1958 Jaguar MK1 Saloon 3.4 litre automatic in its factory original colour combination of British Racing Green with Tan interior trim. Beautiful original condition, technically perfect.

Matching numbers, on Dutch EU registration, comes with a Heritage Certificate.

This Jaguar MK1 was produced on the 15th of December 1958 in British Racing Green with Tan interior trim. Dispatched on the 24th of December 1958 through Jaguar Cars, New York USA to its first owner D. E. Gunnerson, Newark, Ohio, USA. This car was factory fitted with Dunlop 4-wheel disc brakes and an automatic gearbox. In 2004 this MK1 was registered in the Netherlands and bought in 2005 by its previous long term owner.

This Jaguar 3.4 MK1 is a charmingly original car sporting its factory original colour combination of British Racing Green with original Tan leather interior trim. The car has a lovely patina to it showing its age and authenticity combined with a perfect mechanical condition. It is the ultimate classic travelling companion for events like Goodwood. This particular car has also been a regular attendee to the Mike Hawthorn Museum Jaguar MK1 days.

The previous owner spent around €20.000,- Euro on service and repairs of which all invoices are kept with the car. Sensible upgrades include a modern Jaguar XJ automatic transmission (the original transmission is kept with the car), dynamo conversion, electronic ignition and a battery master switch.

Driving this car is as you would expect from a sporting saloon, acceleration from the torquey 3.4 litre engine is brisk as well as civilised. A strong healthy engine combined with a great road holding make this car cruise very well on the motorway. This MK1 must be one of the most desirable versions, 3.4 litre with factory fitted Dunlop 4-wheel disc brakes, wire wheels, twin Lucas spot/fog lamps, seat belts, period Radiomobile radio, twin exhaust in a great colour combination and wearing a lovely feel of authenticity. The car is now ready to be used and enjoyed.

The Jaguar MK1, a British sports saloon car was produced between 1955 en 1959. In contemporary company documentation it was referred to as the Jaguar 2.4 litre and the Jaguar 3.4 litre. The MK1 was initially offered with a 2.4 litre version of the XK120's twin-cam six-cylinder engine, first rated at 112 bhp by the factory at the launch in 1955. From February 1957, a larger 3.4 litre version of this engine was introduced boosting the performance to a healthy and sporty 210 bhp. Also wire wheels became available and the 3.4 had a larger front grille for better cooling and a stronger rear axle. Typical factory options were, amongst others, a 3-speed Borg-Warner automatic transmission, overdrive on the manual transmission and the very desirable Dunlop disc brakes for all 4 wheels. In total 19.992 of the 2.4 and 17.405 of the 3.4 versions were produced.

British magazine The Motor tested a 3.4 litre automatic Mark 1 in 1957 and recorded a top speed of 119.8 mph (192.8 km/h) and acceleration from 0-60 mph in 11.2 seconds. A fuel consumption of 21.1 miles per imperial gallon (13.4 liter / 100 km) was recorded. Testing a manual overdrive version of the 3.4 litre manual in 1958 resulted in a similar top speed with acceleration from 0-60 mph in 9.1 seconds.

Jaguar Mark1 3.4 litre saloons competed successfully in many rallies, touring car and saloon car races, notable drivers including Stirling Moss, Mike Hawthorn, Tommy Sopwith and Roy Salvadori.
