The Jaguar mark II saloon was produced from 1959 to 1967. In its day it was considered a luxury small saloon and, with the larger engine sizes, particularly rapid. Indeed the 3.8L versions were used as police motorway cars and also as get away cars by villains! It had a monocoque construction, as opposed to the chassis and body on the earlier saloons and the XK range. In 3.8L form it was a particularly quick car with genuine 120 mile an hour top speed and acceleration to match. They are still a quick road car and a classic that can be used for everyday motoring.
This particular Mark II is the most sort after of the range, being a manual with overdrive and having the 3.8L twin overhead cam XK engine. This engine was used for the E-Type, but was in a slightly higher state of tune in that car with three SU carburettors rather than two. The car is finished in one of the most attractive colour schemes of opalescent silver blue with blue leather interior. It has original options of power steering and heated rear window. It comes with a Heritage Certificate confirming it was built in 1966 as a 3.8L manual overdrive car with power steering for the British market and has matching numbers throughout.
The body and interior are immaculate and the chrome is excellent .The engine is excellent with no signs of wear. The car drives exceptionally well and is a fine high speed cruiser to this day. There is a file of recent expenditure during its last few years with an enthusiastic owner, and any problems that arose were sorted. The paintwork has recently had any minor blemishes rectified and is superb. It is an excellent example of this fast appreciating model.
