Debut Jag takes pride of place; FIRST X-TYPE IS PURR-FECTLY POISED AS STAR OF MUSEUM SHOW.

THE first Jaguar X-type to roll off the Halewood production line is star of the show at a new exhibition at the Museum of Liverpool Life at the Albert Dock .

The X1 is on display with the first car to be built by Halewood fitters - a 1963 Ford Anglia 105E. The Ford was ceremonially driven off the production line by the Lord Mayor of Liverpool.

It was won in a competition by a Mr Taylor but bought back by Ford three years later and donated to National Museums and Galleries on Merseyside.

Other vehicles on show at the Cars and Boats and Bikes and Things exhibition include a Merseyside Police BMW motorcycle, a 1902 Davies horse-drawn oil tanker, a bathchair made by Adeline Watt of Speke Hall around 1900.

The exhibition runs until September 8.
