The Mk. II Saloon sums up the Jaguar ethos in one simple design; timeless lines, luxurious interior leather seating, burr walnut dash and a superb 3.8 litre power plant underneath that most elegant of bonnets finished off with the classic leaping cat. The fine road manners proved useful both off the track and on it with many podium finishes during the 60s and indeed right up to the present day. Indeed, a popular choice at the Goodwood Revival.
Supplied as an original UK model with the correct 3.8 engine combined with an automatic gearbox, it has since been upgraded to a manual unit with overdrive, this righthand drive model was restored prior to and upto the 1990s by a renowned local Jaguar engineer in Oxfordshire. The seats and trim were purchased from Aldridge Trim and fitted although there are no invoices for all works carried out over the years. This includes new Dunlop brakes, front suspension, steering and bushes as well as new dampers front and rear. The radiator was re-cored and all associated pipework replaced. It now carries a re-furbished cylinder head with rebuilt carburettors, a new clutch and associated hydraulics and a Jaguar synchromesh gearbox. Overall, the condition is good, although a little finishing is required, and the car sits well on its correct 72 spoke wire wheels and new Michelin tyres.
The health and safety of both our customers and team remains the utmost priority, we are therefore operating to Government guidelines throughout viewing and auction day.
