Jaguar MK 2 Additional Information
1965 JAGUAR MKII 3.4
A well-preserved example of the classic sports saloon, in a desirable specification, and benefiting from a very recent service.
It is powered by the 3.4-litre Jaguar XK6 straight-six engine, coupled to a four-speed manual gearbox with original overdrive.
The car has benefited from regular maintenance since 2005, though has only covered around 700 miles over the last five years.
This MkII is now finished in period-correct Indigo Blue with dark blue leather upholstery. While the body colour is believed to have been changed, the appearance of the leather seat covers suggests they are mostly original.
It features stainless steel sill plates, wire wheels and factory power steering, along with a Moto-Lita steering wheel and wood veneers in the cabin.
Its original owner’s manual, toolkit and steering wheel will be included, along with a raft of maintenance invoices.
There is no known bodywork damage. Its Indigo Blue paintwork is in good condition, though the vendor has reported a number of minor blemishes. There are some small paint blisters at the bottom of the doors, along with some peeling on the nearside front sidelight housing, a blemish on the offside front wing, and a scuff to the offside rear.
Some similar small blisters can be seen on the offside of the front bumper support, and a small chip is visible in the chrome bumper trim.
Inside, the leather has a time-earned ‘patina’ from age. There is a split in the driver’s backrest, and various creasing and surface cracks throughout, but it is eminently usable as-is. The rear seat cushion appears to have been partially repaired.
The interior wood trim pieces have been replaced with newly veneered items from Classical Dash Ltd.
The analogue clock, the glovebox lamp and one of the cabin lights are currently inoperative, but there are no other known faults.
The most recent MOT test was on 23 July 2021 at 81,543 miles, which was a clean pass
