This 1967 Jaguar Mk II is a left-hand-drive saloon that was originally purchased by a Staff Sergeant in the US Air Force stationed at the RAF Mildenhall, who took delivery at the Jaguar works in Coventry. The car was reportedly imported to Fairbanks, Alaska in 1972 and moved to Washington State in 1996, where it was acquired by the seller three years later. The stock 2.4-liter powerplant was swapped for a 3.8-liter inline-six under previous ownership, and shifting is through a four-speed manual transmission and a Laycock overdrive unit. Subsequent work included a repaint in Silver Blue as well as installation of new carpets, an aftermarket brake booster, a resurfaced flywheel, and replacement front suspension components. A brake fluid flush was carried out in preparation for the sale. This Mk II is offered with its removed original engine and parts, a spare wheel and jack, service records, a Heritage Trust certificate, a 2019 appraisal, and a clean Oregon title in the seller’s name.
The four-door body was repainted in its original shade of Silver Blue by the seller as part of an auto body class. Prep work reportedly involved repair of dents below the headlamps as well as rust in the sills and lower front fenders. New weatherstripping was also installed. Blemishes include pitted chrome on the boot handle and taillamp housings, chips in the finish, and the hood and driver’s door are in need of alignment. Exterior equipment consists of dual fender mirrors, chrome bumpers with overriders, and rear wheel skirts.
Body-colored 15″ steel wheels wear chrome hubcaps and beauty rings, and are mounted with radial tires said to be in need of replacement due to age. A full-sized spare is housed in the trunk along with a screw jack and handle. The car is equipped with four-wheel disc brakes, and an aftermarket booster was added under current ownership. The removed stock master cylinder and booster are included with the sale. A brake fluid flush was completed in May 2020.
The cabin is trimmed in blue leather over low-backed bucket seats with shoulder belts. The seller notes separation due to shrinking leather on the top of the rear seat back. A new carpet kit was installed by the seller along with an aftermarket central locking system. An Audiovox cassette deck is mounted between the heater controls. The driver’s footwell kick panel is missing.
The window trim and dash are constructed of burl maple, with the latter housing Smiths gauges for water temperature, oil pressure, fuel level, and amperage above toggle switches in the center stack. The two-spoke steering wheel is mounted on an adjustable column and frames a tachometer with an analog clock and a 120-mph speedometer with a five-digit odometer showing 42k miles. Total mileage is unknown.
The stock 2.4-liter engine was replaced by a 3.8-liter inline-six under previous ownership, and the seller states that top-end work and installation of an electronic ignition module were performed to replicate XJ6 specifications. A GM single-wire alternator conversion was carried out during the seller’s ownership, and an oil change was performed 200 miles ago in 2018. The radiator is said to be missing an overflow pipe stub.
The four-speed manual gearbox routes power to the live rear axle via a Laycock de Normanville overdrive unit. A new clutch was installed and the flywheel resurfaced under current ownership, and disc brake wheel cylinders were rebuilt by White Post Restorations in Virginia. The front end has also reportedly been refurbished with new ball joints, tie rods, and bushings. Leaks are noted at the timing chain cover, oil pan, and rear main seal.
Parts and service receipts from the seller’s ownership are included in the sale, as is a 2019 appraisal report. The Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust certificate documents original drivetrain numbers, equipment, production data, and delivery details.
The removed 2.4-liter inline-six is stamped with #BJ7645-8 on the block and cylinder head, matching the original engine number identified on the Heritage Certificate. A removed stock generator is also included with the sale.
