The Interior

Sympathetically preserved

Green carpets and leather seats

Wood trim and dashboard

The Jaguar MkII is known for being one of the first luxury sports saloons and with an interior as clean as it is, this example proves that fact right. The green leather seats combined with the restored wood trim throughout the cabin make for a stylish place to be, worthy of the MkII moniker. The seats wear some slight patination, lending this Jaguar a lovely original feel.

Climbing into the driver’s seat, you feel the quality of the varnished wooden steering wheel and take note of the beautiful array of dials, toggles and switches, capturing the essence of 1960s performance motoring. 

From a comfortable and slightly elevated position in the rear seats, passengers enjoy an excellent view over the beautifully well-maintained cabin with every feature looking just as resplendent as it was when the car left the factory in 1964. This is attributed to an in-depth interior and exterior restoration which has been exquisitely maintained to date.

The Exterior

Beautiful and iconic styling

Opalescent Dark Green

Underneath protected thanks to undersealed chassis

With the distinctive layout of headlights and grille, the Jaguar leaping its way from the bonnet, and teardrop shape cabin rising from the flowing curve of the body, the Jaguar MkII shape is one of the best in classic automotive design. One can understand why people were so enamoured by the model in its heyday. 

This Jaguar is finished in a striking and brilliantly preserved metallic Opalescent Dark Green, which resonates the Jaguar racing colours of the day. The body is then complimented by factory-finished silver-painted wire spoke wheels.

The brilliant condition of the car’s exterior continues to the underside with a very well-preserved chassis, a result of a thorough Waxoyl underseal. The car should be protected for years to come.

The meticulous current owner points out some minor blemishes on the bodywork that may be visible upon thorough inspection, but these are quite superficial.

Both bumpers were refinished within the last ten years, with the chrome all around still looking in great condition. Even as recently as this year, the roof was subject to a minor paintwork repair and respray.

The Mechanics

Over £24,000 of work carried out recently

Resprayed engine bay looks amazing

Brakes and steering extensively overhauled and upgraded

The current owner informs us that the car wasn’t fully mechanically sound when he took possession of it in 2018. Since then, a great deal of work has gone into ensuring the car could be driven daily or for long distances without any issue.

Work as recent as 2021 has gone into refining and upgrading steering, and brakes, with upgrades including: full hydraulic power steering system, new tyres and new braking system components. According to the vender, this MkII now drives excellently. 

During the recent full engine rebuild, the current owner also commissioned installation of a new clutch and cooling system, which ensures the transmission changes gear smoothly while the engine runs excellently.

The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
