RealRides of WNY - 1955 Jaguar Mark VII

When RealRides reader Dave Truell wrote in and mentioned he had a 1955 Jaguar Mark VII, we couldn’t wait to get some photos. Even better, after bicycling over to his business, Buffalo Frame Repair in North Buffalo, we went for a ride in this original, Pastel Blue four-door sedan. This is not a car to ride around in if you’re trying to blend in with traffic! Everyone we passed pointed, stared, and smiled. The solid wood dashboard… the soft leather upholstery… that commanding chrome grille… I guess for the full British luxury sedan experience I should have ridden in the back seat! Dave bought this beauty in 2006, and has since rebuilt the master cylinder, as well as the dual carburetors (remember them?).
Thanks again, Dave.
