1966 JAGUAR MK2 3.4

Nick, who is the owner of this lovely 1966 Jaguar MK2 3.4, purchased the car in 2021 after selling a previous car purchased from ourselves. Nick has a bit of a bucket list for cars, and by his own admission, he is working through it by buying cars to enjoy and then selling them.

His last purchase was a Porsche 928, which he improved and enjoyed for 12 months before selling it on. Selling it made way for this MK2 Jaguar, another car on his list, and again, as you will read, he has carried out some work to improve it. This enabled him to enjoy it to its full potential taking it to places like Goodwood Revival or the occasional run out to the countryside for a pub meal on a Sunday afternoon.

Registered on 3rd February 1966, the Jaguar MK2 has been restored at some point by one of the previous keepers, but it is unclear as to how long ago this was. Nick just went on the car's condition, which is extremely well presented. With the MK2 Jag ticked off the bucket list, something else has caught Nick’s eye, which is why the sale of this British classic has come about.

On the Outside

Finished in the lovely colour of Carmen Red, which this 1966 MK2 Jaguar is well suited to. The vehicle is exceptionally well presented, but this hasn't been without an extreme amount of high level restoration work that has been carried out over several years.

Starting at the front of the 60s classic, the chrome work is in excellent condition with a bright finish and no apparent signs of tarnishing creeping in. The headlights and spotlights are in good order with no cracks in the lenses, and the reflectors within the unit appear to have a bright finish. Stone chips to the front end are minimal, and the Carmen Red paintwork looks fantastic. The bonnet aligns nicely, and the chrome bonnet edging strips are in good order. The windscreen is in good condition with no noticeable scratches to point out, and the seal is also in good order, having been replaced some time ago.

Around to the sides and looking down the lines of the MK2, everything looks to be in order. The swage lines are uninterrupted by dings or dents, and the door gaps look to be tight. The chrome work around the windows is in nice condition, with light age-related marks. The glass itself looks good too, with no heavy scratches to mention.

To the rear, everything looks to be in order. The light lenses are free from splits. Although the boot lid looks to align as it should, there is a small amount of damage on the nearside edge of the boot, which can be seen in the images. The bumper is in the same condition as the front, with a bright finish to it.

The wire wheels are in excellent condition, and they are complete with Jaguar knock offs. Vredestein tyres are fitted to the front and rear and have a good amount of tread remaining.

On the Inside

The main chunk of the interior looks to have been treated to a retrim at some point to revive some tired parts of the MK2 Jaguar. Finished in light tan, the seats are in excellent condition both in the front and rear, with the usual wear places such as the driver’s bolster free from any damage. The door cards are in the same condition, and are topped off with Walnut Burl, which is in excellent condition and which follows around the upper section of the door aperture and then around onto the dashboard of the Jaguar.

The dashboard is also in excellent condition, constructed in Walnut Burl. Sitting in the driver’s seat with this on view is a pleasant place to be. The Moto-Lita steering wheel compliments the dashboard and is in good order. Just behind, the instruments also look to be in good condition, with the odometer showing 75,849 miles. The gauges are working as they should, as are all the switches for the relevant lights and heaters and the overdrive button. Lower down is the period looking, or original radio, leading into the centre console.

Looking up, the headlining is held tightly with no areas for concern, and the carpets throughout are in nice condition, protected with a set of fitted mats to the front and rear.

Lifting the boot floor carpet reveals the spare wire wheel, which is in good condition, and the complete Jaguar tool kit sitting in place.

Underneath

The 3.4 litre straight-six engine fires up as it should; as can be seen in our video, the car comes to an even idle with no untoward noises coming from the engine. The vendor hasn’t carried out any work on the engine since he purchased the car 12 months ago. He simply got in it and enjoyed driving the classic Jaguar.

The car is nice to ride in, as you would expect, and there are no noises coming from the suspension or the 4-speed manual gearbox, which will slip into overdrive by moving a lever mounted on the steering column.

The underside of the Jaguar presents well. The vendor took the car to Winspeed, based in Guilford, who specialise in classic Jaguars. There they carried out some work to the front crossmember, chassis legs and radiator mounts. There were also new brake discs and pads fitted along with some other issues rectified, all of which can be seen in the paperwork section. At just over £6,000 later, the Jaguar was given a clean bill of health and ready to hit the road, which is just what our vendor did.

History Highlights

This is the perfect opportunity to step into a classic 1966 Jaguar MK2 3.4 straight-six. The vehicle has clearly been well maintained over the years, which can be seen from the extensive collection of paperwork that is included, showing parts purchased and work carried out to the Jag. With its most recent work carried out in July 2021, the Jag was given a thorough inspection of the underside, where over £6,000 was spent addressing these issues.

Due to the age of the vehicle, no MoT is required. The last one was carried out on 25th November 2020 at 75,282 miles, where it passed with no advisories. Therefore, although it was in 2020, it has only covered approximately 600 miles since that time.
