Car was at auction 7/16
Sold On 7/12/16 For $20,500
Location: Longmont, Colorado
78,900 Original Miles
Owned for 39 Years
Original 3.8L Engine
Rebuilt Borg Warner Automatic Transmission
This 1965 Jaguar Mark 2 has 79k miles and is being sold by its owner of 39 years. This example is said to have no rust issues and was repainted 20 years ago in a non-original grey metallic that still shows a nice shine. The original 3.8L inline-six is said to idle and run well, and the Borg Warner automatic transmission was professionally rebuilt 12 years ago. Chrome and interior wood remain in good shape, while the front seat leather and carpeting show their age. The seller bought this MK2 from the original owner, and has maintained it himself. The car is sold with a clean Colorado title.
Originally delivered in gold, the repaint was in a 1970s Lincoln metallic grey color with clear coat. The seller was a fighter pilot in Germany in the early 1960s, and desired a Jaguar after watching them regularly blow by his Beetle on the Autobahn.
Small bubbles are visible in the finish near the parking lights, and have been present for 18 years without changing.
The seller notes that the car was repainted because it was hit on the rear fender and skirt. The wheel and axle were damaged by the impact and were replaced. The body panels show no major blemishes, though a small dent is visible between the trunk line and bumper.
All chrome and trim present well for their age, and one ding on a rear overrider.
The interior is mostly original and looks to be in nice driver-quality condition. The seller notes the front seats were redone about 30 years ago and are showing wear, while the rear was recovered about a year and a half ago. All burl wood finishes present well including on the dash, doors, and fold-down rear table surfaces. The original headliner is said to be in good condition.
Door panels show some waviness in the covering, and there is a crack in the plastic switch panel above the center console. The seller notes that the carpet is old and could stand to be replaced.
The 3.8L DOHC inline-six is original and is said to start easily and show good oil pressure. The Borg Warner DG automatic transmission is a rebuilt unit that the seller purchased 12 years ago from a specialist shop in Birmingham, UK. It was run and tuned on a stand under load prior to being shipped to Denver for installation. The seller has maintained the car personally for 39 years, and thus does not have many service records.
This saloon features power steering, a limited slip differential, and 4-wheel disc brakes with plenty of pad remaining. The car has been stored in a garage or hanger when not in use, and the underbody shows no significant rust issues.
The chrome wire wheels are wrapped in 25-year-old tires that should be replaced.
The car comes with a J.H. Haynes manual, an Intereurope Workshop Manual for the Mark 2, and its original tools. It has recently received a lube service and oil and filter change.
