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.
