![CDATA[
Synonymous with the swinging ‘60’s and the hit TV series, Inspector Morse, the Jaguar Mk. II saloon has been used as a vehicle to transport everyone from dignitaries and politicians to bank robbers and the criminal select. Desirable due to being a well-balanced saloon car with space for four adults and a good size boot, it also boasted engine options including the mighty Jaguar 3.8 litre power unit; small wonder it became popular as a getaway vehicle. When released, traditional Jaguar buyers had no need to feel alienated by the new offering from Coventry as the interior was up to their usual standards with leather and walnut being the order of the day. With 112bhp available, the 2.4 was not overly burdened with pace so, importantly, coupled to a manual gearbox with overdrive it would be the more frugal of the range but give the driver the ability to utilise the full range of the 2.4 engine.
Presented in the splendid colour combination of British Racing Green over a green leather interior, this lovely Mk. II has been part of a private collection for some years. Offered in generally very good order throughout, the paintwork is bright and shows very few blemishes as does the interior, the seats show a light patina and the wood dashboard is well. The history file that accompanies the car includes numerous receipts and MoT test certificates as well as the current V5 registration document and an old style buff logbook. The vendor reports that this smartly presented example runs and drives well and we believe it is offered at a very attractive estimate indeed. Interested parties should note this vehicle is listed on HPI as a category D Insurance loss dated 29th April 2001.]]
