Jaguar service & repair in Kelowna
In 1922 the Swallow Sidecar Company was founded by two motorcycle enthusiasts William Lyons, and William Walmsley, they started building sidecars and coach-built cars on top of existing chassis seeing great success with models like the Austin 7 Swallow. After a few years with growing success in 1934 Walmsley would be bought out by Lyons and create the S.S. Cars Limited and in 1935 S.S. Cars would use the Jaguar name for the first time on the SS Jaguar 2.5L Saloon which started the Jaguar range of vehicles leading up to the 2nd world war when passenger vehicle production was halted.
Following the war there was a rather unpopular public opinion of “SS” and the company decision was made to change their name to Jaguar Cars to avoid any unfortunate comparisons. Following the change Jaguar started to make some world-renowned cars such as the XK120 which was the fastest production car available in 1949, and reclaimed that titled again in 1953 from the Pegaso Z-102 Touring which briefly held the title.
From the E-Type, JXS, XJR, S-Type and many more Jaguars heritage of making recognizable and legendary cars has kept them in the forefront of automotive lore since their inauguration.
