Description

Although the Mk I was a great success, selling four times as many as the larger Jaguar saloons, Jaguar boss William Lyons was not content. He knew it could be improved.

Happily, virtually every aspect that had been criticised received attention in the new MkII range introduced in October 1959. These cars were to rank among the best loved Jaguars ever made and are today regarded as classics. There were some detail changes, including a redesigned interior that was more modern but retained the traditional Jaguar image.

Jaguar saloons led the field in production and touring car races during much of the 1960’s. Not surprisingly the quickest and most successful private entries came from John Coombs’ Jaguar dealership in Guilford. John Coombs had significant race experience and his dealership simply got it right for a fortunate few racing enthusiasts. Very early on that included Hill, Salvadori and Salmon.

This desirable 3.4 litre manual example with overdrive, is offered with a good history file containing numerous invoices and APK technical report. Registered in the Netherlands until 03/03/20 the car is ready to be enjoyed by its next owner.
