Synonymous with the swinging ‘60’s and the hit TV series, Inspector Morse, the Jaguar Mk. II Saloon has been used as a vehicle to transport everyone from dignitaries and politicians to bank robbers and the criminal select. Desirable due to being a well-balanced saloon car with space for four adults and a good size boot, it also boasted engine options including the mighty Jaguar 3.8 litre power unit; small wonder it became popular as a getaway vehicle. When released, traditional Jaguar buyers had no need to feel alienated by the new offering from Coventry as the interior was up to their usual standards with leather and walnut being the order of the day.
This Jaguar Mk. II was first registered on 16th December 1964 and presents in delightful condition. The red coachwork is in good order as is the interior trim. The 3.8 litre engine is mated to a manual gearbox with overdrive resulting in this being a great car to drive with ample performance and good roadholding. Sitting proudly on a relatively new set of chrome wire wheels, this Jaguar comes with a large history folder confirming it has been a well looked after example. The XK engine started on the button when requested and ran smoothly with good oil pressure, she is described by the vendor as driving with no known faults. The chromework on this Jaguar is in good condition, open the driver’s door and the aesthetically pleasing dashboard is also in good order. The history folder confirms the mileage of 25,771 back in 1970, it is thought the odometer reading of 66,114 is correct although this is not warranted. Supplied with a V5C registration document, this Mk. II 3.8 offers presence, style and comfort in abundance.
