One of the most readily recognised cars of the 1960s, thanks in part 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. A progressive development of the Mark 1, Jaguar's first unitary-construction saloon, the Mark 2 made its debut in October 1959. Slimmer windscreen pillars and deeper side windows greatly enlarged the Mark 2's glass area, while the deletion of its predecessor's full-sized rear wheel spats allowed the rear track to be widened, a move which increased roll resistance and stability. Otherwise, running gear remained much the same as before, with independent front suspension by wishbones and coil springs, a leaf-sprung live rear axle and Dunlop servo-assisted disc brakes (optional at first on the Mark 1 but standard from November 1957) on all four wheels. A redesigned dashboard with speedometer and rev-counter ahead of the driver and the minor gauges grouped in the centre established Jaguar's layout for years to come. Transmission options were either a four-speed manual (overdrive optional) or Borg-Warner automatic gearbox, an improved all-synchromesh version of the former being specified from 1965.
This example of Jaguar's ever-popular Mark 2 was purchased by the lady vendor's husband circa 2005, having been in the preceding owner's possession since 1977 and garaged unused for 17 years. Restoration was started but due to the owner's ill health remains unfinished. Offered in need of further restoration, the car comes with an old-style logbook and is sold strictly as viewed.
