1961 JAGUAR MK.II 4.2 – **NOW SOLD** For Sale

**NOW SOLD** - Thanks for all your interest....

This special Jaguar Mk.II is the former property of the late Jeff Uren, retired BSCC driver famed for his engineering and tuning skills which led to his renowned work with the Ford Cortina Mk.II Savage and Ford Capri Stampede which remain a hit with Ford aficionados to this day.

He bought this Jaguar in Bedfordshire in January 2000 after the then-owner had invested many ££’s and close to two years having the car restored by Flying Cat Engineering of Royston, Hertfordshire. There is photographic record of the extent of the restoration, which included cutting-out and repairing and welding new sections, front cross member, crow’s feet, stays, front valance, sills, floor sections, rear wheel arches, doors, rear valance, boot lid, spring hangers, inner wheel arches and splash panels, and also to strip, prepare and respray the car in original colour of British Racing Green. All this work took from April 1996 to the finishing touch headlining in 1998.

From the Spring of 2000 after owning the car for just a handful of months, Jeff started to identify problems with the original 3.4 engine. It was reported to be running too limply when cold, then running too hot and burning oil, etc. Peter Cooper from CooperCraft was consulted throughout. By October 2000, a solution was discussed and a decision made; At Jeff’s instruction, the team at CooperCraft would fit a healthy 4.2 engine from a Jaguar 420G and a 5-speed Getrag gearbox to the Mk.II. Driving this car today, it’s a wonder every Mk.II owner hasn’t done it!

The transformation is remarkable. The security you feel from being able to keep up with modern traffic means you’re able to use this car any day of the year. Thanks also to some later modifications from CooperCraft including replacing the brake servo and reservoir valve the car stops as you would expect, pulling up tight and in a straight line. Upgrades to the front sub frame, new bushes, new front chassis legs, coil springs, and shock absorbers also add to the overall solid feeling you return from the car on the road.

Sadly, Jeff contracted cancer aged 81 in late 2005. As a result he sold many assets, including this Jaguar in February 2006 to his neighbour, a local garage owner. Jeff died in April 2007, but his car lived on with his friend and neighbour being enjoyed for ten years and countless family weddings until we were fortunate to be able to buy this car in the Spring of 2016. We sold it shortly afterwards, and are now proud to have it back in stock again for its next fortunate custodian.

This Jaguar has now had just five former keepers and is accompanied by its original registration number and original Manufacturer’s Warranty showing delivery via A.J. Beal of Exeter to one Dr. D.M Green of Sidmouth on 26th July 1961. It’s sold with two sets of keys, current MOT to March 2019 and a host of past MOT’s, not to mention the many invoices for restorative and maintenance works over the years.

This Mk.II was treated to a full health-check and fluids service when we supplied it in August 2016. Since then, many hours have been spent by its enthusiastic new keeper in treating and enhancing the interior wood and leather to great effect. Further monies have been invested to replace both bottom ball joints, one upper joint, sandwich mounts, exhaust mount, replacement fuel pump and pipes, replacement thermostat and exchanging the gearbox oil. Resultantly, ‘841 JTT’ is now a very sound car indeed.

Very few classic cars feel so tight and proven as this car. The timeless BRG with Tan leather interior has aged gracefully, and the fact that this car hasn’t been restored to perfection, is exactly what makes it ‘perfect’ in our eyes….
