This is an early Jaguar Mk II 3.4 Automatic, finished in Carmen Red with a restored red leather interior. The car was exported to Australia in 1960 and brought back to England in 1991 with accompanying paperwork. The car has been owned from 1992 by the present owner to 2020, therefore would seem to have had two owners throughout its life, and there is a declaration by the second owner that it has covered less than 100 miles in 16 years. There is a build sheet from Browns Lane showing the car has matching numbers.
The engine and automatic gearbox were rebuilt in 2004 with accompanying paperwork. There are two files of paperwork showing the engine and gearbox rebuild, as well as general maintenance and parts purchases. The car starts easily on the auto choke and settles after a few minutes to an even idle. Water temperature is good due to its re-cored radiator, and the oil pressure good as well. The car runs on unleaded petrol, the head being converted during the engine rebuild, and is itemised in the rebuild history. The DG gearbox changes up and down well and affords a fair turn of speed. There is a fuel pump isolator in the boot, and a battery isolator under the bonnet. The electrical system has been converted to negative earth. The car is fitted with a new aerial and period looking MP3 radio, and though the pictures show the car sitting on steel wheels, it has just been fitted with painted wires with new hubs and spinners.
Overall, although not concourse, an interesting and collectible example of the marque.
