We have a splendid Birchfield SS 100 Replica. The car has a steel frame base under an aluminium body and contemporary Jaguar XJ6 mechanics. It has a 4.2-litre straight-six attached to a manual transmission. This car most likely represents the best 100 SS Replica in the world. The car was exported as an unfinished kit to Australia, where it was completed with maniacal precision. This resulted in very high quality, brilliant looking car. It has a Green over Tan finish and looks a peach.

The bodywork is splendid. The panelwork is nice and thin with correct alignment. The attention to detail jumps out at you at first sight. In good British tradition, the car is embellished with plenty of well-maintained chrome. The bumpers and lights are impressive and perfectly suit the car. There are wire wheels shod in good quality and correctly sized rubber. The wheels beautifully fill the space below the grand sculpted wings. The hood is in good shape and was custom made for this particular car and is heavy-duty. The luggage rack finishes off the image nicely.

Inside is beautifully appointed with fine green carpets and tan leather with green piping. The craftsmanship and use of the finest quality material here are of an astonishing level. The interior is simply stunning. The Smith counters as encountered in other Jaguar models are all present and correct.

The mechanical side of things are all derived from the first Jaguar XJ6 generation. The 4.2-litre straight-six is attached to a manual 4-speed gearbox. The flawless mighty engine cries out with

a turbine-like howl so characteristic of a straight-six. The transmission shifts gear in a precise fashion with fine gear ratios. The SS 100 Replica is of course considerably lighter than a Jaguar XJ6, meaning this is one seriously fast motor. The brakes are also out of the Jaguar XJ6 and are more than capable again thanks to its low weight. The gear ratios are actually not that relevant. The engine develops so much torque that you never have to struggle. An abundance of pulling power and performance is at your service throughout the range. An added advantage of having a car like this is the ready availability of spare Jaguar parts. Servicing again is an easy job for any Jaguar specialist.

The car comes with a description of the car’s provenance and history. This is a stunning Jaguar SS100 Birchfield Replica with the sought after manual transmission.
