Lot 327 - 1962 Jaguar Mk. II (2.4 litre)
|Odometer reading||77,792 miles|
|Estimate||£11,000 - £15,000|
The Jaguar Mk. II is a medium sized saloon car built between 1959 and 1967 in Coventry as successors to the Jaguar 2.4 litre and 3.4 litre models manufactured between 1957 and 1959. These retrospectively became known as the Jaguar Mk. I following the release of the Mk. II in 1959. One of the most readily recognised cars of the period thanks in part to countless appearances in films and on television, Jaguar's Mk. II saloon set the standard for the class throughout its entire production life and today remains highly prized by enthusiasts. Although ultimately not as fast as its larger engined 3.4 and 3.8 litre siblings, the 2.4 litre Mk. II possesses all the style and refinement associated with Jaguar's classic saloon, while cruising comfortably in present-day traffic on motorways.
This Jaguar Mk. II was despatched from Browns Lane on 8th August 1962 and shipped to Brysons in Australia. She spent all of her life in Australia before being repatriated to the UK in 2017. The Jaguar Heritage Certificate confirms this to be a genuine righthand drive example and is also matching numbers. Our inspection confirmed this to be a very sound Mk. II showing no significant signs of corrosion or having had any major repair. The gunmetal paintwork is cracked a little in places, presumably from spending too many years in the sun. The red leather trim is in good order and we can only describe this 2.4 litre Jaguar as being a genuine perfectly useable example. She is supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate valid until 8th October 2018.
