Car was at auction 6/18
www.brightwells.com/classic-motoring/bicester-classic-vintage/bicester-classic-v ...

Auction description:
Bicester Classic & Vintage Cars and Motorcycles

Sunday 24th June, held at Bicester Heritage
Lot number 63
Sale Price £32,500
Make & Model Jaguar Mk2 3.8
Registration LCL 537A
Year 1963
Colour British Racing Green
Engine Size 3,781 cc
Chassis No. P232530BL
Engine No. 107787-8
Documents V5C; MOT April 2019

The lovely example offered here was first registered on the 9th September 1963 and is being offered by its third owner. It has covered a mere 63,000 miles. With a history file with old MOTs from 1981 when the odometer read 55,693 and from 1991 at 58,430 miles the mileage sounds about right.

The subject of a restoration by Custom Bodyshop in West Ham in 2012 it appears to be in superb condition with excellent shut lines and paint finish. The sills were replaced and the doors properly restored, an area which is notoriously difficult to get right, and very obvious when its wrong!

According to the vendor work carried out includes new brake discs, pads, callipers and pipes. A new fuel tank and lines, a carburettor rebuild, upgraded cooling system with a re-cored radiator and electric fan. The bumpers and various other chrome parts were sent for re-chroming. A new heater matrix and hoses, plus a new steering box complete the work. At the time of our visit the Vendor did not have invoices to substantiate this work, but you can see form the condition of the car that plenty of money has been spent!

Sporting the most desirable colour combination of British Racing Green, with an immaculate parchment hide interior this has to be the Mk2 to have if you want a car that drives beautifully, with its unusually slick Moss gearbox with functioning Overdrive. At the estimate it is likely that it will prove to be great investment too!

The Christmas Sale 2023

Lot Number 212

1963 Jaguar Mk2 4.2-Litre Manual Overdrive Saloon

BODY COLOUR British Racing Green

DRIVE RHD

REG NUMBER LCL 537A

ODOMETER READING 62619 Miles

MOT Expiry Exempt

Chassis Number P232530BL

Engine Number 107787-8

Transmission Manual

Bespoke, 1963 Mk2 in Opalescent British Racing Green with sympathetic upgrades including the powerful 4.2-litre XK unit and a 4-speed manual gearbox with overdrive.

It's finished in Opalescent British Racing Green with parchment leather interior, a colour combination that only gets better with time

The comprehensive 2014 restoration addressed various aspects including bodywork, mechanical enhancements, replacement of components such as brake discs, pads, fuel tank, fuel pipes, carburettor, cooling system, and more, resulting in a visually stunning and very capable Mk2

The original 3.8-litre engine was replaced with a more powerful 4.2-litre XK unit and a 4-speed manual gearbox with overdrive, though aficionados note the near identicality of the saloon bodies despite the chassis change

Continual maintenance and improvements included gearbox and overdrive overhauls, clutch replacement, modifications for easier gearbox removal, engine and electrical upgrades by renowned specialists, showcasing a harmonious balance between performance and classic elegance

Whilst this Mk2 may not bear 'matching numbers', it more than compensates for that with its exceptional upgrades, understated looks and handsome presentation

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?
