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.'

The file for this Jaguar S-Type contains pictures showing the car in all its glory following, what appears to have been, a previous comprehensive restoration. The colour of the car is the classic combination of red with a beige leather interior. This 3.4 litre Jaguar does not run and requires attention but shows tremendous potential. Originally registered in February 1966, the DVLA website shows this car has only having two owners in its 54 years. This Jaguar is offered without reserve and the potential of a stunning car.
