If you are seeking a Jaguar MK2 3.8 litre, this car really does tick all of the boxes. In 2009/2010 the engine was fully rebuilt by Quest Engineering which included new high compression pistons, a lightened flywheel, new oil and water pumps, bearings, chains valve guides and a high torque starter motor. At around the same time the gearbox which is a later manual with overdrive unit rather than the Moss box was rebuilt by Hardy Engineering. The car was treated to a full re-spray to a high standard in 2013 in its original colour of Solent Blue. Fast forward to 2016 and to really finish this car off, it has been retrimmed completely including all wood , roof lining, seats, carpets, door panels etc, at a cost of £12,000. The interior is probably better than when new! The chrome is all as new as well and the wire wheels are still in superb condition.

The upgrades made to the engine during the rebuild have given the car plenty of performance making it a car that is ideal for long distance touring, especially with the added benefit of power steering. A further recent upgrade has been the fitment of Coopercraft brakes making this car really stop well. A Thatcham alarm system has also recently been fitted.

The current owner has taken great car of this car and it has been treated to a full service during each year of his ownership with the last being carried out in Sep 2017 by Classic Restorations.

The car comes with a full history file of recent invoices along with a Jaguar MK2 3.8 litre maintenance and service book.

The colour comibination is probably one of the best for a MK2 and with such a lovely interior, this car is hard to resist! The photographs really say it all.
