The sedan began its restoration journey with our team painstakingly disassembling and documenting each component off of the Sedan before the start of the bodywork and paint process began; after disassembly, the sedan's body was stripped down to bare metal, where it was meticulously finished, and expertly leaded. Each body part was meticulously fitted and chrome, bringing a touch of brilliance to every angle. From primer to sealer, paint to base and clear coats, the finish was lovingly color sanded and buffed to achieve a flawlessly fabulous British Racing Green finish you see today.

The restoration extends beyond the surface. Every system in the car has been meticulously gone through, ensuring optimal performance. The engine has been rebuilt back to factory specifications, unleashing its full power with each rev. The fuel, electrical, cooling, and hydraulic systems have been meticulously restored.

The Sedan’s power plant is impressive, as the Mark 2’s mechanical prowess easily matches its BRG aesthetic splendor. All systems – from the Major to the Minor were completely gone through and were replaced or restored…from the 3.8-liter engine to the upgraded MT75 Cosworth 5-speed transmission, no detail was spared. The Mark 2’s fuel, electrical, cooling, and hydraulic systems were restored as well, along with the addition of a new wire loom. The rear end, and suspension were also painstakingly rebuilt to factory specifications, ensuring optimal performance and reliability. The Mark 2 was also upgraded and configured with an alloy radiator, gear reduction starter, and a new stainless steel exhaust system. In addition, the Sedan's britework has also been restored to its former glory, completing a picture of restored automotive perfection.

Adhering to William Lyons' maxim of "grace, pace and space", the Mark II was a beautiful, fast and capable saloon car. It came with a 2.4 L, 3.4 L or 3.8 L Jaguar XK6 engine. The 3.8 is similar to the unit used in the 3.8 E-Type (XKE), having a different inlet manifold and carburetion (two SUs versus three on the E-Type in Europe) and therefore 30 bhp less. The head of the six cylinder engine in the E-Type was also different with its "straight port" layout as opposed to the slightly curved ports of the Mark II. The Mark II model was raced successfully in the European Touring Car Championship.
