The Jaguar Mk. II was a medium sized saloon built from 1959 to 1967 as a successor to the 2.4 and 3.4 litre models. It was a handsome, powerful and good handling saloon which was offered with a choice of three six-cylinder, twin cam engines; 2.4 litre, 3.4 litre or 3.8 litre. After the appreciation of the Mk. I, Jaguar's successor was well received making a good car even better. The 210bhp 3.4 litre engine variant proved to be the most popular, offering the best compromise between performance and economy. Naturally, the performance was excellent and the 3.8 litre Mk. II enjoyed great success on the track and can still be a very competitive historic race car today. Raced by all the top drivers of the day including Graham Hill, Roy Salvadori and Michael Parkes, the Mk. II scored victories throughout saloon car races in the sixties and was also raced across Europe in the Tour De France and Monte Carlo rally.
This example is presented in Old English White with a contrasting red interior. The car was first registered on 23rd October 1967 and shows just four owners from new. The last owner purchased it in 2015 and after using it only occasionally, he placed it in storage in 2017 until now. It has just been recommissioned mechanically at a cost of £1,994.81 and at the same time new carpets were fitted and a new cloth headlining was also fitted. Prior to the last owners purchase, the car was resprayed and all of the top dash and door cappings were professionally refurbished in a high gloss lacquer finish. It is powered by Jaguar’s six-cylinder 2.4 litre engine which is mated to a manual gearbox and drives well according to the present owner.
