Jaguar MK 2 Additional Information
A lovely example of a mk2 Jaguar finished in Masons Black with chrome wire wheels
Once owned by Lord David Steel who happens to be the president of the federation of British historic vehicle clubs
The Mk II Jaguar was launched in October 1959 to replace the 2.4 & 3.4 litre saloons, which were immediately to become known as the Mk I. The Mk II was heavily based on its predecessor but had a much lighter and more modern appearance. This was mainly due to a much larger glass area achieved by the use of deeper windows and slimmer window frames that were no longer part of the door mouldings. There were also many detail trim changes, and whilst the interior had undergone a complete redesign, it remained very luxurious with wood veneer and leather in abundance. Mechanically the rear track had been widened and improvements made to the suspension geometry.
This particular mk2 has been looked after very well over the years both mechanically and cosmetically we have a very large amount of invoices and old mot's.
I have personally covered around 70 miles in this car and its an absolute pleasure to drives the engine starts on the button and pulls nicely through the rev range with the automatic gearbox operating smoothly , The cylinder head was overhauled about 2,000 miles ago.
The interior is superb with minimal wear to the seats the wood and floor carpet are also superb and it has that lovely " Jaguar " scent
Overall this Jaguar is ready to use and enjoy on those sunny Sundays or a trip down the shops
