Car to be at auction 4/21

www.carandclassic.co.uk/auctions/1967-jaguar-340-EnV12g_campaign=Targeted%20%7C%20Jaguar%20MK2%20-%20Blue%20%26%20Grey%20%7 ...

Auction description:

Guide Price: £19,000 - £24,000

﹒Outstanding condition throughout

﹒Detailed history file

﹒Recent, high quality respray

﹒Low mileage and original mechanicals

In total, a mere 2,788 340 models were built before the parts ran out. As such, it stands today as an exceptionally rare machine. This car was with its first owner all the way until 2003, when it was sold to another enthusiast who once again opted to pass it on in 2017. The third and current owner hasn’t taken his responsibility lightly. And as such, has ensured this survival of this rare machine by lavishing more care upon it.

The car was in excellent overall condition, but did need some slight attention. As such, the current owner has had the car repainted, he’s addressed any niggles or issues, he has kept the car in first class mechanical condition and as such, has preserved the car further. It has wanted for nothing, it has been cared for without so much as a waiver of enthusiasm and as such, could well be the best 340 in existence.

The Interior

As you can see from the pictures, the interior of this Jaguar 340 is in excellent order. The current owner has fitted new carpets throughout, which serve to make the cabin feel fresh and barely used. The seats are in wonderful condition, and show no signs of wear or damage. Interestingly, to keep costs down, Jaguar didn’t fit leather and instead used a material known as Ambla, which has the look and feel of leather.

The door cards are all excellent, as is the associated furniture. The wood cappings are all good, too. As is the dash and the dash top, which have been removed and re-lacquered by the current owner, and as such now boast a deep shine. The dials and gauges are all functional and clear and there is even a period-correct and functional radio in place.

The details are all spot on, too. The headlining is excellent, the door shuts are gleaming and free of dirt or any signs of corrosion. It’s truly a testament to the manner in which this car has been cared for.

Finally, the boot is much of the same story. Clean, dry, carpets are in good condition, the paintwork is all gleaming and free from damage. It’s all in very good order. There is a spare wheel, tools, everything you would expect.

The Exterior

Just look at it for yourself. The coachwork of this handsome old Jaguar is excellent. When the current owner bought it, the paint was good, but had literally been polished through to the primer in some spots. As such, he elected to have the car repainted in the original navy hue. The quality of the job is staggering. The paint is rich, deep and glossy and is free from swirls and scratches.

The work was carried out over four years ago though, so it's not ‘showroom’ but it’s pretty close. There is one slight imperfection in the form of a small bubble on the passenger side rear door’s lower section. About the size of a 20p coin, and barely noticeable.

The chrome is all excellent, there is some very fine pitting as you would expect for a car of this age, but nothing serious and nothing that needs to be rectified. It’s more a case of it having a bit of age and charm than anything else. The bumpers are in fact stainless steel, so there is zero corrosion there. The chromed wire wheels are all in brilliant order, and look nearly new, as do the tyres.

Just grab yourself a brew and have a long, slow scroll through the pictures of this 340. Let your eyes drink it in (the car, not your brew) and you will fall in love with it a little bit. Okay, a lot.

The Mechanics

While the body has been repainted, the rest of the car is very much of the ‘survivor’ sort. This car has never been dismantled, it’s never been restored, it’s never been significantly messed with. It’s every bit the car it was when it left the factory - in a good way. It’s been maintained flawlessly, and it has had some works such as a gearbox refurbishment. But it’s wear and tear stuff, nothing sinister. Looking at the underside of the car, it makes for a pleasing visual of originality paired with considered and regular upkeep. No bodges, nothing removed and poorly refitted. It’s all rock solid.

The engine, which has covered a hair over 60k, starts on the button and is in very good health indeed. It starts on the button and revs freely without a rattle, clunk or squeak. On the road, it pulls with an eagerness that would make some modern cars blush. The automatic transmission, having been rebuilt, is smooth and direct and shifts through the gears without question or drama.

The car is an utter joy to roll along in. It’s quiet, and smooth but also powerful when you require it. It has been so, so well looked after. It still feels tight, it still feels… new. There’s no wallowing, nothing sags, nothing is recalcitrant, nothing bangs or rattles. The brakes are good, the steering is - having again been serviced - direct and laden with feedback. It’s a joy to drive. It’s glorious, truly.

The Appeal

Three owners, low miles, exceptional condition and rare to boot. Why would you not want this Jaguar? It is as beautiful today as it was back in 1967, and thanks to those three very considerate and caring owners, it still feels like it did in 1967 when you take to the road. It’s a wonderful, charming machine dripping with old school cool and charm. It has presence, it turns heads, but that doesn’t matter. What matters is how it will make you feel when you’re there, sitting behind that big steering wheel, arm out of the window, sun shining. This car will be a reminder of not only how good classic cars can be, but also of how very right you were to bid on it.

Car returns to auction 11/23

www.barons-auctions.com/content/auctions.php&cid=5229

Auction description:

November Classic Auction: Saturday 25th November 2023

Lot 108: 1967 Jaguar 340 MK2 (REDUCED RESERVE)

Guide price: £9,000 to £11,000

Registraton: OYV867F

Mileage: 63500

Chassis No: P1J50102BW

MOT:

Colour: Blue

Jaguar MK2 340 Automatic 1968. This car was purchased by the vendor 2 years ago in first class condition for £25,000 but due to unfortunate circumstances was left outside and not used. The history shows one owner until 2003, second lady owner and then her husband was the third owner until 2021 when purchased by the vendor. The car has suffered with bird mess on the paint and this has affected the paint as shown in the pictures. the interior woodwork has also suffered with the damp air which has crazed the varnish. The car runs and drives well with the auto gearbox smooth and precise. Other than this the car presents very well and it appears very sound with only 2 small areas of rust apparent, again shown in the pictures. Overall, this is still a very good useable example that runs and drives well with some service history which includes the buff log book, some old MOTs, invoices, old tax discs and storage invoices. The mileage of 63,500 is shown by the history to be correct. This is a low mileage car with good history, low owners that runs well and until recently was well maintained. Now in need of a little TLC to bring it back to a high standard.
