JAC Spring Auction Launches!









We are delighted to be able to announce the launch of Ian Cooling’s Jaguar Automobilia Spring auction – at last!

The fully illustrated on-line catalogue is available on this link –
https://www.jaguarautomobilia.com/auction/ If you have any problems connecting, just mail Ian at ian@jaconline.co.uk


The auction will close at noon, UK time, on Monday 18 May 

There are over 1000 lots on offer ….. something in here for everyone!

The stand-outs are in the first Section – Section A – the Collection of Norman Dewis OBE. Ian was hugely flattered to be asked to handle this sale by Norman’s son and daughter and it contains real gems, more than a few unique.


There are many items from Norman’s career as a competition and test driver – race suits, helmets, boots and goggles. Three rare items of D-type literature, one an original handbook from the 1950s. The unique hall-marked silver cigarette case commemorating Norman’s world-record Jabbeke run in 1953. A different stand-out is Norman’s own Scalfaro “Geneva” watch – unique and highly collectable.
The star in the main body of the catalogue has to be the superb 1:8 scale scratch-built D-type model hand-crafted by Len Pritchard – 16 inches long and very heavy! Len was a founding partner of Williams & Pritchard who created a whole generation of Lotus bodies. He later worked on Nigel Moore’s D-types, which he loved. This is a wonderful opportunity to acquire a superb example of the art of one of the finest metal-workers of his generation.
And from elsewhere – a sterling silver SS Cars desk lighter and SS Cars handbooks, brochures and instruments. Original XJ220 artwork, handbook, parts list, steering wheel and rear aerofoil. A group of interesting Jaguar keyrings. An XK150 radiator grille and Version 2 mascot still in their original factory wrappings from the 1950s, probably unique.


All this and up to 100 late entries coming up soon in Section Z.

Every business needs new customers and if you are joining Jaguar Automobilia Collector for the first time, Ian suggests you have a look at the advice under the Guidance tab at the top of the page. If you have not bid in a Distant auction like this before, the note on the Bidding Process may be especially helpful.

In this as in everything else, if you have any queries just mail Ian at ian@jaconline.co.uk
There is always a massive flurry of incoming mails at launch time, but Ian will be aiming to reply within 48 hours. However, if he does take longer especially in the early days, please bear with him.

It is Ian’s hope you find browsing his catalogue both interesting and enjoyable – as well as prompting a bid or two.
