*Please note this vehicle is titled 1963.
Produced from late 1959 through 1967, the luxurious Mk II served as Jaguar’s mid-size flagship and with 3.8-litre power underhood, it was one of the world’s fastest sports saloons. Immediately dominant in British saloon-car racing, the Mk II took the first-ever European Touring Car Championship in 1963 and won its class at the Tour de France from 1960 through 1963.
An original left-hand-drive export model, this Mk II 3.8 was completed in December 1961 and subsequently titled as a 1963 model prior to purchase by the first owner in Washington, who retained the car in sound and well-maintained condition until 2009. Finished in Opalescent Dark Green with beige trim, the colors it retains today, the Mk II was factory-equipped with an automatic gearbox, overdrive, and power steering. As offered, it benefits from restoration work by marque experts Classic Showcase, including a new two-stage finish, new leather upholstery, custom-made interior panels and carpeting, a new headliner, and restored woodwork. Mechanical systems were examined with the various components restored or replaced as deemed necessary. Other highlights include original glass, instruments, hubcaps, Lucas “PL” headlamps, Michelin radial tires, Blaupunkt radio, and overdrive, plus a recently upgraded aluminum radiator and stainless steel exhaust. Accompanied by a digital file documenting the restoration and a Jaguar Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate, this Mk II is a striking example of Jaguar’s definitive sporting saloon in top 3.8-litre specification.
