(SOLD) This matching-numbers 1964 Jaguar Mark II is an excellent example that is finished in a traditional color combination of Old English White over a Blue leather interior. The early sedan is fitted with a powerful, standard Jaguar 3.8-liter engine that is matched with a 4-speed manual transmission with overdrive. The car recently benefitted from a major service, where the team at Classic Showcase tended to the following: a comprehensive tune-up, SU carburetor rebuild, a gas tank cleaning (which included epoxy sealing and repainting), a new fuel pump, a new stainless steel exhaust system, a full hydraulic system overhaul, new suspension bushings, brite work replacement as needed, upholstery improvements, wet sanding and buffing the body, and much more. The Mark II includes four-wheel disc brakes, bucket seats, and complete factory wood trim throughout. Other features include a period correct AM/FM stereo, center console, fender-mounted dual mirrors, chromed knock-off wire wheels and wide whitewall tires. This sporty and attractive Mark II is fully capable of handling a variety of conditions, from winding mountain roads, to a pleasurable cruise down your favorite highway, or as a great contender for your favorite Concours. A JDHT Certificate accompanies the car.
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.
