This car was given the full monte, 9:1 compression pistons, 2” HD8 SU carburettors, special induction manifold, Barwell gas flowed and ported head specially for coombs, D-type camshafts, larger inlet valves, modified distributor, special straight through competition exhaust system centre exit, lead-bronze main and big end bearings, lightened flywheel, high ratio steering box, koni shock absorbers, modified suspension including stiffer anti-roll bar / stiffer coil springs to front / heavy duty leaf springs to rear, extra wide track chrome Dunlop wire wheels, E type all synchromesh gearbox with Laycock de Normandville ove
Description This iconic 1962 Jaguar mk2 3.8 Manual overdrive is an opportunity to restore perhaps the most handsome of all sixties British saloons. Originally Green with Tan, the car comes to us complete, and with a running engine. A very successful racer in period, the MK2 3.8 was also the quintessential bank robbers favourite, being practical and spacious, a four door saloon with essentially a race bred engine, very few cars of any type could keep up with a 3.8 MK2 in the 1960’s. Having last been on the road in 2007, she came off of the road to have minor corrosion repair to the usual jacking points and sills, and other light restoration. Due to poor health of the former keeper this was never finished and the car comes to us in need of full body restoration. Many new parts accompany the car, and the interior needs very little work. The car can be commissioned as an original spec restoration, we would suggest into its original green colour, or perhaps she could have modifications mechanically or cosmetically for those wanting to consider delving into classic racing?
Jaguar Mk2 3.8 Manual Overdrive, 1962. This striking Mk2 was first registered in January, 1962 and has the original engine. The original gearbox has been upgraded to “all-synchro”. All of the numbers are matching and the various invoices and numerous MOT certificates appear to substantiate the indicated mileage of 59k. This stunning example was restored in 2012 by renowned and highly respected company M and C Wilkinson of Doncaster, the family run business of Jaguar engineers and amongst the top specialists in the country today. They have been responsible for a number of rebuilds of period racing Jaguars and road cars. This example was stripped to its bare shell and carefully prepared for several coats of fresh paint. At the same time the engine was fully rebuilt and everything was done that was necessary. All of the suspension was rebuilt with new springs and shock absorbers. New tank and fuel lines at the same time. The brakes were upgraded with new master cylinder, new servo, “Coopercraft” calipers an the front and “XJ” brake calliper conversion at the rear. When the mechanical restoration was complete the car was painted in its original colour of Opalescent Blue. The interior w

**Now Reserved** Thanks for all your interest.... One of the most versatile and adored 60’s Saloons is the Jaguar Mk.II, and our car, being a UK RHD car with matching 3.8 litre engine and manual gearbox with overdrive is the perfect steed! Offered in very pleasing Opalescent Silver Blue with dark blue leather interior and blue carpets, the timeless colour combination suits the car admirably. We have both the Coombs style and original spats offered with this car so the new owner can choose which it wears. Purchased by its previous owner in 2006, the car when he bought it had been stripped, primed and painted, but the rest of the car was in boxes. With help from a friend they set about completely rebuilding this car to a very high standard, incorporating original components and spending in excess of £16,000 on parts and professional services from the likes of SNG Barratt Group and M and C Wilkinson Ltd. Dispatched in July 1964 via Munn 7 Underwood Ltd of Southsea, Hamshire, our car proudly wore the registration mark ‘CBK 450C’ as it still wears today. We don’t claim this car to be perfect, no car ever is, but it is very fine and we can fully understand the popularity of these cars amongst those in the know for their adaptability, treading a thin line between Saloon and Sports Car, their comfort, and to coin a phrase, “grace, space and pace”…. Viewings thoroughly recommended at our premises near York, North Yorkshire.

Wire Wheels A lovely example of a mk2 Jaguar finished in Masons Black with chrome wire wheelsOnce owned by Lord David Steel who happens to be the president of the federation of British historic vehicle clubsThe 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 '' scentOverall this Jaguar is ready to use and enjoy on those sunny Sundays or a trip dow

Jaguar Mk2 3.8 Presented in the most attractive colour combination of opalescent blue with a red leather interior.

Recently recommissioned by M&C Wilkinson the features include immaculate bodywork & unmarked interior uprated front vented brakes electronic ignition / distributor Koni shock absorbers on the front & rear with Coombs springs rack & pinion power steering E-type straight port cylinder head manual with overdrive all syncromesh gearbox six inch rim wire wheels and much more.
1966 JAGUAR MK2 LHD Production of the MK2 Jaguar ceased in 1967, making our 1966 manufactured car a late example and as such the better for Jaguars policy of ongoing refinement. With the much preferred 3.8 litre engine, automatic transmission and power assisted steering, this is a remarkably modern drive. Indeed, the driving experience is agreeable in every way: Engine start-up is easy from cold and when hot. Gear changes are smooth and the power assisted steering functions correctly. On road test the brakes performed well and all instruments register within tolerance. Cosmetically too the car is striking: chic in Primrose set-off by the refurbished black interior with beautifully finished wood work, it is evident that significant time and expense have been lavished on this cherished car. The engine compartment is finely detailed and the boot clean and equipped with the correct tools. All in all a most attractive example, its appeal enhanced still further by chrome wire wheels. Here is a rare opportunity to own an iconic British sporting saloon, from one of the most prestigious manufacturers and offering practical family transport. Certain to make the new owner the envy of his fellow club members, friends, neighbours and colleagues as well as the motoring public at large. Ready to be enjoyed.
