JaguarType D 1956 Beechcraft.psd
If one has an abiding interest in classic cars then there is a very good chance that they are already aware of the Jaguar Type D. The legendary sports car from 1956 is one of the most desirable specimens from the history of car manufacturing. It is not difficult to see why. Developed by Pininfarina, the automobile company from Italy, it was one of the first sports cars to feature air suspension and it featured a stretched flat roof. This classic automobile also featured a front wheel that rolled down over the tailpipe. While these features are the hallmark of any true sports car, it is interesting to note that the Jaguar used some of the same styling elements as well. The exterior was marked by sharp squared headlights with two sets of slightly curved light-filters and two large chrome side lights.
As is the case with many of the best classic cars of this period, the Jaguar Type D featured a luxurious interior. The seats were upholstered in plush materials and the dashboard had large, decorated instrument panel. Up front, the engine contained twin screw discharge ignition and it featured side steps. Beneath was fiberglass reinforced plastic oar shell which protects the engine from damage. All the controls were located in the center of the oarshelf and the seats themselves reclined slightly towards the back of the car.
