Car at auction 11/23
British Racing Green
This Jaguar MkII is an elegant classic sports saloon, presented in an attractive colour scheme and in honest, useable condition.
It is powered by a 2.4-litre ‘XK6’ straight-six, producing around 120bhp, and driving the rear wheels via a four-speed manual transmission with overdrive.
The seller reports that the mileage is around 31,000 miles, however this is not warranted.
The car has been with its current and sixth owner for four years.
EQUIPMENT AND FEATURES
This MkII is now finished in British Racing Green over a green leather-trimmed interior, punctuated by wood trim on the dashboard, door cards, and window frames.
It rides on a set of 15-inch body-coloured painted steel wheels with chrome finishers and chrome hubcaps, shod in Hifly HF201 tyres.
The specification includes a two-spoke Bakelite steering wheel, Smiths gauges, toggle switches, electric windscreen wipers, a Motorola radio, heating and ventilation, push-out front and rear quarter light windows, and a locking glove compartment.
The colour has been repainted to British Racing Green from the lighter green hue visible in some of the images, and the dynamo has been swapped for a dynamotor.
The car comes with the original owner’s maintenance and service handbook, a workshop manual, a list of work performed in current ownership, and the tool kit.
Specific notes from the seller include: the car was stripped, the front offside inner and outer wings replaced, and the car was resprayed in its current British Racing Green hue, which now shows a couple of chips here and there. Inside, there is a slight split on the back seat which I have done my best to repair, and the woodwork needs re-lacquering. Overall, the interior is quite good for the age of the car.
The vehicle is understood to be exempt from mandatory MOT testing due to its age.
The seller notes that during their ownership the car’s dynamo was swapped to a dynamotor in December 2022, a new clutch was fitted and the brake servo and brakes were overhauled all in September 2022, and the car was stripped and repainted to its current British Racing Green hue in July 2022. The seller also notes the engine oil and filter have also been replaced during ownership.
