Seller's description:
1961 Jaguar MkII 3.4
Colour Red
Odometer 24,631 Miles
Engine size 3400
• South African import
• Beautifully presented
• Excellent underside
• Original interior
• Registered certificate present
• Jaguar Heritage Trust Certificate
• Matching numbers

The MK2 was manufactured on the 9th November 1961 and sold by Sagers, Bulawayo of Rhodesia, South Africa. It spent many years in South Africa until it was exported to the UK in 2016, and registered on the 1st July 2016. It was then purchased by the seller and shipped to Spain, where it now resides.

The car is currently on historic Spanish registration plates H 378 BBF, but is still recorded in the UK with the DVLA on 283 UYS, so this wouldn’t be a big issue bringing it back into the UK. As the vehicle is located in Spain, the seller has also mentioned that he can arrange transportation to any UK mainland address if required at an additional cost.

THE INTERIOR
• Interior in good condition
• Excellent condition Walnut Burl
• Moto-Lita wood rim steering wheel

While the interior is in good condition, as you would expect, the beige leather seats have some light creasing, but there is no damage to be seen on the front or rear seats. The door cards are also in good condition, with just some light patina to the armrests. Finished with Walnut burl door cappings, these are in good order with no signs of peeling or cracking to the lacquered finish.

The Walnut trim continues onto the fabulous dashboard, which again, is free from any splits or cracks, and the finish of the veneer is in excellent condition. The instruments are reported to be working as they should and have clear faces with no scratches apart from the clock as the car was changed to negative earth and the clock will only function on positive earth. The odometer shows a reading of 24,631 miles which is thought to be 124,631 miles. The steering wheel has been replaced with a wood rim Moto-Lita item to match the dashboard.

The carpets and headlining are both in good order, with minor wear to the carpets and no sagging to the headlining. The boot area is carpeted, which is in good order and in just the same condition as the cabin carpets. The seller also confirms the car comes with the relevant tools and accessories and will supply the original steering wheel.

THE EXTERIOR
• Metallic Red paintwork
• Bright chromework
• Original wire wheels

The exterior of this 1961 Jaguar MK2 has been restored whilst in South Africa. Finished in Metallic Red, the car presents really well. Starting at the front, there are just a few small stone chips to the front end. The chrome is in nice condition with no immediate signs of tarnishing, and the lights are free from any cracks in the lenses.

Looking down the flanks of the 60s icon, there are no dings or dents to point out, and the doors look to align as they should. There are a couple of small blisters at the bottom of the doors. The chrome window trim all appears to be in good condition with minimal tarnishing in keeping with the age of the vehicle.

To the rear, the boot lid aligns as it should, and the light lenses are free from any damage. The wire wheels are in good order with no apparent signs of any corrosion, and the tyres are virtually new having been replaced less than 2,000 miles ago.

THE MECHANICS
• XK 3.4 litre Straight-six
• Power steering
• Recent shock absorbers and springs
• Negative earth conversion

The 3.4-litre straight-six has reportedly been well maintained and, during its time in Spain has received some upgrades to enhance the driving experience of the MK2. These have included the addition of power steering, a brake servo and new shock absorbers and springs, and there is also the conversion to negative earth to mention.

The Jaguar is reported to start and drive as it should, there are no untoward noises coming from the transmission, and the MK2 pulls through the gears well. Bringing the car to a halt is quite easy thanks to the brake servo upgrade, and it does so as you would expect.

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?
