Car to be at auction 9/15
classiccars.brightwells.com/viewdetails.php

Auction description:
Lot number 64
Estimate £24,000 - £28,000
Description Jaguar MkII 3.4 Manual Overdrive
Registration VRS 212
Year 1961
Colour British Racing Green
Engine size 3,442 cc
Chassis No. 154177DN046072
Engine No. KG7135-8
Documents V5C; MOT August 2016; handbooks etc

First registered in Aberdeen in March 1961, this lovely 3.4 has the desirable 4-speed manual with overdrive gearbox that makes the most of the car's prodigious performance. Finished in classic British Racing Green with a Suede Green interior, it appears to have had just three owners to date (the first right up until 1999) and is said by the vendor to remain "in remarkably original condition and the indicated mileage of just over 70,000 is believed to be correct".

Originally ordered with steel wheels, a nice set of chrome wires have latterly been fitted although the original wheels are also included in the sale and are reportedly in fine shape. The woodwork and chrome are also in excellent condition, together with the headlining which has been professionally replaced.

The vendor, who has had several Jaguars in the past, considers the performance of the engine to be "above average" for a 3.4 and also mentions that the Moss gearbox is in very good order and changes up and down the range without difficulty. Clearly an unusually well-preserved and cherished example, it is offered here with the original owner's handbook, an original sales brochure, the original Aberdeen VRS 212 registration number, several old MOT certificates and a current MOT valid to August 2016.

Widely regarded as being the sweetest running model in the MkII range, it is only badge snobbery that keeps 3.4 values down when compared to the 3.8, making it perhaps the smartest buy today.

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?
