Jaguar’s Mark 2 is probably the companies most famous saloon car, and with good reason. Highly successful in motorsport during the early 1960s and even today in historic racing, the dynamics of what was probably the first truly modern saloon car, with disc brakes all round and a smooth punch twin overhead camshaft 6 cylinder engine, endeared the car to both racers and getaway drivers alike! Heavily featured in various cops and robbers TV shows of the 1960s and early ’70s as the “crims” favourite mode of transport the car later became poacher turned game keeper in the Inspector Morse TV series of the 80s and 90s.
We love Mark 2s for all these reasons and more. Great to drive, comfortable, easy to live with and of course with fantastic looks, the Mark 2 covers a lot of ground both literally and metaphorically speaking. And in 3.8 litre configuration the car is a seriously quick classic with 220bhp on tap and 0 – 60 in 8.5 seconds.
Our Mark 2 was first owned by a Mrs Dixon of London (Not Dock Green sadly!) and during the 1960s it moved from London to Kent and finally up to Yorkshire where it appears to have stayed for some considerable time. Wind forward to 2000 and the car’s current owner embarked on a restoration of the car back to its original configuration and colours, Golden Sand and Red interior, painted wheels and webasto sunroof.
Some time later in 2015 CMC were commissioned to upgrade the car further and the final specification of the car is quiet impressive:
With what appears to be a genuine 88000 miles on the clock, an original tool kit and much original documentation, this must surely be one of the best 3.8s on the market today.
