For many the definitive Jaguar sports saloon, the MkII was introduced in October 1959. A peerless blend of elegance and muscularity, its sleek lines clothed an evolution of the Coventry marque's first monocoque. Powered by derivatives of the same XK DOHC straight-six engine that had swept Jaguar to five Le Mans victories, the MkII was quick to dominate contemporary saloon car racing. Equipped with coil-and-wishbone independent front suspension, a leaf-sprung Salisbury rear axle and four-wheel disc brakes, the range-topping 3.8 boasted nearly seven times the horsepower of a Mini 850 and a 126mph top speed!
First registered in 1961, this good example of a MkII 3.8 manual overdrive has been cared for well throughout its life including a respray a number of years ago in the attractive Navy Blue it is today, which pairs well with the Red leather interior. The vendor bought the car in 2020 and immediately afterwards treated the car to over £14,000 in mechanical and electrical repair, including replacement or repair of the cooling system, heater system, ignition system, wiring and lighting system, fuel system and a full brake overhaul with new lines. This is all shown in the history file. The car now only appears to be in need of cosmetic repair which will be a worthwhile task as the car is completely usable as is. The vendor is selling to thin out his collection to make space for more of his collection and is offering this Jaguar at 'No Reserve'.
