    Hi Guys,

    This thing has been on the local Craigs list for a while now. Today it was parked outside a local grocery store with a for sale sign on it, $2900. ?? But what is it?  Contact me if you need more intel. In the meantime here are some pics. Good luck ,

    John De Brit.

    The front looks to be a Jaguar SS-100
    or Mercedes Gazelle kit. The rest looks to be a TDr but can’t tell by not seeing the area behind the seats.

    Hi Ed,

    The sign says that its a Jaguar SS100 Replica, from the front it is a pretty good replica. From the doors back it loses its way as a Jaguar in a huge way. Interesting none the less.

    Looks like the seller combined pieces from leftover kits to make this. Not very appealing IMO…

    This needs to be out in the Hamptons or maybe the Carolina barrier islands. It is–or could be–an answer to all those w**kers stocking their summer cottages with Fiat Jollys to transport them to the club or the pier.

    Paint it cream. In small, discrete letters along the door tops, paint the name of your summer compound, or your yacht.

    Wicker seats, and a very big, broad top with little pom poms hanging down from it. Put the “correct” (for an SS100) Monster headlights on it. Small Oak bumpers, finished with spar varnish. Wicker dash. Just the one big gauge from an old VW. 90 mph speedo with a fuel gauge in it. Wicker/straw floor mats over truck bed liner-sprayed steel floors. 

    get a Flat 4 banjo steering wheel and either paint the spokes or cover them with straw. 
    Here are the wheels. I’d go as wide as possible since you’re on the beach. 
    Of course, get rid of those heat register vents in the back. Should have an aluminum cover with six sets of louvers running the length of it. 
    Equip the front trunk with a huge cooler for beer, wine, sangria, etc. Basically, when you pop the hood the effect should be of looking into a chest freezer people used to put in their cellars and fill with beef.
    That should about do it.

    Not a Gazelle.

    It is an SS 100 Jaguar, but I’m not able to tell what manufacturer.

    There were only a couple. But it does not appear to be either a Classic Roadsters Ltd Duke nor an Antique & Classics.
