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 technology improvements. 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.

1965 Jaguar MK2 3.8 Manual
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.

Two Mk2 Jaguars In Need Of Restoration
This shows in detail the inside and outside of two Mk2 Jaguars which are in need of restoration and are in a secret location in Guernsey, Channel Islands.These two Mk2 Jaguars have been in the same place, on some wasteland, right by the sea for at least a year as I filmed most of this a year ago and needed to redo some stuff on the 8th April 2011 and they were still there. A couple things had been damaged on the Mk2 Jaguars since last year but they were in much the same condition despite being a few feet from corrosive sea water. Someone obviously paid to have these Jaguars imported into Guernsey, as one still has a UK number plate 526 XUB and had left them with some doors unlocked, just to rot away and at risk being vandalised.
