Car to be at auction 11/23
29th Nov, 2023 Pavilion Gardens | Buxton, Derbyshire
1966 Jaguar MkII 2.4 Litre
£14,000 - £16,000
Registration No: JWY 606D
Chassis No: 119754DN
Resident in the car friendly climate of South Africa for the first thirty-nine years of its life
Fitted with the desirable manual overdrive transmission
Delightful and highly original interior
Subtly uprated with a period looking Bluetooth radio, under-bonnet immobiliser and seatbelts
First registered on January 20th 1966, ‘JWY 606D’ was ordered in Opalescent Maroon with a full Dark Red Leather interior, Biscuit Roof lining and Red carpets. Fitted with a Manual Overdrive transmission, it was exported to South Africa where it remained until being repatriated in 2005. The then owner totally dismantled the car and stored all parts in boxes where it was left until sold to an independent Jaguar specialist. During the subsequent restoration, the bodyshell was fully sandblasted, primed and resprayed and the underbody fully Waxoyled. The engine was thoroughly overhauled with the crankshaft re-ground, all bearings and gaskets replaced and fitted with new pistons, piston rings, camshafts, valves, rings, valve seats and shims, as well as a new water pump and oil pump. The gearbox and rear axle were refurbished with a new flywheel and clutch. A new stainless steel exhaust system was fitted along with new suspension, springs, steering arms, swing arms, bushes and anti-roll bar. All brake and fuel lines were replaced and new brake discs and pads were fitted along with new front calipers. The leather was fully treated and new carpets, roof lining and door cards were installed. All the woodwork has been refurbished along with the instrument dials.
According to the vendor this Jaguar starts, runs and drives very well with good oil pressure and no overheating. It is thought to have never had any welding done to either floorpan or chassis, due to the warm South African climate. The car is offered with a current V5C and a history file containing a detailed list of works carried out during restoration, an old V5 and sundry invoices.
