Hexagon Classics are very pleased to offer an excellent, upgraded example of the Jaguar MK II 3.8 manual sports saloon. Immortalised in countless 1960’s films and described at the time as ‘a convenient family car, a businessman’s express, a sports coupé and a grand tourer.’
SPECIFICATION INCLUDES: POWER STEERING, 5-SPEED GETRAG GEARBOX, DISC BRAKES, ELECTRONIC DISTRIBUTOR, ADJUSTABLE XJ40 SEATS, 17” POLISHED WOOD SPORTS STEERING WHEEL, POLISHED WOOD GEARKNOB, POLISHED WOOD DOOR CAPPINGS, COOMBS REAR ARCHES, CHROME 72-SPOKE WIRE WHEELS, VENTED BONNET, KENLOWE FAN, SEAT BELTS, HEATED REAR SCREEN, STAINLESS STEEL EXHAUST SYSTEM, RECENT FULL BARE METAL RESPRAY. ROOF AERIAL, STEREO & AMPLIFIER FITTED.
The 3.8 litre engine is like the unit used in the 3.8 E-Types, having the same block, crank, connecting rods and pistons (but different inlet manifold and carburation). A 3.8 litre with the 220 bhp engine could accelerate from 0-60 mph in 8.5 seconds and could reach a top speed of 125 mph. Law enforcement employed the Mk2 3.8 as their car of choice to enhance their arrest rate.
This MK II has recently undergone a complete back-to-bare metal respray. The car retains many of its original parts and was repainted inside and out by Hexagon Classics to an excellent standard.
The third owner kept the car for over 27 years and had the restoration commissioned between 2000 and 2011, primarily by marque experts J.D Classics, Bristol Classic Cars and J.E Lavender. It was vastly improved at great expense by the addition of several improvements to increase comfort, improve ease of use in modern traffic conditions, and of course add to the reliability.
Our car’s appearance is excellent, finished in gleaming British Racing Green paintwork and boasting a full magnolia hide re-trim carried out to the highest standard. The interior woodwork has been
veneered and professionally refinished alongside the fitting of upgraded Jaguar XJ40 seating. Chrome wire wheels and a Moto-Lita wooden steering add to the sports classic look. The result is a Jaguar Mk II that is ready to be used and enjoyed.
