1939 Jaguar SS 100 DHC

Coach built by Newsome-Avon

1995 Jack Hilton sells the 2 Avon bodies to Dick Strever less chassis.
The decision is made to strip all parts to bare metal,
find a donor car for running gear & misc. chassis parts.
The bare metal shows just how much work will be needed, 
a 1939 3 1/2 ltr engine is found & a new chassis is built
the following 6 years progress is shown below
