One of the most impressive sights today is the rapid and purposeful progress of a Mk2 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 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. Its immediate predecessor - the 'Mk1' - had been introduced in 1956 and is of historic significance, being the Coventry firm's first unitary construction saloon car.
Representing the Jaguar Mk 2 in its ultimate 3.8-litre/manual overdrive configuration, this example was first delivered by Coombs of Guildford and has only 2 owners from new. This Mk2 has had a new 3.8-litre engine fitted with a lightweight flywheel, this current engine has only completed 55 miles since it was built in 2017, this is mated to a full stainless-steel exhaust to unleash that magnificent symphony. The Mk2 also features an E-Type steering wheel, bucket seats and is offered with its original engine and axle. Accompanying the lot will be the original buff logbook, the original coombs stamped service book, the original maintenance chart, original owner's handbook and a V5 Document.
