The immortal MKII Jaguar remains one of Jaguar's most widely admired Saloons. Featuring notably slimmer roof pillars than its MKI forebear, the newcomer was as airy on the inside as it was elegant on the outside. Comprising a monocoque bodyshell equipped with independent coil-sprung front suspension, a well located live rear axle and disc brakes all round, it could be specified with a 2.4, 3.4 or 3.8-litre version of Jaguar's race-proved 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. The attention to detail and build quality of the MKII were remarkable for the price - these cars punched above their weight.
First registered in 1962, This particular example features the 4.3L variant and is finished in Blue with contrasting tan leather interior. ‘40 EFJ’ was taken off the road at some point between 2020 and 2021 to undertake some maintenance rectifying electrical gremlins and more, but due to a family bereavement it was never finished. It is believed that much of the electrical work was completed, and It is also believed the car was subject to an engine overhaul by its previous owner, but there is no paperwork to substantiate this. Offered as a project for completion, ‘40 EFJ’ comes accompanied by the V5 document.
