  • Current ownership since 1989 with just four former keeper showing on HPI
  • Desirable home market, manual gearbox with overdrive
  • Subject to a bodywork restoration and repaint shortly after purchase
  • Offered as a stalled restoration project, ripe for completion

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, the 340 model's 3442cc DOHC straight-six was quoted as developing some 210bhp and 215lbft of torque. Reputedly capable of 120mph in manual guise, the 'compact' Jaguar also boasted four-wheel disc brakes (a defining feature of the entire MkII range from 1959 onwards). Short-lived, just 2,265 right-hand drive specification 340s are thought to have been made.

Manufactured new in 1968, the 340 offered was supplied new to the United Kingdom, being registered new on the 23rd of March that year. Fitted with the 3442cc straight-six engine allied to desirable the four-speed manual transmission with overdrive, the Jaguar presents in an attractive colour combination of Blue paintwork with a complementary Blue leather interior upholstery. Displaying a recorded and credible mileage of 90,857 miles, the Jaguar was acquired into current ownership in 1989 as a partially completed restoration project and shows four former keepers on HPI. Subject to a bodywork restoration and re-paint while in the current ownership, the Jaguar is known to run but will require further recommissioning/restoration before being road worthy.

Engine: 'Good'
Electrical Equipment: 'Average'
Paintwork: 'Good'
Transmission: 'Average'
Interior Trim: 'Average'
