Might Smoke A Little: 1959 Jaguar Mark IX Owned by Tommy Chong

I’m a sucker for a good celebrity owned pile of parts, so when a Jaguar Mark IX previously owned by Tommy Chong (of Cheech and Chong fame) shows up on a ebay…gotta post it. The car looks to aged about as well as the actor, which isn’t bad considering the abuse it has probably endured over the years. The current seller is offering it as-is in running but not road worthy condition, but I wouldn’t worry if it smokes a bit when you start it up…that’s not gonna change. Find this 1959 Jaguar Mark IX Owned by Tommy Chong bidding for $6649 in Winter Haven, FL via ebay.

From the seller:

This 1959 Jaguar Mk IX is a running and driving project finished in black with a brown leather interior. The original hood ornament is in place as indicated in the photographs. The tires on this car are older and there is cracking in the paint. Some of the chrome accents are loose as shown. The original California license plate that was shown in Motor Trend Magazine featuring Tommy Chong (Cheech and Chong) is attached in included with the vehicle purchase. The mileage shows just over 84000 miles, although I am not sure if these are the true miles. The former owner stated that they preformed a carburetor rebuild, replaced coolant hoses, serviced the brake master cylinder, and a full ignition tune up in 2011. I have personally driven this vehicle on my property to ensure it runs and drives but have not driven it in length to attest to the roadworthiness.

The interior does need some much needed cosmetic love as shown. Mr. Chong did sign one of the rear flip down tray tables. The signature has faded over the years but is still visible. This is a very beautiful barn find – selling it in as found condition, the pictures speak for themselves.
