Only 48800 miles from new

Requires restoration

V5 present

First registered 24th January 1969

Said to have been in one family since new

Stored in a barn since 1992

Purchased new in 1969 for a young lady’s marriage, she continued using it until 1992

Her grandson eventually inherited the car but it remained in the barn until now

The mileage of 48,292 is believed to be genuine

Full service history up until car was stored in barn 30 years ago

Original bill of sale, every MOT confirming mileage, all service receipts. 

Even has original warranty card and original fuel ration book from the 1970s 

Road Tax and MOT exempt 

This car is on the government system and V5 is present

Sumptuous navy upholstery that appears complete but needing a good clean

Door cards and door furniture all present

Well appointed veneered dashboard

Some damage to veneer and wood at bottom of windscreen

Lacquer has cracked in places and there is crazing throughout

Veneered door cappings appear in good condition, but would benefit from a re-polish

Carpets present, but in need of a thorough clean

 The Exterior 

The car has cleaned up remarkably well, after being removed from the barn where it spent the past thirty years

The front end was better protected from the elements than the rear

Most of the paintwork has survived in tact

Evidence of corrosion, especially towards the rear: boot lid, door bottoms, wheel arches and wheels

Chrome trim strip along bonnet missing

Leaping Jaguar bonnet mascot still present

External chrome trim is pitted throughout

Some corrosion to the steel wheels, four Jaguar-badged hubcaps still present

Auction description:

1969 Jaguar MK2- 2.4/240 Barn Find

Colour White

Odometer 48,292 Miles

Engine size 2483

Auction DetailsSeller Type Private

Town Canvey Island

Location Essex

Country United Kingdom

Great potential as a restoration project

We understand that it was previously owned by the same family from new

Stored in a barn since 1992

First registered 24th January 1969

We understand the car was owned by one family from new until the last owner acquired it

Used by the same lady since 1969 and stored in a barn since 1992

Her grandson eventually inherited the car but it remained in the barn until recently

The 48,292 miles displayed on the odometer is believed to be warranted

Comprehensive service history up until car was stored in the barn over thirty years ago

The original bill of sale, every MOT confirming mileage and all service invoices are reportedly present 

Some period paperwork included the warranty card and original fuel ration book from the 1970s 

Road Tax and MOT exempt due to its age

V5C present and registered with the DVLA

The Interior

This interior appears complete and untouched in many years which is a great starting point for restoration

Upholstered in stylish blue leather which appears complete although in need of restoration

The door cards look to be complete with all their handles and trims

The veneered dashboard has suffered somewhat over time but all the instrumentation and switchgear appears to be present and in reasonable condition

The veneered door cappings appear in good condition, but would benefit from refinishing

The carpets are present, but now show their age

The Exterior 

Since leaving the barn where it had sat for thirty years, the Jaguar has cleaned up remarkably well

It would appear the front end was better protected from the elements than the rear

Most of the paintwork has survived and it now has a pleasing patination to the bodywork

There is evidence of corrosion, especially towards the rear and encompassing the boot lid, door bottoms, wheel arches and wheels

We note the chrome trim strip along bonnet is unattached but present with the car

The Jaguar ‘Leaper’ still stands proudly atop the bonnet

The chrome trim is pitted, unsurprisingly

There is some corrosion to the steel wheels, four Jaguar-badged hubcaps still present 

The tyres will of course need to be replaced

The Mechanics 

Powered by the legendary DOHC six-cylinder XK engine in 2.4-litre form

Fuelling courtesy of twin SU HS6 carburettors

The engine compartment has a general layer of dirt and surface corrosion as expected from years in storage

Column shift automatic transmission

Naturally, a full technical inspection is will be required as no attempt to start or drive this car has been made for a number of years

NOTE: Vehicle will require collection by trailer or transporter as it does not start or drive
