A mechanically excellent 3.8 manual (with overdrive) MKII Jaguar from the last year of production, 1967. This car starts first time, runs at high oil pressure without overheating and stops well due to the upgraded brakes. The all syncro gearbox and overdrive work exactly as they should and the car is ready to drive any distance without fault. It is a great (and fast) driving car that requires repainting and some interior renovation. Brief history: Documented ownership history from new. My car for the last 11 years with only three previous owners. Green log books etc in the history file. The previous owner owned the car since 1973. A UK supplied car (Byatts of Fenton - still wears the original dealer number plates) with matching body and engine numbers backed up by a heritage certificate, which also confirms the original colours of Dark Blue with Dark Blue leather interior. RECLINING FRONT SEATS. Mechanics: Less than approx 10,000 miles since an engine and carb rebuild by Jaguar specialists VSE of Wales. All syncro (later type) gearbox rebuilt and clutch replaced. Rebuilt brakes, servo, cylinders and the addition of Coopercraft 4 piston calipers. Spin on oil filter conversion. Vicarage/Harvey Bailey rear coil springs upgrade with adjustable shock absorbers. Recent Yuasa battery. Wheels shod with Vredestein Sprint Classics. Body: The panels are all original and all welding was done by previous owner sometime between 1999 to 2001 and Coombs type rear arches were fitted at that time. It was then painted in it's original colour albeit badly. When I bought the car it was rust free and the underside was perfect. It still is very good but rust has started to appear on the exterior of the car and the lower front sill area. It requires a little welding to remove rust and a complete repaint. Interior: The interior is original. It requires the leather renovating, the wood re-veneering, carpets and the headlining replacing. Or, you can leave it as it is.
