Tag Archives: Swallow Doretti

Behold: the 1954 Swallow Doretti – a two seater roadster made for the US market by a former motorcycle sidecar manufacturer that would eventually rebrand as Jaguar.

Fitted with the motor and gearbox of a Triumph TR2, the Doretti had tight handling, Italian pretentions and a top speed of 160 km/h.

Only 276 were made between 1954 and 1955 and this fully restored, factory correct survivor goes under the hammer next May.
