This right-hand drive, 3.8-liter example has been very well cared for during its lifetime, shows patina, and has wood accompaniments that to add to its elegance. Recently, the wood dash top, the front pillars, and the rear trays were refinished by Madera Concepts. Coming with a 1-inch smaller steering wheel (for driving comfort, and better steering), an AM/FM/Cassette stereo, fender-mounted dual mirrors, chrome bumpers, and chrome wire wheels, this driver level sedan runs and drives well. Born as an automatic, it has since been converted to a 4 -speed manual, and has been upgraded with an alloy radiator and fan, an alternator, relays, and new wiring. In the last few months a replacement head liner was installed, it was tuned, some oil leaks were fixed, the bottom of the car was pressured cleaned, and new door seals and sill seals were installed. Accompanying the car upon purchase are: the original keys, service receipts, importation papers, and a working original radio. This is truly a very solid driver level car that would be a great entry level car for the budding Jaguar collector who wants to enjoy driving their Jaguar. Unrestored examples such as this one, are rarely coming up for sale today, making this opportunity all the more special.
Adhering to William Lyons' maxim of "grace, pace and space", the Mark II was a beautiful, fast and capable saloon car. The Mark II gained a reputation as a capable car among criminals and law enforcement alike; the 3.8 Litre model being particularly fast with its 220 bhp (164 kW) engine driving the car from 0-60 mph (97 km/h) in 8.5 seconds and to a top speed of 125 mph (201 km/h) with enough room for five adults. Popular as getaway cars, they were also employed by the Police to patrol British motorways.This beautiful MK II belonged to a Jaguar collector whom had many exceptional Jaguars in his collection. This collector took pride and joy in all of his Jaguars.
