Singularity of the car

  • Complete restoration in 1993
  • History available
  • Good condition

Our Jaguar Mark 2 was launched on April 8, 1965. Its country of origin is unknown. It has had 4 owners, including 3 French. The current French owner acquired it on November 2, 2018.  

The car is in excellent overall condition, thanks in particular to a complete rebuild carried out by specialist Vicarage in 1993 at a cost of over €120,000. The red leather interior perfectly matches the Midnight Blue exterior. Chrome, wheels, aluminum trim and dashboard are in excellent condition.  

Mechanical performance is beyond reproach. The 3.8L XK engine developing 220 hp, combined with the Moss 5-speed manual gearbox, always delivers excellent sensations. It will be serviced by specialist garage JPG Consulting in 2019 and by a specialist in 2021. We have numerous invoices and the car's history. An overhaul will be carried out for the sale.  

In addition to the basic equipment, a number of other items have been added and modified:

  • Sunroof (malfunction)
  • Car radio
  • Stainless steel exhaust line
  • Power steering
  • Electronic ignition
  • Leather interior
  • Floor carpeting
  • Alarm
  • 5-speed gearbox
  • Central locking
  • Air conditioning
  • Electric windows

Historical summary of the model

During 1952, Jaguar completed its move from Swallow Road to Browns Lane in Coventry. It was at this point that the Utah project made its appearance. This project concerned the production of a new model, a sedan with unitary construction and an engine of around 2.5 liters. The choice of a unitary construction, rather than a separate chassis and body, was justified by an economic advantage and the possibility of reducing the final weight. The dimensions of the Utah project were revealed: a wheelbase of 107.4 inches, a length of 181 inches, a width of 67 inches and a height of 57.5 inches. Similar in size to the MKVII sedan, the Utah project is considerably lighter, saving 1200 lb.  

As for the engine, Jaguar had to give its project an engine powerful enough to reach 100 mph. To achieve this, the Coventry-based company tested a 2.0 L XK engine, which was too weak, as well as a 3.4 L engine in August 1952. However, another engine came into its own. The 2.4 L XK uses a shorter block than the 3.4 L, and Solex carburetors to develop 112 bhp at 5,750 rpm. The project was finally unveiled at the Earls Court Motor Show on October 19, 1955, under the official Jaguar 2.4-liter name. It was produced in 2 versions, Standard and Special Equipment. Testing by the motoring magazines of the day revealed a top speed of around 102 mph, and a 0-60 mph time of just 15 seconds. Despite good performance, the 2.4 L engine proved too small for the American market, resulting in a necessary change of displacement. The larger 3.4 L engine required, among other things, new radiators, wider front fenders and reinforced suspension to support the weight.  

Its 1957 Motor Magazine test revealed a top speed of 120 mph, well above that of the 2.4L version. From 1957 to 1959, Sir Williams Lyon's design and the mechanical elements underwent a number of modifications. The days of the Jaguar 2.4L and 3.4L were numbered, however, with the forthcoming development of a MK2 version. Sir William Lyons redesigned the car's styling, particularly the rear window pillars. This and other styling touches, such as a new grille, transformed the car's appearance at minimal cost to Jaguar. The interior was revised with new seats, a walnut dashboard and a more modern black steering wheel. The main mechanical modification was the fitting of a wider-track rear axle to improve handling at high speeds. The engine chosen was the 3.8L XK, which had previously appeared in the XK150 in 1958. It developed no less than 220 bhp at 5,500 rpm. The Jaguar MK2 was announced on October 2, 1959. This name implied the existence of an MK1 version, so the Jaguar 2.4L was renamed after the fact. The Mark 2 was produced from 1959 to 1967, with almost 84,000 units sold, including around 30,000 of the 3.8L version.
