Chassis Number 156356

Odometer reading 83,000 miles

Finished in the lovely original period colour scheme of pearl grey with a contrasting red interior, this fine example was purchased new via Coombs and Sons of Guilford by R.F.H. Porter on 12th August 1961 as detailed by the original order form in the car's file. According to the document, it was fitted with a badge bar, wind-up radio aerial and reclining seats. The current owner purchased the car in 1988 from Colin Richards who used it as a second car. The owner informs us the engine is 9/10 with interior, transmission and paintwork all 8/10 and so represents a fine example all round having had extensive work carried out by K & N Classics of Bosham in 2011-2012.
The car is accompanied by an original operating, maintenance and service booklet and distributor booklet all in its original plastic wallet. Various bills for sundry items accompany the car plus bills from Jaguar specialist's Classis Car Electrical Services in Chichester dating from 2010 detailing work carried out including amongst others the refitting of front lamps, clean-up of interior switches, remove fuel pump and clean, strip and clean fuel filter and a general tidy-up totalling over £1,000. Later in 2011, a full carpet set was fitted with underfelt, the leather seats were removed and treated with leather food while the dash board was completely removed and varnished totalling over £2,000.Further documentation includes an original Shell Lubrication booklet; supplied with a good history file and presented in its original and desirable colour scheme, this Mk.II is indeed a fine example.
