220bhp, 3,781 cc double overhead camshaft inline six-cylinder engine with dual SU carburetors, four-speed GM automatic transmission with overdrive, independent front suspension with coil springs, rigid rear axle with cantilever springs, and four-wheel hydraulic disc brakes. Wheelbase: 107.4" Jaguar’s Mk II series of small sedans were produced between 1959 and early 1969. These handsome sedans set new standards of style, comfort, and performance, offering discerning buyers a luxurious yet sporty alternative. In 1960, the Mk II was offered with a choice of 3.4 and 3.8-liter six-cylinder engines, a standard tachometer, limited-slip differential, four-wheel disc brakes, and a four speed manual transmission with overdrive. An automatic transmission was optional. In road trim, the 220-horsepower Mk II 3.8 was capable of reaching 125 miles per hour, with zero to 60 times of just 8.5 seconds. The new cars were equally impressive in competition, most notably dominating the Tour de France between 1960 and 1963. According to the Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust certificate, the Mk II offered here was the 33rd example built. A left-hand-drive model, it was completed September 3, 1959 and passed through several owners, accumulating 44,432 miles by 1996 before a comprehensive and high-quality restoration was undertaken with the very impressive results seen here. Now finished in Old English White, the fit of the door gaps is excellent, the glass is original, and the chrome was refinished or replaced as needed. The car is fitted with Jaguar wire wheels, and shod in speed-rated Pirelli radial tires. While the original black leather upholstery and carpets were in remarkably good condition, the front seats were carefully rebuilt and the remaining original leather was cleaned and softened. With the exception of the wooden dash, which was re-glued, stripped and refinished, the balance of the wood required no restoration work. Under the hood, the 3.8-liter engine was thoroughly checked and confirmed to be in top operating condition. In 2007, a GM four-speed automatic transmission replaced the original unit, greatly improving drive ability and fuel economy. The wiring harness was also replaced, and an alternator with a built-in regulator was installed, along with a new GM-type starter. Correct fog lights, an electronic ignition system, an aluminum radiator and seat belts are the latest additions to this beautiful automobile. Several Best of Class and Best of Show awards in All British as well as Jaguar Only Shows have been won with this beautiful car. A picture with some of the awards has been included.
