Description

Classic Showcase is pleased to offer this striking numbers-matching 1962 Jaguar Mark II right hand drive example, that has been restored to a Show-Driver level by professional Jaguar restorers. The Sedan presents wonderfully on the outside and inside, as it has been completely repainted in a magnificent color of Opalescent Silver Blue using Glasurit paint, which has enhanced the classic curves and lines that Mark IIs are known for. In addition, the Mark IIs chrome has been completely re-plated to a brilliant shine, and rests upon an equally fine set of Chrome Wire Wheels, with a pair of driving lights for touring and nighttime driving to complete the look. On the inside, the Mark II stands just as beautifully as its exterior, and features a beautifully trimmed interior with a painstakingly restored Wood trimmed dash, along with the addition of plush Wilton wool carpeting throughout, and a great Stereo system to experience your favorite music or audio content on your favorite drives.

History

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.
