1967-1969 JAGUAR 240 specifications

1967-1969 JAGUAR 240 specifications Classic and Performance Car

After a good innings, the Mk2 was finally facelifted in 1967 to become the 240/340. These models were priced usefully below the outgoing cars, and evidence of cost-cutting was most notable inside, where leather gave way to lower-grade Ambla. Despite its popularity in the Mk2, power assisted steering wasn’t even offered as an option in the 240, making the car feel a lot more ponderous than it needed to. The engine was upgraded with a 4.2-style cylinder head, and that finally gave it enough power to break the 100mph barrier.
