- First registered by Devon County Council and believed but not warranted to have covered 54,600 miles from new
- Uprated for everyday usage including a high capacity radiator, Kenlowe fan, halogen headlights, polybushed suspension and Viper coil etc, Red leather upholstery
- Recent bare metal respray in Old English White revealed a notably sound shell, sought after 3.8 litre, manual / overdrive car
The vendor purchased this home market, 3.8 litre, manual / overdrive Jaguar MKII in July 2016 with the intention of being able to press it into everyday service. Believed to have covered a genuine 53,000 miles at the time (with a letter on file to that effect), the sports saloon had self-evidently been the subject of much past restoration work including mechanical fettling and a re-trim in Red leather. Already fitted with a high capacity radiator core, the vendor added a Kenlowe fan to improve the cooling still further. The Jaguar has also been improved via the installation of a Viper coil, electronic ignition, facet fuel pump, polybushed suspension and halogen headlights.
Stripped to bare metal for a recent respray in Old English White, 'EDV 156C' was found to show far fewer corrosion repairs than expected. Remarkably straight down the sides for a MKII, its smart paintwork is handsomely offset by Black wire wheels. Starting readily upon inspection and running well during our recent photography session with good oil pressure, this purposeful Jaguar is only for sale because the seller now deems it too smart to take to the supermarket or leave in a multi-storey! Currently showing some 54,600 miles to its odometer - a reading made more credible by the condition of the bodyshell - 'EDV 156C' comes with a factory tool kit, assorted old MOTs and sundry invoices.
