1961 Jaguar MK II 3.8 Manual Overdrive. British Racing Green with Green leather upholstery and Chrome Wire Wheels. One of the most readily recognised cars of the 1960s thanks in part to countless appearances in films and on television, Jaguar's seminal Mark 2 saloon set the standard for the class throughout its entire production life and today remains highly prized by enthusiasts. Its immediate predecessor - the 'Mark 1' - had been introduced in 1956 and is of historic significance, being the Coventry firm's first unitary construction saloon car. The Mk2 offered better all-round visibility courtesy of larger windows, while the Mk1's rear wheel spats disappeared and the rear track was widened, which improved both roll-resistance and stability. The dashboard was redesigned with the speedometer and rev counter relocated in front of the driver, the six toggle switches and four minor gauges being set across the centre. Independent front suspension was by wishbone and coil springs, with a leaf-sprung live axle at the rear. This, combined with superior Dunlop disc brakes all round and a choice of 2.4, 3.4, or 3.8-litre XK engines, provided the discerning, enthusiast driver with one of the finest sports saloons available in the 1960s. In its ultimate, 3.8-litre, overdrive-equipped form, the Mk2 could reach 125mph with 60mph coming up in 8.5 seconds, impressive figures for a saloon of its size even by today's standards. Although there was a slight performance penalty with the optional Borg-Warner automatic transmission installed, the '3.8' in this form was an increasingly popular choice, particularly in the North American market. Representing the Jaguar Mark 2 in its ultimate 3.8-litre/overdrive configuration, this car was first registered to the previous owner in April 1991 having been extensively restored. The Jaguar has given much pleasure and never let the previous owner down. The Jaguar is fitted with power steering and makes the car a pleasure to drive, easily keeping up with modern traffic and very capable of long journeys. Still looking beautiful today and just waiting to be enjoyed in new hands. Absolutely any inspection is welcome. All major debit cards accepted. Delivery can be arranged.
