1957 Jaguar 3. 4 Mark 1 Mike Hawthorn Tribute.
Fully restored to concours standard
Authentic uprated ‘works’ Mark 1 of the late Mike Hawthorn.
Uprated 3. 4 engine
Very rare Twin Sand cast SU Carbs
Close ratio Moss 4 speed manual gearbox with overdrive.
Uprated 4-pot front callipers.
Body coloured 15 inch wire wheels/ Dunlop tyres.
Without doubt this is one of the most professional and detailed restorations that have been undertaken by Mike Hawthorn expert, Paul Roach, who has been building Hawthorn replicas since 1988. The chrome work on the car has all been refinished to a better than new standard which reflects beautifully the stunning paintwork.

Finished in magnificent British Racing Green with Suede Green Connolly leather interior and matching wilton carpets. The woodwork has been perfectly refinished in the correct Satin lacquer finish to an outstanding standard.

The specification includes a rebuilt back axle with a 4. 09:1 ratio as used by the ‘works’. The 3. 4 Litre engine was fully rebuilt and also modified to Hawthorn specification, The car also features an incredibly rare Twin SU carburetors.

The gearbox is the same close ratio four-speed (with overdrive) Moss unit and the front brakes were enlarged as per the original car VDU 881. The car features body-coloured wire wheels that have increased the overall track by two inches, stiffer suspension and a custom made exhaust manifold that replicates the one originally designed by the staff at the TT Garage in 1958. The attention to detail is further exemplified by the inclusion of other modifications that Hawthorn specified such as the aftermarket rear window demister, an auxiliary reversing lamp, Raydot spot lights and a period correct ‘Pye’ radio.

Now offered fresh from its multi-year rebuild, it provides a wonderful opportunity to acquire one of the very best recreations of Mike Hawthorn’s famous Mark 1 Jaguar that delivers fantastic performance in the spirit of the original.
