This car is presented British Racing Green over beige (tan) leather interior and green carpet. It features the most powerful 3.8 Litre engine made with an manual gearbox, a comfortable combination indeed. The engine runs perfectly, and the gearbox also works good. The interior upholstery is exceptionally clean and in wonderful condition and the headlining is still original and perfect!
The automobile is in a very good condition and it shows all the original details.
The car features chrome wire wheels, safety belts, and it is a stylish Jaguar Mk II finished in a wonderful colour scheme!
It is always a true delight to drive a Mk II and look at the magnificent wood dashboard filled with an array of round gauges and dip switches.
The Swallow Sidecar Company was founded in 1922 by William Lyons and William Walmsley. In 1934 Lyons formed SS Cars Limited to effectively take over the operation from Walmsley. The SS brand was quite successful; though they had a reputation for having ‘more show than go’. The Jaguar name first appeared as a model name on an SS 2½ Litre Sports Saloon introduced in 1936. For political reasons, Lyons changed the name of his company to Jaguar Cars in 1945.
Whilst the SS100 is indeed a fabulous car, it was the launch of the legendary Jaguar XK120 at the London Motor Show in 1948 that really put Jaguar on the map. The car caused a sensation, which persuaded Jaguar founder and design boss William Lyons to put it into production. The XK120 morphed into the XK140 and ultimately the XK150 and in total, just over 30,000 cars were built over fifteen years of production. Jaguar could build sports cars but they were also very successful at building sports saloons. In 1955 the Jaguar Mk1 was introduced to fill a gap in the model range of a small to medium sized luxury saloon. Initially introduced with a 2.4 litre 6 cylinder engine and later a 3.4 litre 6 cylinder engine this model was very successful with some 38,000 examples sold between 1955 and 1959. In 1959 the Mk2 was introduced and whilst visually similar at first glance the ‘new car’ had many improvements over its predecessor. In addition to the 2.4 litre and 3.4 litre engines the Mk2 was also offered with a 3.8 litre engine as used in the E-Type. Just over 80,000 Mk2’s were built from 1959 to 1967. The Mk2 was to be replaced by the XJ6, however, this Jaguar MK II 3.8 Litre was build in 1960.
