Lot 68

1969 Jaguar 240
Offered with additional reconditioned 4.2 Litre engine and spares

Estimated at £25,000 - £30,000

Lot details

Registration No: RCY 220G
Chassis No: 1J3978DN
MOT: Exempt

  • Home market car fitted with the preferred four-speed manual plus overdrive transmission
  • Wonderful period-look with a wood-rimmed steering wheel and painted wire wheels
  • Accompanied by a reconditioned 4.2 Litre XK DOHC engine should a new owner opt for more performance

Last evolution of the MkII line, the revised 240 and 340 models were introduced for the 1968 model year. Visually distinguished by their new slimline front and rear bumpers, they also benefited from sundry hidden changes such as the adoption of the E-type's straight port cylinder head design. Fitted with twin SU carburettors (in place of its predecessor's single Solex), the 240 model's 2483cc DOHC straight-six was quoted as developing some 133bhp and 146lbft of torque. Reputedly capable of over 100mph, the 'baby' Jaguar also boasted four-wheel disc brakes (a defining feature of the entire MkII range from 1959 onwards). Short lived, just 3,716 right-hand drive specification 240s are thought to have been made.

Finished in the handsome combination of British Racing Green with Tan leather upholstery, this nicely presented Jaguar 240 rides on a set of body-coloured wire wheels. The late owner was a real Jaguar enthusiast who had spent a lot of time searching for the right 240 before setting off to further improve his pride of joy. The subject of much past restoration work, the paintwork still has a deep lustre and the interior, which is believed to be largely original, is in very good condition with the woodwork having been refinished in the not too distant past. The underside is said to be very solid with new brake pipes and underseal. Kept garaged during the current ownership, 'RCY 220G' currently displays an unwarranted 60,800 miles to its odometer. The car is offered with a current V5, sundry paperwork and a collection of spares, including a fully overhauled engine with its hydraulic hoist, a reconditioned rear axle, a full set of wheels and the original rear spats.
