![CDATA[
The lineage of the Mk. II can be directly traced back to its predecessor, the 2.4 saloon or Mk. I as it would come to be known in later years. This sporting saloon, designed to fill the gap in Jaguar's range between the XK sports and the voluminous Mk. VII, entered the market in 1956. Power came from the legendary XK straight six, twin cam engine in 2483cc form. The 2.4 was notable as being a complete breakaway from the previous designs of (Sir) William Lyons and Co. and was their first foray into the modern world of monocoque construction. Traditional Jaguar buyers would not feel alienated by the new offering from Coventry however, as the interior was still up to their usual standards with ample legroom and walnut being the order of the day.
First registered on 2nd August 1968, this Jaguar presents in very good useable condition. The 2,483cc XK engine is a reliable and robust power plant and when mated to a manual gearbox with overdrive, as is the case with this example, can be a joy to drive. Finished in its original colour combination of Fern Green with Black Ambler interior, the burr walnut wood has been refurbished. Supplied with a V5C registration document, this Jaguar is both MoT and Road Fund Licence exempt. These super stylish cars create interest wherever they appear and with the larger engine examples regularly commanding prices of ú30,000 and above, this 240 appears to offer excellent value.]]
