DESCRIPTION

Jaguar introduced the world to the sports saloon segment in 1955 w/the immediately successful Mk1. The Mk2 was launched in 1959 and approx. 85,000 were produced until it evolved into the 240 and 340 models for 1967.

This 1962 3.8L model in its original Pearl Gray with black leather has been faithfully maintained and used sparingly by what are believed to be only 3 previous owners. Copious and well-detailed maintenance records go back to 1987 and the 84k miles appears to be original. There is no record of a repaint and the the body and brightwork is in outstanding condition with no indication of rust or crash damage. The Webasto folding sunroof was reportedly installed at the factory and features a proper aluminum frame. All the interior wood has been refinished and restored and the leather has the perfect patina. A 14" Moto-Lita wheel has been fitted and a rare, original Henlys center armrest/console was sourced, re-dyed & installed. Wilton wool carpeting was sourced and installed in May of '21 and is protected w/classic Coco floor mats. All gauges function accurately and feature LED lighting. The clock has been upgraded to electric & keeps perfect time.

The 3.8L XK engine in the Mk2s shared the E-type's block, crank connecting rods & pistons, but had one less carburetor and 30 less horsepower. This example has been uprated with the E-type's triple SUs and a 4-speed OD gearbox from a 420G. The engine fires immediately and idles with characteristic smoothness. The gearbox shifts as it should and the OD unit lowers the revs at higher speeds allowing the Mk2 to function well in modern traffic.

Nearly $19k in maintenance & restoration was performed by the previous owner in May of '21 before our acquisition in Feb. of '22. Since then, we had a bespoke air conditioning system designed and installed by Classic Performance Restorations in Gilbert, AZ. The new A/C system blows ice cold and incorporates a Ron Davis aluminum radiator & SPAL electric fan to keep everything, and everyone, cool & comfortable in 100 degree heat. An alternator replaces the original generator and the electrics have been converted to negative ground. 5.5" MWS competition wire wheels have replaced the original 5" wide chrome units and ride on new, staggered Vredestein Sprint Classic rubber. Koni shocks and a Harvey Bailey handling kit round out the suspension upgrades.

This is possibly one of the best Mk2s extant with great owner and service history, tastefully upgraded for modern-day use. Included in the sale is an owner's handbook, original carbs & manifold, original steering wheel, original rear wheel spats, original tool & jack kit, spare wheel & JDHT certificate.
