A unique Jaguar sports car which was converted into an estate style vehicle by its owner in the 1970’s to accommodate his two dogs, is due to go under the hammer at the forthcoming Bonhams Goodwood Revival Sale in West Sussex.

The classic Jaguar XK150 was extended by the owner and Jaguar enthusiast, Geoffrey Stevens, sometime in the mid 1970’s in order to accommodate his two Labrador dogs. Mr Stevens needed more room in his sports car to transport his dogs and so obtained a Morris Minor Traveller which he cut in half and attached to the rear of the Jaguar to create extra space for his animals.

The result is a strange hybrid of the two vehicles with the front comprising of the stunning classic Jaguar shape, while the rear morphs into a Morris Minor Foxbat. The sports car boasts the original 3.4 litre Jaguar engine, and yet offers the practicality of a saloon vehicle with the Morris Minor boot.

The vehicle left Britain after it was sold to a car enthusiast in France in the 1980’s, before it made its way back to the UK in 2008.

The unusual vehicle is thought to be the only one of its kind in existence and is expected to fetch between £30,000 and £35,000 when it goes under the hammer later this month.
