Footnotes

  • One of the most readily recognised cars of the 1960s, thanks in part to countless appearances in films and on television, Jaguar’s seminal Mk2 saloon set the standard for the class throughout its entire production life and today remains highly prized by enthusiasts. With the advent of the Mk2, the 3.8-litre version of Jaguar’s XK six became available for the first time in the company’s medium-sized saloon, which in top-of-the-range, 3.8-litre, manual/overdrive configuration was a genuine 125mph car capable of reaching 60mph in 8.5 seconds, outstanding figures for a saloon of its size even by today’s standards.
    Presented in very good condition throughout, this immaculate Jaguar Mk2 ‘3.8’ was purchased by the current owner, only its third from new, at Brooks’ Goodwood Festival of Speed Sale on 23rd June 2000 (Lot 930). At that time the car had covered some 76,000-or-so miles from new and had yet to be run in following a total restoration completed in 1999. It has now covered fewer than 5,000 miles since completion. ‘PPP 804D’ was acquired from its original owner by a Mr Charles Clifford, who used it for club competitions from 1981. (A copy of the 1987 Jaguar factory calendar featuring the car is included with it). Described by the vendor as in ‘ near mint’ condition, ‘PPP 804D’ benefits from a rebuilt engine, suspension and transmission, and features chromed wire wheels and a completely renovated interior incorporating new headlining, woodwork and seats. Both engine and suspension have been up-rated, the former having a straight-port cylinder head, 9:1 compression ratio, balanced and toughened crankshaft and SU HD8 carburettors, while the latter benefits from a Harvey Bailey handling kit incorporating stiffer roll bars front and rear. Finished in Opalescent Golden Sand, the car has the desirable manual/overdrive transmission and red leather interior, the latter said to be particularly impressive. It is offered with tool kit, current road fund licence, MoT to June 2008 and Swansea V5 registration document.
