First registered in May 1968, this Old English White manual overdrive example is a late 240 model which had slimline bumpers and an Ambla, rather than leather, interior in order to keep it price competitive. Making up for these minor cost-cutting measures was a new straight port head, new inlet manifold and new HS6 SU carbs which raised the power of the 2.4-litre engine from 120bhp to 133bhp with more torque to boot.
Invoices on file show that the bodywork was restored in 2001 and the engine was fully rebuilt at the same time, old MOTs showing that the car has only covered around 1,000 miles since.
Our vendor acquired the car in 2014 to use at his daughter’s wedding, treating it to a full repaint and new chrome so that it would really look the part on her big day. As fate would have it the plans then got changed and the lovebirds decided to get hitched in Italy rather than in England. Naturally this involved yet more expense for dad and to add insult to injury, his newly sparkling Jaguar was now no longer required. Kids eh, who’d ‘ave ‘em?
Stored in a nice warm garage and barely used over the past few years, it has an MOT to June 2020 with no advisories recorded and comes with sundry invoices and a workshop manual. Starting promptly and running very sweetly indeed as we moved it around for these photos, this mechanically and cosmetically refreshed Jaguar looks irresistible at the modest guide price suggested.
