1961 Jaguar MK II 3.8 Manual Overdrive. British Racing Green with Green leather upholstery and Chrome Wire Wheels. One of the most readily recognised cars of the 1960s thanks in part to countless appearances in films and on television, Jaguar's seminal Mark 2 saloon set the standard for the class throughout its entire production life and today remains highly prized by enthusiasts. Its immediate predecessor - the 'Mark 1' - had been introduced in 1956 and is of historic significance, being the Coventry firm's first unitary construction saloon car. The Mk2 offered better all-round visibility courtesy of larger windows, while the Mk1's rear wheel spats disappeared and the rear track was widened, which improved both roll-resistance and stability. The dashboard was redesigned with the speedometer and rev counter relocated in front of the driver, the six toggle switches and four minor gauges being set across the centre. Independent front suspension was by wishbone and coil springs, with a leaf-sprung live axle at the rear. This, combined with superior Dunlop disc brakes all round and a choice of 2.4, 3.4, or 3.8-litre XK engines, provided the discerning, enthusiast driver with one of the finest sports saloons available in the 1960s. In its ultimate, 3.8-litre, overdrive-equipped form, the Mk2 could reach 125mph with 60mph coming up in 8.5 seconds, impressive figures for a saloon of its size even by today's standards. Although there was a slight performance penalty with the optional Borg-Warner automatic transmission installed, the '3.8' in this form was an increasingly popular choice, particularly in the North American market. Representing the Jaguar Mark 2 in its ultimate 3.8-litre/overdrive configuration, this car was first registered to the previous owner in April 1991 having been extensively restored. The Jaguar has given much pleasure and never let the previous owner down. The Jaguar is fitted with power steering and makes the car a pleasure to drive, easily keeping up with modern traffic and very capable of long journeys. Still looking beautiful today and just waiting to be enjoyed in new hands. Absolutely any inspection is welcome. All major debit cards accepted. Delivery can be arranged.

EXTERIOR Built in late 1966 towards the end of the production run of the Jaguar Mk2 and prior to the introduction of the first XJ6, this luxurious Jaguar MKII is finished in the original colour of Opalescent Silver Grey. The paintwork presents beautifully with a deep uniform shine and high polished finish. The elegant curvaceous shape of this iconic model can be fully appreciated with the all panels straight and free from damage other than a minor defect to the top of the passenger front wing. The extensive high-quality chrome finishers are undamaged and in excellent order with only very light aging evident upon close scrutiny. Advocates for originality will note Lucas light fitments and lenses including the Jaguar rear number plate lamp and small side lights incorporated into the front wings which show some discolouration to the lenses. The original rubber trim sections are showing age related deterioration. A magnificent classic Jaguar, a true British Icon. INTERIOR The Dunlopillo foam rubber seat cushions covered in Ambla leather hide in rich Red is well preserved with the leather fully intact and soft, and displaying only light aging. The superbly comfortable split bench front seats have the beautifully machined jaguar seat belt clasps and a sense of occasion surrounds the occupants on every journey! Luxury tufted carpets over thick felt underlay, full matching door dressings and soft velvet headlining are all intact with the headlining showing some discolouration. The handcrafted polished figured walnut instrument panel features a plethora of ornate and fully functioning Smiths gauges and toggle switches, each individually labelled with complete words, as abbreviations and symbols just won’t do! The original Bakelite steering wheel with Jaguar Growler Emblem and horn ring is a work of art. Incredibly, the windscreen mounted running in guide has remained fitted to delight originality seekers along with the chrome Lucas rear view mirror. Reminiscent of a bygone luxury motoring age, even the leather and wood scent will ignite fond nostalgia. ENGINE & TRANSMISSION The 2.4 litre Jaguar XK engine is the factory fitted unit and is therefore matching numbers. Featuring the correct twin SU HS6 semi-downdraught carburettors and dual exhaust system, output is quoted at 133bhp at 5500rpm. The engine bay is very clean and the information on the vehicle build plate to the nearside inner wing match exactly to the vehicle records found on the Heritage Certificate. The manually operated four-speed all-synchromesh gearbox changes gear smoothly with no slip but a high biting point and features factory optional Laycock de Normanville overdrive. WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES Pressed steel bolt-on disc wheels are coloured coded and dressed in the original embellishers and Jaguar hubcaps, and five matching quality Vredestein Sprint ST 185 SR15 are period style fitment with excellent tread. The spare wheel is housed in the lower boot floor complete with the very rare original toolkit in the fitted and lined container. Self-adjusting disc brakes to all four wheels with quick change pads and vacuum servo assistance have benefitted from a recent overhaul. Very advanced for the era. HISTORY FILE Built on the 14th September 1966 at the Jaguar Plant in Coventry, a Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate dated 19th June 2018 confirms this example is factory perfect in every respect. Despatched to the supplying dealer, Mann Edgerton on the 31st October 1966 and first registered on the 17th March 1967. Incredibly, the car has remained in the ownership of just two families, all fully traceable in the impressive history file. The first owner is confirmed in both copies of the original buff log book and Heritage Certificate as a Mr Frank Gee, who purchased the car through his company FA & E Gee Ltd before selling to family member Reginald Gee in June 1977. A used car sales invoice from October 1979 confirms the purchase by the next owner, Dr Alfred McKenzie, for the sum of £3,450.00, at which time the car had covered 31,218 miles. Incredibly the car remained in the ownership of Dr McKenzie for 37 years, and only upon his passing has ownership transferred to his son, Colin McKenzie. The history file features a comprehensive record of servicing and maintenance including most notably many invoices from respected specialist, David Wall Vintage and Classic Cars, totalling thousands of pounds and dating back to 1991. The original vehicle handbook and point of sale literature have been kept along with a large fold-out maintenance chart, RAC running-in sign and Jaguar Driver’s Club correspondence. This matching numbers example having covered just 51,025 miles benefits from very unusual fully traceable ownership from new and will continue to delight the next deserving keeper.

Variant name:3.8 , The Holy grail Jaguar Mk2, A genuine 3.8 litre “Coombs”. This is one of only 33 believed ever built and recently certified for us by Ken Bell, former workshop manager of Coombs who actually built this very car. Coombs of Guildford were a leading race team in the 60’s preparing and campaigning Mk2 Jaguars with huge success, John Coombs himself piloted the most successful cars from any racing stable at the time. To understand what a Coombs car is, you have to understand the special engineering carried out to the converted cars, with many options available. 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 overdrive, Power-Lok 3.73 ratio rear axle, front and rear arches modified by Coombs to accommodate wide track wheels, E type wood rim steering wheel, wooden gear lever knob, push button radio with twin speakers / balance control and roof aerial, reclining seats, heated rear window, foglamp covers and ‘Sundym’ tinted glass. This is a very capable car even today, and in period this was a race car for the road, a supercar of its time and faster than a 3.8 E type. This example has just 1 former keeper, a well-known musician from the sixties, and the most incredible provenance. This car with its special order black trim over opalescent silver grey paintwork, and almost all options chosen, was deemed lost – the Coombs register actually compiled by Ken Bell had this cars whereabouts marked as unknown / perhaps lost. However this was as the owner was very discreet, didn’t publicly flaunt his car and therefore it floated under the radar for 51 years. Cars like this come once in a lifetime if lucky enough, with irrefutable provenance and ownership, from Coombs factory notes on the commissioning of the car, log book showing number of former keepers – ‘none’,down to the build sheet still in its 3 box file thick history. Of the lowly number of cars built, around 30-35 cars total, quite a few have been lost, raced, crashed, taken apart etc, and the ones that have survived are often in different configuration to how they were built. Not this car, she carries all of her original spec, right down to the finest detail, her vented bonnet the only alteration. (we have the original bonnet also). Her only discerning owner maintained her so sympathetically and she has only covered just over 70k miles. This has to be the most original, highest spec, lowest ownership GENUINE Coombs MK2 in existence? A vehicle of serious historic importance, so rare with only twenty something examples left – this recently discovered treasure was thought to be lost forever. Find another. Hilton and Moss are very proud to be the new custodians of such a significant piece of motoring history, be sure to see us with the car at all of the important historic vehicle events next year.
JAGUAR COOMBS MK2 This car had been in the same ownership since the mid-1970s and stored in a barn. The owner’s intention was to one day restore and use the car as everyday transport. Over the passing years the inclination to spend hundreds of hours underneath a classic Jaguar lost its appeal and the car was put on the market. Fortunately for us one of our clients purchased the car and gave us the task of carrying out a complete restoration to bring the vehicle back to as-new condition. Original Coombs MK2 Saloons are few and far between, this one was checked and verified by Ken Bell prior to the purchase. We completed the restoration in April 2011. The history file that comes with this very special car is just as stunning, in a beautiful Red leather bound folder are photos of the car as found, the original logbook, old tax discs, old MOT’s, Heritage Certificate also photos of Mr John Coombs with the car since it was restored and a certificate authenticating the car signed by him. 38 BUY is a very rare and special car that is in excellent condition having been kept in top condition by the current owner. Please contact us to arrange a viewing/test drive.

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

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.
