Footnotes

  • "One of the most impressive sights today is the rapid and purposeful progress of a Mark 2 Jaguar on a motorway, eating up the miles in the fast lane. Like the nose of a bullet, the rounded frontal shape looks right for high speed, and the sheer velocity attained is usually exhilarating." - Autocar.

    One of the most readily recognised cars of the 1960s, thanks to countless appearances in films and on television, Jaguar's seminal Mark 2 saloon set the standard for the class throughout its entire production life and today remains highly prized by enthusiasts. With the Mark 2's arrival, 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.

    Representing the perennially popular Mark 2 in its ultimate, 3.8-litre/overdrive specification, this 'barn find' example has been off the road for some 30 years and is offered for restoration. Sold strictly as viewed, the car comes with its original and continuation old-style logbooks and a Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate.
