An outstanding and highly desirable example of Jaguar’s seminal sports saloon, equipped from new with the 3.8-liter engine and manual gearbox with overdrive. Beautifully restored and thoroughly updated for performance and comfort.
This lovely 1960 MkII is beautifully restored and equipped from the factory in the most desirable specification of a 3.8-liter engine with the 4-speed manual gearbox and Laycock overdrive. The high-quality restoration was performed over seven years by marque specialists in the UK, before returning to the USA in 2015 with its most recent owner. It features numerous upgrades and has been extremely well-maintained in top running condition. Finished in British Racing Green, the body is crisp and well detailed, with excellent paint and consistent gaps and panel alignment. It also features Coombs-style wheel spats, developed by racers to allow for a meatier rear tire to fit under the arches, giving this car a squat, purposeful stance on its beautiful chrome knock-off wire wheels and grippy 205-section radial tires. The brightwork is a blend of restored and well-preserved original items. Some of the minor trim parts, such as the door handles, and Jaguar “leaper” mascot show some slight pitting in the surface, while the bumpers, window frames, and moldings are excellent. The car has been dialed-in for performance driving in all conditions and features powerful H4 flat-lens headlamps and Cibie Iode 40 fog lamps.
