The accompanying Jaguar Heritage Certificate records this RHD MOD 3.8 saloon was despatched on 29 June 1964 and registered in Bradford, Yorks. Resident in South Africa for some twenty years, it was restored there between 2006 and 2011 before being imported into the UK and purchased by a Jaguar specialist as his personal transport. A report on file records his belief the restoration was to a high standard and whilst no invoices are available he estimates the cost at 2013 prices to have been in excess of £30,000 - a detailed breakdown of his finding is present in the history file. A 5 speed Toyota Supra gearbox was also installed in place of the Moss box - a recognised and beneficial conversion. Due to work pressures he decided to sell it to the vendor in 2013 who has carried out a number of improvement works including the fitting of a Kenlowe fan, new clutch, Coombs-style spats, chrome wire wheels and fitted luggage. This Mk2 is definitely worthy of close inspection.
