JAGUAR MARK II 3.4 Manual Overdrive 1961

vehicle overview

1961 Jaguar MK II 3.4 Saloon Manual Overdrive. Opalescent dark blue with light blue leather. Introduced in 1959, the MKII has long been Jaguar's best-loved sports saloon. Its combination of svelte good looks, strong performance and gentlemen's club interior has successfully charmed every passing generation. Based around a more sophisticated version of its MKI predecessor's monocoque bodyshell equipped with independent coil-and-wishbone front suspension, a Panhard-rod located 'live' rear axle and four-wheel disc brakes, the newcomer was powered by a choice of race-bred 2.4 litre, 3.4 litre and 3.8 litre XK DOHC straight-six engines. Although, slower on paper than their range-topping 3.8 litre siblings, the 3.4 litre cars nonetheless boasted some 210bhp and 216lbft of torque, outputs sufficient to ensure a circa 120mph top speed and spirited acceleration (especially when fitted with the desirable four-speed manual plus overdrive gearbox). Previously the subject of an extensive, 'ground up' restoration, this handsome MKII is offered for sale with numerous bills and invoices chronicling its refurbishment and is still in super condition today. The door shuts and gaps are some of the best we have seen and the paintwork has a tremendous lustre. The private registration number stays with the car and is transferable. During the past 12 moths over £2200 has been spent keeping this car in the lovely condition you see today. The Jaguar is fitted with Coombs spats which really set the car off along with its painted wire wheels. Power steering is also fitted which makes this car a pleasure to drive. On test drive the car performed well and easily kept up with modern traffic, the engine pulls well with good oil pressure. The Jaguar MK II is a very popular classic with many clubs and a huge parts backup service. This car is just waiting to be enjoyed in new hands and will grace any showground or collection. Absolutely any inspection is welcome and viewing is highly recommended. All major debit cards accepted. Part exchange welcome. Free U.K mainland delivery. Please call for any further information.
