THE JAGUAR MK II

Introduced in October 1959, the MK II replaced the MK I, the Coventry firm's first unitary construction saloon car. Closely related to its immediate predecessor albeit extensively revised, the MK II offered better all-round visibility courtesy of larger windows, while the MK I's rear wheel spats disappeared and the rear track was widened, improving both roll-resistance and stability. Independent front suspension was by wishbone and coil springs, with a leaf-sprung live axle at the rear. This, combined with superior Dunlop disc brakes all round and a choice of 2.4, 3.4 and 3.8-liter XK engines, provided the discerning, string-back gloved, enthusiast driver with one of the finest sports saloons available in the 1960s.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Outfitted with the highly desirable 3.8-liter motor mated to a 4-speed manual transmission with overdrive, this numbers matching MK II is the ultimate iteration of the model. Originally painted Signal Red, the car now wears a combination of white over tan hides. A car with which to make friends and influence people, it is said to have belonged to an heir of Dale Carnegie for three decades.

Showing 43,000 miles, which are believed to be original from new, this Jaguar has received a thorough re-commissioning. Having been mechanically sorted, the MK II has also been the recipient of a recent repaint, new chrome wire wheels and tires, new rubber throughout, fresh chrome, newly refurbished wood trim, and new interior trim including fresh leather, carpet, and headliner. Complete with its original spare and owner's handbook, along with a file of restoration receipts over an inch and a half thick, this MK II provides the driving excitement and style of an E-Type with an extra set of doors and a proper rear seat – the perfect sports car for family outings!
