This 3.8 Jaguar Mk.II was originally exported to Australia in 1962, then finished in gunmetal grey with red interior and fitted with an automatic gearbox. While in New South Wales, the car was converted from automatic to manual with overdrive gearbox and painted white with black interior. Imported to the United Kingdom in 1989, it was then the subject of a ground up restoration over many years. On stripping the car back to bare metal, the body shell was found to be almost completely rust free apart from two tiny holes in the sills. A new cross member was welded in place as the original had been used for jacking up the car and was beyond repair. Once all the repairs had been carried out, the body shell was sand blasted and repainted to Indigo Blue. Mechanically, this Jaguar has been completely rebuilt and up-rated; the engine balanced by Roe Engineering of Fleet in Hampshire, and coupled to a Getrag five-speed, fully synchromesh gearbox using a diaphragm clutch. The suspension has been up rated with a Vicarage rear coil spring conversion with trailing arms, new anti-roll bars and new Koni shock absorbers. Vicarage hydraulic power assisted steering has also been fitted and the brakes have all been modernised with Coopercraft vented brake discs and four pot brake callipers. Other items that have been up rated include a stainless steel exhaust system, aluminium radiator with an electronic Kenlow fan, alternator and a new heater matrix. The interior has also been re-trimmed with biscuit leather and the woodwork re-polished. This car is supplied with a V5C registration document, an MoT test certificate which expires in May 2013, old MoT certificates and some invoices and bills relating to the work carried out. A rare opportunity to purchase a first class Mk. II 3.8 which could just as easily be used as your every day car.

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?
