1962 Jaguar MK2 3.8 Manual Overdrive
We are proud to offer this beautiful 1962 Mk2 Jaguar, Presented in stunning Opalescent Silver Blue with Dove Grey leather interior. An original UK car which has recently been repatriated from New Zealand, where it spent the majority of it’s life. The car drives superbly, holding good oil pressure & with everything working as it should. The gearbox & clutch feel good & the brakes pull the car up straight. This car started life with the 3.4L engine but has since been upgraded to a 3.8L unit which is currently in the car. Underneath the car is absolutely rock solid & must be one of the best Mk2’s we have seen, with none of the usual rust issues so commonly encountered. The paintwork, although not concours looks fantastic but does however have some minor stone chips and imperfections, overall it polishes up to a deep shine. Inside the interior is all original and is in very good condition, with just the right amount of patina to the Dove Grey hide, conducive to the age of the car. Service records go back to 1986 and although the car changed hands several times before then, shows single ownership for a 31 year period to a Mr Stephen Thom in Christchurch NZ until the car was then sold in 2015. Imported back to the UK in May 2016 where the car has since been well serviced & has recieved a new clutch & general maintenance as expected. Supplied with a full MOT although now MOT & Tax exempt, with V5 present and some past service history.
