Adhering to Sir William Lyons’ maxim of “grace, pace and space”, the Jaguar Mark 2 3.8 was a fast and capable saloon, with a 220 BHP Jaguar XK engine. It showed similarities to the unit used in the 3.8 E-Type, having the same block, crank, connecting rods and pistons but different inlet manifold and carburation. The head of the six-cylinder engine in the Mark 2 had curved ports compared to the straight ports of the E-Type configuration. Both the 3.4 Litre and the 3.8 Litre models were fitted with twin SU HD6 carburettors. Compared to the Mark 1, appearance of the car was transformed by an increase of 18% in cabin glass area, that greatly improved visibility. The car was re-engineered above the waistline, slender front pillars allowed for a wider windscreen and the rear window almost wrapped around to the larger side windows, with the familiar Jaguar D-shape above the back door. The radiator grille was amended and a larger side, tail and fog lamps repositioned. Inside the car a new heating system was fitted and ducted to the rear compartment. The instrument layout in the dashboard was improved, later becoming standard for all Jaguar cars until the XJ series II in 1973. Mechanically

Lowered price from €29.950 -> €26.950 The Jaguar Mark X (pronounced mark ten) was the top-of-the-range saloon car built by the British manufacturer Jaguar, originally aimed at the United States market. The Mark X succeeded the Mark IX as the company's large saloon model. The modern Jaguar face, four headlamps set into rounded front fenders with a vaned grill, first appeared on the Mark X. The interior is the last Jaguar with abundant standard woodwork, including the dashboard, escutcheons, window trim, a pair of large bookmatched fold out rear picnic tables, and a front seat pull-out picnic table stowed beneath the instrument cluster. Over time, air conditioning and a sound-proof glass division between the front and rear seats were added as options. From its introduction until the arrival in 1992 of the low-slung XJ220, the Mark X stood as one of the widest production Jaguars ever built. Asked in 1972 if he thought the Mark X had grown rather too large, Jaguar chairman William Lyons, agreed that it "definitely" had: he opined that the then recently introduced and notably more compact Jaguar XJ6 was, by contrast an "ideal size". The substantial doors required helical torsion springs
210 hp The Jaguar Mark 2 is a medium sized saloon car built from 1959 to 1967 by the Jaguar company in Coventry, England, as successors to the Jaguar 2.4 and 3.4 models, manufactured between 1957 and 1959. These retrospectively became known as the Jaguar Mark 1 following the release of the Mark 2 in 1959 Adhering to Sir William Lyons' maxim of "grace, pace and space", the Mark 2 was a beautiful, fast and capable saloon. It came with a 120 bhp 2.4 L, 210 bhp 3.4 L or 220 bhp 3.8 L Jaguar XK6 engine. The 3.8 is similar to the unit used in the 3.8 E-Type (XKE), having the same block, crank, connecting rods and pistons but different inlet manifold and carburetion (two SUs versus three on the E-Type in Europe) and therefore 30 bhp less. The head of the six cylinder engine in the Mark 2 had curved ports compared to the straight ports of the E-Type configuration. For markets other than the US the 3.4 was fitted with twin SU carburettors and the 2.4 with twin Solexes, but three Solexes were used in US spec 3.4s and 3.8s in order to meet SMOG emissions legislation. This reduced power output over the equivalent SU carburetted examples. >>>>> Oldtimerfarm specializes in consignment sales o
