The Jaguar S-type 3.8 litre appeared alongside the 3.4 version at the cars launch in 1963. The new S-type owed much to its MKII stable-mates as well as the much larger MKX of the same period. The S-type was aimed at Jaguar drivers looking for slightly more sophistication than was offered by the MKII and the cars independent rear suspension and different styling cues highlighted the luxury side of the cars character and played down the sporty image of the MKII. The 3.8 version of the S-type provided sparkling performance and could reach a maximum of 125mph. The S-type used a modified Mk II bodyshell, which had unique front and rear styling and included a sumptuous interior.  Production of the S-type ceased in 1968 when its replacement, the 420, arrived.

1966 Jaguar 3.8 S-Type Auto in Old English White with Red leather interior showing only 31,000 miles, which appears to be verified by the substantial amount of paperwork that comes with the car, but sadly it cannot be warranted. The vendor describes the car as having good, sound bodywork and shut lines, with a good interior and a mirror like finish on the woodwork. The car is supplied with a heritage certificate and the original tool kit. A rare opportunity to buy a classic 3.8 ltr Jaguar in good original condition at an affordable price.
