Lot 266 - 1966 Jaguar S-Type Saloon (3.8 litre)
|Odometer reading||32,186 miles|
|Estimate||£7,000 - £9,000|
Produced from 1963 to 1968, the Jaguar S-Type was technically a more sophisticated development of the Jaguar Mk. II, offering buyers a more luxurious alternative. It was available with either 3.4 or 3.8 litre XK engines and featured longer rear bodywork among other styling and interior changes. Despite its extra weight, the S-Type's independent rear suspension allowed it to corner faster than the Mk. II, especially on uneven surfaces, providing better traction and a much smoother ride for rear seat passengers with the consensus that the S-Type offered significant improvements over the Mk. II in road holding, safety and ride comfort. It was described as "a convenient family car, a businessman's express, a sports coupé and a grand tourer."
This Jaguar S-Type is in need of some work and attention; however it is basically a sound vehicle and offers great potential. We have been advised that the gearbox needs attention, it only engages first gear and reverse and we would recommend any interested parties to come and view the vehicle in person. Finished in light blue metallic with beige leather trim and supplied with a V5C registration document, this 3.8 S-Type could prove to be a wise purchase.
