Footnotes

  • A development of the Mk1, the Jaguar Mk2 was introduced in October 1959. Slimmer windscreen pillars and deeper side windows greatly enlarged the cabin's glass area, while the deletion of its predecessor's rear wheel spats enabled the rear track to be widened, increasing roll resistance and stability. Otherwise, the running gear remained much as before, with independent front suspension by wishbones and coil springs, leaf-sprung live rear axle and disc brakes on all four wheels.

    Although ultimately not as fast as its larger-engined 3.4- and 3.8-litre siblings, the 2.4-litre Mk2 possesses all the style and refinement associated with Jaguar's classic saloon, while cruising comfortably in present-day traffic on motorways. Cheaper to insure, the '2.4' is also capable of delivering superior fuel consumption - an important consideration these days, even for classic cars - particularly when equipped with overdrive transmission, as is the case with this example.

    This 2.4-litre Mk2 is offered for restoration and sold strictly as viewed. We are advised that the engine, although not running at present, was running well up to two years ago and that refurbishment undertaken in recent years includes the installation of new front cross-member, sub-frame and chassis 'crow's feet'. Offered with Swansea V5.
