Back in the days of The Sweeney, Jaguar's MK2 was the choice of blaggards and felons in trying to out run Scotland Yard's Ford Granadas. But does the Jaguar MK2 meet the requirements of Sir William Lyons in providing Grace, Pace and Space? We took Great Escape Classic Car Hire's tidy example out and think it probably couldn't define it any better.
Jaguar Mk 2 4.0 - JD Classics
JD Classics are the worldwide Jaguar Heritage Racing partner for Jaguar
Cars Ltd. We effectively look after and maintain the most valuable road and
race Jaguars for the manufacturer and through hundreds of race preparations
and restorations of Mk. II Jaguars - we have an unrivalled experience of
upgrading this particular Jaguar model.
This special Jaguar Mk11 that JD Classics has for sale has benefited from
approximately 3000 hours' work - and represents the pinnacle of the classic
Mk11 Jaguar style with the benefit of 50 years' worth of development and
We started off with a 1962 Jaguar Mk. II and treated the car to a full JD
Classics restoration to JD Sport specification 5 years ago - since then the
car has been subject to an annual no-expense spared maintenance programme
and is in exceptional condition.
The specification includes:
Fully restored, rustproofed and strengthened body shell - fitted with
Coombs rear wheel arches and finished in Opalescent Dark Blue.
The interior has been trimmed with grey hide throughout with matching
carpets, JD Sport electric adjustable and heated seats, steel electric
sunroof, power windows, tinted glass, heated rear screen, inertia reel
front and rear seat belts, custom made rear baby seats in matching grey
leather with ISO fix fittings. Modern refinements include our latest zoned
digital air conditioning and electric adjustable power steering has been
fitted in last the few months.
The fully rebuilt, balanced and hand assembled 4.0 AJ6 fuel injected engine
- provides very strong power and torque - with figures well in excess of
the most highly tuned 3.8 engines from 50 years ago. This particular car
with its advanced engine management and upgraded cooling system - drives
exactly like a modern GT car - fuss free in traffic - without overheating -
not something which can always be said of an original Mk. II Jaguar!
When it comes to driving - the modern 5 speed gearbox fitted to this car is
a massive advance over its period Moss fitment - not just in ease of use
and shift quality - but also with the additional 5th gear - relaxed high
speed cruising now becomes the cars forte. In addition - whilst we'll
concede economy is hardy the rationale behind this car - the fuel injected
modern engine together with the improved gearbox provides a welcome and
practical benefit in fuel economy - and provides the car with a usefully
longer range than it's period counterpart.
These significant performance upgrades are tamed by AP 4 pot racing brakes
with ABS - together with the security and stability of our JD Sport
suspension and the car runs on strengthened competition specification
chromed wire wheels with period sympathetic modern performance tyres.
If you are looking to make an emotional and financial investment in the
very best Jaguar Mk. II available anywhere - this car presents a marriage
of classic Jaguar style with a thoroughly enjoyable and exhilarating modern
21st century driving experience - amply capable of coping with today's more
arduous traffic conditions.

The Jaguar Mark 2 is a medium-sized saloon car built from late 1959 to
1967 by the Jaguar company in Coventry, England. For the last 12 months
before announcement of the XJ6 they were re-labelled Jaguar 240 and Jaguar
340. The previous Jaguar 2.4 and 3.4 models made between 1955 and 1959 have
been identified as Mark 1 Jaguars since Jaguar produced this Mark 2 model.[
