Car offered at:
This 1967 Jaguar MkII is a conscientiously restored and upgraded example of the classic luxury saloon, offered in neat and eminently usable condition.
Under the bonnet, the original 2.4-litre straight-six has been replaced with the rangetopping 3.8-litre unit, which drives the rear wheels via a four-speed manual transmission with overdrive.
The odometer shows 89,469 miles, however this is not warranted.
This MkII was restored and fitted with its 3.8-litre engine while in the care of its previous owner, who also had the bodywork resprayed and the interior retrimmed.
It has been with the seller since 2009, and actively used for local trips as his day-to-day companion.
This MkII has been refinished in silver over a reupholstered red vinyl-trimmed interior, punctuated by handsome wood trim on the dashboard and upper door cards.
It rides on a set of 15-inch wheels with polished trim rings and hub caps, shod in new Federal tyres at the front and older Maxxis items at the rear.
As mentioned above, the original 2.4-litre straight-six has been replaced with a 3.8-litre unit. A more modern California Gold radio/cassette player has also been fitted in the cabin.
The car will be sold with a Jaguar MkII service manual, car cover, wheel brace and jack, along with some recent service documentation and a note of the previous sale from 2009.
The seller is not aware of any bodywork damage, though they note that the sill sections and lower front wings have both been replaced and resprayed due to corrosion.
The silver paintwork presents very well, showing some stone chips and signs of use, including a crack in the finish by the top right-hand corner of the grille and in the top lefthand corner of the bonnet seam.
The cabin is similarly smart, with some stitching in the right-hand side of the driver’s seat cushion showing some wear.
The carpet has worn through on the left-hand side of the driver’s footwell, where the driver’s foot has brushed against it operating the clutch, there is a tear in the carpet at the base of the accelerator pedal, and the interior trim items and touchpoints feature a general time-earned ‘patina’.
The seller notes that the horn wiring developed a fault in the steering column and is now operated by a push button under the dash on the left of the steering column, and the map light does not function.
The car’s last inspection of roadworthiness was conducted prior to its registration in October 2022, and it holds valid New South Wales road registration through to 26 October 2023.
This MkII was most recently serviced in July 2022 by Peninsula Prestige at an indicated 88,500 kilometres. A full service, this included changing the gearbox oil, fitting a new rev generator, front brake pads, front tyres and horn button, adjusting the choke, adjusting and inspecting the front and rear suspension, performing a wheel alignment and tuning the handbrake.
A new Lucas starter motor was installed in September 2022.
The car has been in regular local use and maintained as required, with Peninsula Prestige carrying out regular maintenance since 2020.
Prior to that, some routine servicing was done by the seller, with other maintenance undertaken by Leaver Jaguar in Artarmon and Peninsula Sports Cars in Brookvale.
Routine parts, including brake pads and filters, have been sourced locally, as was the starter motor, which was sourced from Jagara Spares. SNG Barrat in the United Kingdom provided more unusual parts, or those not available locally.
