To be offered for sale by Silverstone Auctions at The Silverstone Classic Sale 2019 to be held at The Wing Building, Silverstone Circuit, United Kingdom, NN12 8TN from July 26, 2019 to July 28, 2019. Guide price: £25000 - £30000. 3.4-litre car with a manual gearbox and overdriveFinished in its original colours of Pearl Grey over red leatherCoombs-style wheel arches and bonnet. Wood-rim wheel with Jaguar horn pushEngine fully rebuilt (£6K). Polished crank, bores honed, pistons, D-Type cams, oil pump and clutchSupplied with a Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate. '410 ECY' will remain with the car  Manufactured in December 1962 and finished in the original colours of Pearl Grey with a Red interior, this is a fine example of Jaguars famous sports saloon with a manual/overdrive gearbox. The Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate that accompanies the car indicates that the original supplying dealer was Nortons and various invoices and items of paperwork suggest that it has spent most of its life with just five former keepers in the East of England.The car sits square and true on chrome wire wheels and sports Coombs-style rear wheel arches, bonnet louvres, and a period-style wood-rim steering wheel fitted with the Mk2 horn push. The interior is lovely with lightly patinated red leather and the dashboard and door cap veneers appear in good shape. From the history file, we can glean that the bottom end was rebuilt in 2000 and most recently the engine has been fully rebuilt at a cost of around £6,000. The crankshaft was polished, the bores honed, fitted with new pistons, bearings, D-Type cams, valves, new oil pump, clutch and a straight-through exhaust. Our vendor, an accomplished Historic racer, has recently covered over 1,000 miles in the car and he is enthusiastic about the way the car performs and handles. The classic 'three by three' number plates (410 ECY) will remain with the Jaguar.Amongst enthusiasts, it's generally accepted that the 3.4-litre is a sweeter handling car than the 3.8, and only gives away 10bhp to its larger engined sibling, however, it doesn't really matter as the Mk2 Jaguar is an absolutely classic 'Classic'. All the key ingredients are there, the bark of the exhaust note, the slick manual gearbox, the delightful Smiths dials, the row of rocker switches, the indefinable aroma of lived-in leather and varnished wood, and that view down the long bonnet to the gleaming mascot. Addictive.This is a lovely example of these iconic sporting saloons, on the button and ready to please.
