(SOLD) Get ready to relish this very nice right hand drive 1964 3.8 Mark II Sedan that was part of a well maintained collection. This Mark II is ready to be part of any collection, or just taken out on special drives. As you step into this car, and you ease the seat back, you’ll look out through the original Triplex glass windows. Enjoy its tight feel, and the smooth 3.8 liter as you power through all four gears and overdrive. You’ll appreciate the original, well-kept dark blue interior, and the elegant wood grain dash with lots of patina that is accented with fully functioning instrumentation. You can drive this 1964 Mark II “as is” and enjoy this style and comfort it offers. The bright work is in nice shape and looks great against the Opalescent Silver Blue paint with matching painted wheels. Inside the tidy rear boot is its original jack and spare tire. The previous owner had shown this Mark II in local Jaguar events and was very active in his Jaguar Club. He was very proud to show his Mark II as it was always well received and admired by other Jaguar members. The car recently received a full service so it is ready to go to its new home. This is a good solid car to drive and enjoy!
The Jaguar Mark 2 is a medium-sized saloon car built from late 1959 to 1967 by the Jaguar Company in Coventry, England. Adhering to Sir William Lyons' maxim of "grace, pace and space", the Mark II was a fast and capable saloon. It came with a 120 bhp 2,483 cubic centimeters, 210 bhp 3,442 cubic centimeters or 220 bhp 3,781 cubic centimeters Jaguar XK engine. The 3.8 is similar to the unit used in the 3.8 E-Type, having the same block, crank, connecting rods and pistons but different inlet manifold and carburation (two SUs versus three on the E-Type in Europe) and therefore 30 bhp (22 kW) less. The head of the six-cylinder engine in the Mark 2 had curved ports. The 3.4- and 3.8-litre cars were fitted with twin SU HD6 carburetors. The overall appearance of the car was transformed by an increase of 18% in cabin glass area greatly improving visibility. The car was re-engineered above the waistline. Slender front pillars allowed a wider windscreen and the rear window almost wrapped around to the enlarged side windows now with the familiar Jaguar D-shape above the back door and fully chromed frames for all the side windows. The radiator grille was amended and larger side, tail and fog lamps repositioned. Inside a new heating system was supplied and ducted to the rear compartment and a new better instrument layout.
