Synonymous with the swinging 60s and the hit TV Series Inspector Morse, the Mk. II was undoubtedly the most admired Saloon to emanate from Jaguar's hallowed Browns Lane factory. Featuring notably slimmer roof pillars than its Mk. I predecessor, the immortal Mk. II was as airy on the inside as it was elegant on the outside. The interior was quintessentially British with its sumptuous leather-covered seats, polished wood facia and door cappings, extensive instrumentation and impressive row of auxiliary toggle switches. These cars punched well above their weight. Equipped with either a 3.4 or 3.8 litre engine, the Jaguar was capable of sprinting to 60mph in as little as 8.5 seconds and on to a top speed of 125mph, small wonder that it was the first choice of both bank robbers and the police of the period!

This iconic Jaguar model has been in its enthusiast owner’s possession since February 1980. Presenting well in grey paintwork with a grey leather interior, this Jaguar Mk. II was originally registered in May 1965 and has been well cared for. The vendor informs us that he has recently rebuilt the engine, fitting new pistons, timing chain and clutch. He also tells us that this Jaguar is fitted with power steering, upgraded front brake calipers, upgraded servo, an electric fan and is a joy to drive. The front seats have been retrimmed and the back seats would benefit from some attention. Presented to auction with a file containing various bills and receipts, previous MoT test certificates and a V5C registration document, this MoT exempt Jaguar is offered without reserve.
