1959 Jaguar Mk 2 3.4

Very early production Mark 2

Documented Australian history

Manufactured in October 1959 around the same time this new Jaguar model was being launched to the public at the London Motor Show, this very early build Mk 2 3.4 was among the first examples to be imported into Australia. It was sold new by Brysons in Richmond (Victoria) in 1960 and so began a documented sequence of just five local owners. Significantly, this car is such an early build that it has many detail features of the concurrent Jaguar Mk 1 that were changed on later Mk 2 production models. Our vendor purchased this Jaguar in late 1995 after it had been in storage under cover for 19 years, and then began a gentle refurbishment and repair of what is a nicely original Mark 2. After the removal of rust in the door sills, jacking points and lower mudguard sections, new panels were fitted and finished and the whole car repainted in its original Cream acrylic lacquer. Inside, the Light Blue leather upholstery was retrimmed, as were the carpets and headlining. The woodwork was also rejuvenated, and new window and boot rubbers fitted, along with a new boot mat. In 2000, the 3.4 litre Jaguar six and three-speed Borg Warner automatic transmission were removed and reconditioned, the carburettors rebuilt, a manual override switch fitted for the auto choke, and the speedo repaired, recalibrated and reset. The braking system was recently rebuilt too, with new booster and lines, and a reconditioned master cylinder. A new windscreen was also fitted, along with some vendor’s personal modifications including a louvered bonnet to assist summer cooling, narrow-style rear spats to assist wheel changes, a limited slip differential from a 3.8 engined Mk 2 and fitting an engine-bay transmission dipstick from a later Mk 2. Today, this Jaguar Mk 2 3.4 presents in lovely condition throughout. Sitting on a set of silver-painted wires, the Jag’s paintwork is excellent, as is the bodywork trim, while the new leather inside is settling in nicely. The woodwork too is excellent, and a period push-button radio is featured. Indicating 9130 miles (at the time of cataloguing), which is the distance covered since its recalibration, the Mk 2 has been regularly maintained by Jaguar specialists, among them Mike Roddy. Supporting this Mk 2’s interesting history and significance, there are two large folders of the invoices and personal maintenance notes made by its five owners since hitting the road here in 1960. There’s also a Jaguar Heritage Trust certificate, spare keys, and the original bonnet and rear wheel spats. A lovely example and a significant car, if you’re in the market for a Jaguar Mk 2, this is the one to have.

Previously on Victorian club registration, the 1959 Jaguar Mark 2 3.4 is being offered for sale here unregistered.

Spam prevention question (must be answered):
The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
