The Mk 2 Jaguar was introduced in 1959. It came with a 2.4, 3.4 or 3.8 litre XK engine. Compared to the Mark 1, the appearance of the car was transformed by an increase of 18% in cabin glass area. The car was re-engineered above the waistline, slender front pillars allowed a wider windscreen and the rear window almost wrapped around to the enlarged side windows. The radiator grille was amended and larger side, tail and fog lamps repositioned. Inside a new heating system was fitted with ducted air to the rear compartment. There was an improved instrument layout that became standard for all Jaguar cars until the XJ Series II. From its introduction the Jaguar MkII developed a strong following in many walks of life. With wonderful styling and a race-bred engine and four-wheel disc brakes, the ability to carry five passengers at great speed, the car proved to be a great success.
A 1966 LHD Jaguar 3.8 Mk II finished in black, with a contrasting biscuit trim. The car was imported into this country in 1976 from, it is thought, Spain. The car has been in the same family for about 20 years, but now needs to find a new owner as the vendor does not use it any more. There are lots of invoices dating back to 2015, and an instruction manual for the power steering. The car is said to be in very good condition, and to drive very well. A very good car at a very reasonable reserve.
