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.

The Jaguar you see here is from the dry state of Texas and an exceptional example of Jaguar’s Mark II sedan. This car epitomizes the Jaguar standard of “Grace, Space and Pace.” This car still looks impressive to this day!

The dashboard is finished the same wood veneer that is on the door panels and it looks spectacular. The dash shows no signs of cracking or fading. The dash houses a set of original Smith’s gauges as well as an AM/FM/Cassette stereo that look great. It should be noted that the horn is currently inoperable. The center console is finished in the same material as the seats and does show some signs of wear but still shows well. Under the hood, you will find a true XK 3.8L, 6 cylinder engine attached to an automatic transmission. Power steering combined with the tried and true XK 3.8 liter engine guide the car along at highway speeds in consummate luxury. The Jag sits upon a set of 15” chrome wire wheels wrapped in 195/65R15 tires, which look great! This Jaguar Mark II would make a beautiful addition to any European collection or as a Sunday driver.
