Lot 58 (Imperial War Museum Duxford, 14th October 2015)
Registration No: LEA 175
Chassis No: 209505BW
Mot Expiry: Sept 2016
Synonymous with the swinging '60s, the MKII is one of the most widely admired of all Jaguar Saloons and as cherished by the bank robbers of its time as the police who pursued them. It was at its most formidable when equipped with the 220bhp 3.8-litre engine. The MkII 3.8 saloon on offer left the Browns Lane Coventry works in 1963 and is finished in light metallic maroon. Believed to have had just four private keepers from new the last of whom took possession in 2004 'LEA 175' is thought to have covered just 1,700 dry miles whilst in his care. We understand that the 60,725 miles displayed when entered for is likely to the genuine total mileage since new. The vendor informs us it is a lovely original-spec motor car with factory-fit power-steering, clean bodywork and paintwork, super original beige leather interior, and with both 3.8-litre 6-cylinder engine and 3-speed automatic transmission reportedly in 'good' working order. Offered with a collection of old MOT'S, tax discs and invoices including one dating from 1969 from Henley's of London this clearly loved example and is offered with a current MOT certificate into September 2016.
