The Jaguar Mk II had just about everything a classic ‘60s saloon should have had: excellent performance, superb handling and stylish looks. The models successfully participated in saloon car racing, driven by the likes of Graham Hill, Roy Salvadori and Mike Parkes, and were often favoured by the criminal underworld as the perfect, fast getaway car! To many people, the Jaguar Mk II is the ultimate classic saloon, with performance to match – and often go beyond – many modern cars.
This sporting British Racing Green Saloon started life as a 3.4 automatic and we are told that it was upgraded to a 3.8 manual at some point in its earlier life, as was often the case with motor cars such as the Jaguar Mk II. By December 2015, Sigma Engineering had completed an engine rebuild to fast road specification and a detailed invoice for this work is included in the file. The original power steering has also been rebuilt recently, together with the fitting of a new brake servo to the standard braking system and the replacement of the gearbox solenoid. A Kenlowe fan and a replacement steering box have been installed and the radiator is reconditioned; furthermore, the front subframe mountings have been replaced, and the Jaguar is equipped with front heavy-duty suspension springs. The underside and suspension have been cleaned, checked and Waxoyled thoroughly. The Mk II sits on colour-coded wire wheels (of which some spokes will require attention) and a Moto-Lita wood-rimmed steering wheel. The interior is very smart in Champagne leather piped in green with matching carpets, and the door capping veneers and dashboard are mostly good.
KGJ 120D is supplied with most of its original tool kit and a new set of CMC door weatherstrips, together with a history file which includes the V5C registration certificate, an original handbook, a Jaguar sales and service list, a lubrication chart and a quantity of MOT test certificates and invoices.
