Built between 1959 and 1967 the Jaguar Mk. II is a medium sized saloon car constructed in Coventry as the successor to the Jaguar 2.4 litre and 3.4 litre models manufactured between 1957 and 1959. These retrospectively became known as the Jaguar Mk. I following the release of the Mk. II in 1959. Adhering to Sir William Lyons’ maxim of ‘grace, pace and space’, the Jaguar Mk. II was a beautiful, fast and capable saloon. It also gained a reputation as a capable car among criminals and law enforcement alike; the 3.8 litre model being particularly fast with its 220bhp engine giving a standing start of 0-60mph in 8.5 seconds and to a top speed of 125mph. With enough room for five adults, they were also employed by the police to patrol British motorways.

This very good, original right-hand drive, 1966 Jaguar Mk. II was supplied new by P.J. Evans, Birmingham with the 2.4 litre engine, at some point it has been uprated to 3.8 litre with overdrive specification and the rebuilt in 2004 by marque specialists M & C Wilkinson, Doncaster who also fitted the larger SU carburettors. This car went to France in the early 1980’s where a Jaguar kilometre speedo was fitted, it then returned to the UK in March 1995. The current owner purchased the car in 2018 and fitted the Coombs rear wheel spats and had the car repainted in Guards Red which shows off the very nice tan interior. Also, at this time the brakes have been uprated with Coopercraft brakes and new chrome wire wheels with new tyres fitted. This is a very nice example which will carry you to any Jaguar meetings or the Goodwood Revival.
