Lot details

Chassis No: 1635660N
MOT: June 2023

  • Desirable UK-supplied example with manual gearbox and overdrive
  • Understood to boast ‘matching chassis and engine numbers’
  • An older restoration with good panel gaps
  • Sensibly upgraded with an electric fan and power assisted steering

Introduced in 1959, the MkII has long been Jaguar's best-loved sports saloon. Its combination of svelte good looks, strong performance and gentlemen's club interior has successfully charmed every passing generation. Based around a more sophisticated version of its MkI predecessor's monocoque bodyshell, equipped with independent coil-and-wishbone front suspension, a Panhard-rod located 'live' rear axle and four-wheel disc brakes, the newcomer was powered by a choice of race-bred 2.4 litre, 3.4 litre and 3.8 litre XK DOHC straight-six engines. Although, slower on paper than their range-topping 3.8 litre siblings, the 3.4 litre cars nonetheless boasted some 210bhp and 216lbft of torque, outputs sufficient to ensure a circa 120mph top speed and spirited acceleration (especially when fitted with the desirable four-speed manual plus overdrive gearbox).

Chassis number 1635660N is a desirable UK-supplied example, being registered new in the United Kingdom on the 20th of June 1963. Fitted with the 3442cc straight-six Jaguar engine allied to the four-speed manual transmission with overdrive, the Jaguar is finished in the complementary colour combination of Blue with a matching Grey leather interior upholstery and Blue carpets. The odometer shows the mileage as c.38,610 miles, with the MkII residing in current registered ownership since 2013. ‘391 GWD’ is understood to boast matching chassis and engine and features an almost complete original toolkit. An older restoration which included a full repaint, the Jaguar has good panel gaps and has been sensibly upgraded with power-assisted steering and an electric fan, ‘391 GWD’ is also fitted with a stainless-steel exhaust system and wire-wheels. Supplied with a history file that contains the operating, maintenance and service handbook; service manual; spare parts catalogue; a collection of previous invoices; a few previous MOT certificates; an MOT certificate until June 2023; and current V5C document.
