Car offered at:

Seller's description:

1964 Jaguar MK2

Colour Red

Odometer 47,702 Miles

Engine size 3781

Seller Type Private

Town Heywards Heath

Location Sussex

Country United Kingdom

Boasts the eminently desirable specification of a 3.8-litre straight-six, a manual gearbox and overdrive

Presented in wonderful condition with a few tasteful upgrades to the mechanicals and interior

Accompanied by extensive documentation

A real contender if your looking for a special MkII

V5C present

Originally exported to South Africa

The car returned to the UK in 2001 and was restored in 2002

There have been three UK owners since it was imported

In 2004, we’re informed that the engine was extensively overhauled by Kent High Performance at a cost of over £3,000

The vendor informs us that the car has only covered around 3,000 miles since

A further service / recommission with Kent High Performance in August 2020 amounted to a little over £2,500

Accompanied by a spare parts catalogue along with Intereurope and Haynes workshop manuals

There is a ringbinder cataloguing invoices for servicing

The clutch was replaced in November 2022 at a cost of over £2,800

There is a new MOT with no advisories, dated 27/02/2023.

The Interior

Reupholstered in cream leather with red piping

Refinished woodwork

Moto-Lita steering wheel

Period correct Radiomobile radio upgraded to include FM stereo

Working original clock - reportedly a rarity in MkII Jaguars

Upgraded with XJ6 reclining front seats fitted

Part of the MkII’s brilliance was the way it combined performance with luxury, and it managed this at a very competitive price as well.

This car has been retrimmed, and having covered relatively few miles since, remains in very fine condition on the inside. The walnut dashboard shines and looks to be in really fine order. All the switchgear presents well and apparently works, as do the instruments. The vendor points out that even the rev counter-mounted clock functions, which is reportedly a rarity in MkII Jaguars.

A wood-rimmed Moto-Lita steering wheel lends the driving experience a sporting feel and there’s little in the way of wear to report to it, or indeed the other controls.

The seats are reupholstered in cream leather with red piping to complement the exterior colour. There’s not much wear to report, besides some light creasing and general signs of use. The eagle-eyed amongst you will have noticed the XJ6 front seats which recline and have headrests. We notice a couple of small nicks to the leather covered centre console and around the radio, but these are not especially noticeable.

All the red carpeting presents well without excessive wear. There is ample boot space and an original Jaguar tool kit is present along with a full-size spare wheel.

The Exterior 

Carmen Red paintwork

Wider than standard chromed wire wheels with Pirelli tyres

Very smart bodywork and underside

Coombs-style rear arches

Resplendent in Carmen Red, this Jaguar is a very striking machine and we enjoy the period wire wheels with ‘knock-off’ spinners.

The vendor informs us that there are very few marks to the paint and we observe it is really smart and hxs a lustrous shine. There are a couple of areas where some slight bubbling is occurring, namely around the lower rear valance on the nearside and also in a few spots along the sills, although this does not appear to have broken the paint.

The bodywork looks really straight and underneath, the signs are very good. The vendor informs us that there is no corrosion anywhere to be seen, and there’s certainly been nothing identified during MOT testing.

The aforementioned chromed wire wheels are apparently wider than standard and look to be in very good order and the same can be said for the remaining brightwork, of which there is a fair quantity. All the glass too appears in good order along with the light lenses.

Overall, this is a smart example that can be used and enjoyed as Jaguar intended.

The Mechanics 

3.8-litre XK straight-six

Four-speed manual gearbox with overdrive (later version with synchromesh on all gears)

KCE power steering fitted

Harvey-Bailey handling kit

Stainless steel exhaust system

Coopercraft brakes

Upgraded shock absorbers

Electric fan

Aldon Automotive ‘Ignitor’ ignition 

An alternator replaces the original dynamo 

There is excellent oil pressure

The vendor informs us that this Jaguar drives impeccably and we’re not at all surprised given its enviable specification and raft of sympathetic upgrades. 

That straight-six emits an intoxicating snarl via a stainless steel exhaust system and this Jaguar is able to make rapid progress with a fully synchronised four-speed manual gearbox and overdrive.

With a history of great care and attention when it comes to the mechanicals, this Jaguar is a fine driver’s car. Already impressive handling and braking are further enhanced by KCE power steering fitted, a Harvey-Bailey handling kit and Coopercraft brakes.

If you’re after a MkII you can drive quickly, this is the one for you.

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?
