Ian Callum Rebuilds Classic Jaguar

A MKII Gets A Modern Day Makeover

Ian Callum (Jaguar's Chief Designer) has been getting a lot of well-deserved attention from Jaguars newest addition, the F-Type, but Callum is working on a new addition of his own. Classic Motor Cars (CMC) has been assigned the task of building Callum his very own classic Jaguar, the MKII. Callum commented on his love of the classic saloon: "To me, the MKII is one of the best looking saloons ever created but as a designer, naturally I want to change a number of details. For that reason, the car that CMC have chosen as donor car will be modified in many areas - both aesthetically and technically." Changes we will be very interested to see.

As a young boy Callum had always had a fondness for the MKII as he states: "This is the first classic Jaguar I have ever owned, I have greatly admired the Jaguar MKII since I was a boy. Now I have the chance to 'build' one to my exact design specifications." Not only is Callum excited for the prospect of owning this classic, but CMC could not be more thrilled to have the opportunity to build one to his exact specifications. Nick Goldthorp (Managing Director of CMC) commented on the partnership: "We have carried out many special projects for clients all over the world, but this is one of the most exciting that we have ever undertaken. We are delighted that Ian came to us."

Classic Motor Cars has been around since 1993 and are leader in the Jaguar restoration business. They are recognized worldwide. Based in Bridgenorth, Shropshire, CMC can perform any type of service for clients including full restorations to even just a simple oil change. Callum's project is sure to be one CMC will never forget, but in the meantime check out their website for current updates on the project: www.classic-motor-cars.co.uk.
