Auction description:

To be auctioned on Monday, September 8, 2014

Lot 125

1961 Jaguar Mark 2 4.2 Saloon

Sold for £70,000

Chassis no. 177361 DN

Engine no. ZB 52653-9

According to its Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate, this car was originally finished in Pearl Gray with a red interior, and it was equipped with a 3.4-litre engine. It was completed on 6 July 1961 and exported to Jaguar Cars in New York City bearing Coventry registration 9441 DU. This Mark 2's first owner is noted as J.C. Walker, and according to the consignor, it is believed to have been originally restored and modified in the United States.

This power-packed "sleeper" is sure to delight any enthusiast who desires squashing the egos of more exalted saloon drivers. It is fitted with a powerful, high-torque Jaguar 4.2 motor with triple SU carburettors, which is rated at 265 brake horsepower at 5,400 rpm and has 283 foot-pounds of torque. It is mated to a five-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential, to take full advantage of its power.

This elegant super Saloon is refinished in Ebony Black with a lovely Biscuit leather interior, and it includes numerous luxury and performance upgrades, including power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering, uprated engine cooling, a modern ignition system, a stainless steel exhaust system, four-wheel disc brakes, Koni adjustable dampers, rear-wheel arches from Coombs of Guildford, 16x6-inch JD Competition chrome wire wheels, air conditioning, a Derrington wood-rimmed steering wheel, central locking, reclining seats, a security system, new seat belts, new burl wood trim, new chrome trim, and an upgraded entertainment system, which includes a Sony multi-disc CD player and a hands-free telephone.

In 2011, the car came into the ownership of a Mr Tim Johnson, who had it delivered to noted Jaguar experts at J.D. Classics in September of that year for extensive mechanical refurbishment. The work performed on the car included an engine and rear-axle overhaul, as well as an overhaul on numerous other small but critical items, resulting in invoices totalling to approximately £52,000.

Even though more than 28,000 Mark 2 Saloons were produced between 1960 and 1967, it would be difficult to find another quite like this one, as it presents handsomely, with its gleaming paint, fresh interior, and Jaguar's reliable and largest XK motor under the louvered bonnet. With only 7,000 miles recorded since its restoration, this comfortable, fast, and very usable Jaguar is capable of showing its heels to many modern saloons and sports cars alike.

Monaco

Lot 161

1961 Jaguar Mark 2 4.2-Litre 'Custom'

€60,000 - €70,000 EUR

Chassis No. 177361 DN

Cylinder Head No. ZB 52653-9

Documents Swiss Carte Grise

Startling performance in an elegant package; a fascinating “Q-Ship” executed in the finest English tradition

Extensive driveline and chassis upgrades; powered by a Hi-Po 4.2-litre XK engine with triple-SU carburettors and a manual five-speed transmission

Benefits from over 149,000 CHF-worth of professional restoration work executed under current ownership

Desirably equipped with centre-lock wire wheels, AM/FM radio, air conditioning, limited-slip differential, adjustable Koni suspension, disc brakes, and power steering

This US-market Mark 2 was originally finished in Pearl Gray with a red interior during July 1961; it was previously restored and modified to 4.2-litre specifications during its time in the United States. In 2014 it was purchased by the consignor, exported to their home in Switzerland, and subsequently submitted for a complete restoration by Rebellion Motors in Lausanne.

This power-packed “sleeper” is fitted with a powerful, high-torque Jaguar 4.2-Litre “XK” motor with triple-SU carburettors, which is rated at 265 brake horsepower at 5,400 rpm and has 283 foot-pounds of torque. It is mated to a five-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential, to take full advantage of its power. Under the consignor’s ownership, this remarkable Jaguar custom has been treated to more than 149,000 CHF-worth of mechanical and cosmetic restoration work completed by Rebellion Motors, and Oldtimer Center Ostschweiz in St. Margrethen between 2015 and 2017.

During this work, the body was completely removed, stripped, and repaired with new metal, and then masterfully repainted in Ebony Black. Other items of note include a major engine rebuild, rebuilds for the three SU carburettors, as well as new gaskets, lines, seals, throughout many of the car’s major systems. Much of the car’s hardware was also zinc-plated and re-chromed.

As presented today, this fascinating and well-cared-for custom includes numerous luxury and performance upgrades, including power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering, uprated engine cooling, a modern ignition system, a stainless steel exhaust system, four-wheel disc brakes, Koni adjustable dampers, rear wheel arches from Coombs of Guildford, 16x6-inch JD Competition chrome wire wheels, air conditioning, a Derrington wood-rimmed steering wheel, central locking, a security system, rich burl wood trim, and an upgraded entertainment system.

Although more than 28,000 Mark 2 Saloons were produced between 1960 and 1967, it would be difficult to find another quite like this “Q-Ship”.

Please note this lot has entered the EU on a temporary import bond, which must be cancelled either by exporting the lot outside of the EU on an approved Bill of Lading with supporting customs documentation or by paying the applicable VAT and import duties to have the lot remain in the EU.
