The car was originally owned by a one-star military general and eventually sold to a couple who restored the interior and painted it “Bentley Champagne”.
The vehicle was maintained locally by a Jaguar specialist but then sat nonoperational for 5 years.
Under Hughes, it underwent a comprehensive mechanical service to the tune of several thousand dollars by a renowned Jaguar restoration team.
The vehicle was sold running with all manuals and documentation.
It was purchased sight unseen by a New York collector.
