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 design. Powered by derivatives of the same XK DOHC straight-six engine that had swept Jaguar to five Le Man's victories, the MkII was quick to dominate contemporary saloon car racing. Synonymous with the swinging ’60s and the hit TV series, Inspector Morse, the Jaguar MkII has been used as a vehicle to transport everyone from dignitaries and politicians to bank robbers and the criminal select. When released, traditional Jaguar buyers had no need to feel alienated by the new offering from Coventry as the interior was up to their usual standards with leather and walnut being the order of the day.

Offered here is a 'fast road' Coombs evocation. Better known as an entrant than a driver, John Coombs put up some spirited performances behind the wheel of various single-seaters before settling down to make Coombs of Guildford one of Britain's most successful Jaguar dealerships. A frequent visitor to Browns Lane, he was instrumental in fine-tuning the MkII to become the saloon racer that it did. Capitalising on the success his cars had achieved in the British Saloon Car Championship, Coombs offered a wide range of tuning options for road-going MkIIs.

'MXD 533E' has been restored to a high standard and finished in Metallic British Racing Green. A ground-up restoration was initiated over a 10-year period at huge cost, with thousands of hours spent, and was finally completed in the spring of 2020. The Jaguar is said to perform and run ‘extremely’ well and can be used every day if required, or for fun days out or on the track. The exterior has had panels replaced as required, the shell prepped and painted and under-sealed; Coombs arches and bonnet; new chrome work and 15” Minilite wheels (a set of chrome wire wheels also accompanies). Inside has been treated to new Black leather seats, door cards, and Black carpet set; new headlining; refurbished wood; Nardi steering wheel; Webasto sunroof and custom centre console. 'MXD 533E' has received fully refurbished brakes upgraded using many XJ6 components, Series 2 XJ6 gearbox and Mk 2 Jaguar axle fitted with new limited slip diff, bearings and seals. Suspension & Steering: Fully powder coated; poly bush kit; front adjustable shockers; 5-linked rear suspension kit with adjustable coil overs; Series 2 XJ6 steering rack with power steering. The engine is an overhauled Series 2 XJ6 4.2 injection engine, air induction system; 6 branch header exhaust manifolds, full 2 ¼” stainless system; new petrol tank and Aero equipped fuel lines; motorsport fuel pump, custom engine wiring loom; oil cooler; rolling road at ‘Mikeanics’ showed to be making 200bhp at 4500rpm, 214lb ft at 3700rpm; and alloy radiator with electric fan. The Jaguar is also accompanied by a full set of wire wheels, should the new owner wish to fit them.
