Dealer Summary

Comments from the Dealer

SS90 Prototype Recreation 1936 British Racing Green with Tan Leather - Built on a SS1 Chassis - Aluminium over wood frame using Factory drawings. Gordon Doering of Olinda in Victoria, Australia, supervised the building of this vehicle between 1985 - 1995. Gordon is a Mechanical Engineer. The vehicle is a replica of the SS Cars Ltd experimental sports car of 1935 and is a faithful recreation of the original concept car, all work being based on factory engineering drawings. Comparison of this Doering car with photographs of the original and only prototype, which was for many years garaged in Switzerland and owned by Dr Christian Jenny, supports the reproduction accuracy. The vehicle was sold at auction last year for an undisclosed sum by Pendine Historic Cars of Oxfordshire UK. This sports car is built on an original SS1 chassis and features SS100 rod brakes and Jaguar 3.5 litre OHV engine and Moss gearbox. Coachwork is aluminium on timber frames with the original SS90/100 fittings throughout. It is finished dark Green in colour with Tan trim. Predecessor to the Jaguar SS100 - The Prototype was the only SS90 with the inbuilt Spare wheel space. The vehicle was purchased in 2005 from Gordon Doering and brought to Perth where JCC member, Derek Sealey, in consultation with SS expert Ed Nantes, organised and supervised further additional works to ensure that the vehicle is indeed a faithful replica of the original prototype. The car is now owned by Bill Johnson who uses the vehicle for club displays and outings. There were 23 - SS90’s built including the Prototype - 16 survive today. They were 395 pounds new.
