(SOLD) This is a very stylish and sporty example that is brimming with patina throughout, and a great choice for the enthusiast who is looking for an iconic classic Jaguar sedan they can drive and enjoy now, and gradually improve upon over time as they see fit. The Sedan has benefited from the previous ownership of a longtime Jaguar Owner's Club member and enthusiast who was always sure to keep it mechanically sound, with the ultimate goal of one day performing a full cosmetic restoration to the car's body -- making this a terrific candidate for a full restoration. The Sedan proved to be extremely reliable and comfortable, reporting to have performed optimally in a wide array of conditions. In recent years, the S-Type's engine, suspension and other mechanical components have been rebuilt, and would benefit from a routine tune-up / servicing before hitting the road. While the vehicle exhibits some rust, it is easily repairable and the Sedan's new owner may commission Classic Showcase to perform any restoration work they desire. Don't miss this opportunity to get an affordable classic Jaguar example that will bring you years of enjoyment!
S-Type was essentially a plusher version of the company's popular Mark 2 but with Jaguar's independent rear suspension, which general layout it shared with the larger Mark X saloon and the E-Type sports car. It shared the monocoque and much of its bodyshell with the Mark 2 including doors, windscreen and bonnet and much of the interior. The rear end was completely restyled around the new suspension and drew styling cues from the Mark X. The S-Type had a slightly revised front end with discreet eyelids over the headlamps, which were not altogether successful in their intended purpose of visually balancing the longer rear end. Heavier than the Mark 2, the S-Type was slower but had a better ride. The 3.8 L engine was the only unit offered in the United States.
