Offered here is a 1965 Jaguar MkII 3.4 that was supplied new in Bath, Somerset, and was first registered on the 26th August 1965. Finished in its factory colour of Golden Sand, ‘DHY’ is understood to be among the earliest MkII saloons to benefit from Jaguar’s all-synchromesh gearbox as opposed to the less co-operative Moss ‘box found aboard its older siblings. Further able to boast Laycock de Normanville overdrive and the freer revving 3.4 litre engine, the four-seater’s specification makes it, for some, ‘the MK2 to have’. With known former keepers, the car is still accompanied by a copy of the old buff logbook. ‘DHY’ had been specified with many options; they encompassed: A Jaguar dealer-supplied radio with aerial; reclining seats; front seat belts; Fog Ranger front lamps; metallic paint; Triplex front windscreen; two sets of keys; wing mirrors and a lockable petrol cap.
In current ownership since 2012, ‘DHY’ has been the subject of much expense and improvement that has included the overhaul of the engine and numerous other works. A summary of parts fitted includes:
Blockley radial tyres, Full brake overhaul, front & rear, master cylinder / handbrake cable, Re-tempered rear springs, GAZ adjustable rear shock absorbers, Rear differential overhaul (Specialist AJS), All-rear suspension bushes, Overdrive unit full overhaul, Wheel bearings
