Desirable 3.8 liter Mark II beautifully restored to concours standards by marque specialists. Two-time JCNA 100-point winner. Stunning presentation, now gently matured and ready to enjoy.
Our featured Jaguar Mk II saloon stands among the finest restored examples we have had the pleasure to offer. This 1962 3.8-liter automatic saloon was treated to a Concours-quality restoration in 2004 and has since been maintained in top cosmetic and mechanical condition. It is a multiple 100-point award winner in JCNA Concours competition, and it comes to us with well-documented ownership and restoration history. According to the included Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate, this particular car was originally finished in Carmen red over a black interior and is a genuine left-drive model equipped with the 3.8-liter engine and Borg-Warner automatic gearbox. It first belonged to Walter Leonard of Lee, Massachusetts. Mr. Leonard may have been a serviceman, as he collected the car from Jaguar’s German distributor, Peter Linder of Frankfurt am Main.
Two additional owners are known, including W.R. Judd who owned the car from the mid-1970s until 2002. Mac and Linda Holt acquired it shortly thereafter and commissioned a comprehensive, nut and bolt restoration. The Holts changed the color from the bright Carmen Red to a more understated and elegant shade of Regency red, a factory-offered color which suits the character of the Mk II quite well. While some time has passed since the restoration, it remains in exceptional condition, with the finishes matured lightly with time and care. The body fit is outstanding, with precisely aligned doors and deck lids that shut with the solidity of a contemporary Mercedes-Benz. The lovely Regency Red paint is excellent, highlighted by superb chrome and brightwork that shows only slight polish marks in the finish. Chrome knock-off wire wheels with 6.40-15 Firestone wide-whites complete the striking presentation.
