The Jaguar S-Type appeared 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 ceased in 1968 when its replacement, the 420, arrived.
The 1967 Jaguar 3.4 S-Type offered here has been extensively restored to a very high standard by an independent specialist. The car has not seen any use since completion except for testing and delivery. The car is said to drive very well, as you would expect with the all synchromesh overdrive gearbox working well. The car comes with the original books, the first insurance certificate, an RAC inspection report from 1972, and the heritage certificate which shows the car was built in 1966, registered in 1967 and is still in the original colour. These early S-Types are now becoming very sought after and are hard to find in this condition.
