Known History

Introduced in 1955 and retroactively known as the Mark I, the Jaguar 2.4 saloon was a major disruption to the brand's tradition of building huge saloon cars which was beforehand offered by the manufacturer based in Coventry. Indeed, thanks to the adoption of a monocoque bodywork which was a first for Jaguar, this modern saloon provided a compact, low and sleek design, while the engine was none other than the XK block with short stroke. It was in 1959 that this model faded out in order to make way for the much more popular Mark II.

Fitted with a manual gearbox, this particular example was purchased by the current owner's father while it was already in Greece. Its elegant bodywork was repainted in an attractive blue livery and the beige leather interior (with matching carpets) has also been restored. Inside, the luxurious wooden dashboard is complete and compliant to its original specification. Seat belts have been fitted at the front. Known as a significant milestone in the brand's history, this Mark I will undoubtedly seduce enthusiasts thanks to its natural distinction and the elegance of its colour combination.
