Manufactured on 12th August 1963 and finished in blue with grey interior this desirable manual overdrive 3.8 Mk2 was sold new by Henlys London. In the current ownership since 2003 it features a conversion to run on unleaded petrol and is described as being in “good” condition as regards its bodywork, paintwork, engine, transmission and interior. Finished in its original shade of blue the car is accompanied by a Heritage Certificate, original owner’s wallet with handbook and a large collection of invoices together with old MoTs and tax discs. Featuring notably slimmer roof pillars than its MKI forebear, the immortal Jaguar MKII was as airy on the inside as it was elegant on the outside. Its monocoque bodyshell was equipped with independent coil-sprung front suspension and a well located live rear axle. The model could be specified with a 2.4, 3.4 or 3.8-litre version of Jaguar's race-proved, DOHC inline, six-cylinder XK engine. The interior was quintessentially British with its sumptuous leather-covered seats, polished wood facia and door cappings, comprehensive instrumentation and impressive row of auxiliary toggle switches. Equipped with the 220bhp 3.8-litre engine, the Jaguar was reputedly capable of sprinting to 60mph in 8.5 seconds and on to a top speed of 125mph. Some 30,141 3.8s were produced between 1959 and 1967.
