Auction description:
Lot Number 104
1960 Jaguar Mark 2 3.8
Sold For £25,875
London
Chassis No. 200680 BW
Engine No. LC 6624-8
Documents: Italian Libretto

Desirable 3.8-Litre variant
Early chassis from the first full year of 3.8-Litre Mk 2 production
Less than 3,500 miles since completion of comprehensive restoration

More than 84,000 Mk 2s were produced between 1959 and 1967, of which just over 30,000 were 3.8-Litre versions. With spirited 125 mph performance--and a 0-60 mph time of 8.5 seconds as opposed to 11.9 seconds for the 3.4--the 3.8 was immediately in demand, and some 15,583 right-hand-drive 3.8s were manufactured, of which this is one such an example. Significantly, this is a very early car from the first full year of 3.8-Litre Mk 2 production and, as with most Jaguars, it is either the very early or very late production cars that typically are considered the most collectable.

The car is presented in the classic Jaguar colour scheme of British Racing Green with tan leather interior and was extensively restored in Italy roughly five years ago, having covered less than 3,500 miles since completion. While the car's early history is not known, it was first registered in Italy in 1990 and has remained in the Milan area until the present day. Originally supplied with Borg Warner automatic transmission, as denoted by the BW chassis number suffix, it has since been converted to the more desirable manual 4-speed (with overdrive) gearbox in order to maximise the available performance. Furthermore, the original engine was at some point replaced with a later Mk 2 3.8-litre engine.

A most attractive, capable and practical example of the most desirable of all Jaguar saloons, 200680 BW is ready to be enjoyed immediately and is accompanied by both ASI and original Italian registration documents, together with the distinctive--and increasingly scarce--boot-mounted Jaguar tool kit.

Spam prevention question (must be answered):
The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
