was Bob Jane’s D-Type XKD532. It had no more than three or four minor races in its life, had never been damaged and was ‘as built’.
Now they have all returned to Europe and are worth a fortune!
These are the types of special images we pride ourselves on and makes our publication different to others. You will also read their fully histories which are always fascinating.
Happy reading in 2020.
