Item description

This Jaguar Mark II Sedan has a powerful 3.4 litre engine. A truly superb car that really stands out in a crowd. Sadly I must part with it as I am no longer able to garage it properly due to the arrival of another classic. She has been all but fully restored mechanically. The engine was completely rebuilt in early 2016 and has covered barely 1500km since. The engine also has a new cylinder head, oil pump, water pump and radiator. I have installed a Pertronix electronic ignition module and also done a great deal of under bonnet rewiring although most of the original wiring loom is still present. New clutch plate also. The distributor has also just been overhauled and I have also replaced the windscreen wiper motor in the last 2 years. It also has a brand new windscreen. It has just had major steering and suspension restoration work done including new shock absorbers all round. Full receipts including itemised breakdown of all work done will be supplied with the car. The interior leather is in remarkably good condition. The only seat that ever gets any real use is the drivers seat which has some light creasing but still presents very well. The carpet appears to have been replaced at some stage prior to my buying the car six years ago and is still in excellent condition. I have also replaced all the door trims with correct cards supplied from the UK. The steering wheel is a 4 spoke Moto-Lita. Timberwork is generally excellent except for a couple of small bubbles starting to appear on the dash capping and some small bubbling on the drivers door trim piece underneath the quarter light. All other woodwork is perfect. The paintwork is very good everywhere with just a couple of stone chips at the front ( It is a car to be driven, not just looked at) and just a few small marks here and there. I am sure the paint is not original as it's too good to be 50 years old but I don't know how long ago it was resprayed. It is the original colour however and presents beautifully. The chrome work on the bumpers is still fairly presentable but a new owner may want to look at getting it redone at some stage. The only exception is the inside of the engine bay which is still in "original condition" ie: it needs to be done. It has a very good quality Sony radio/cassette which would seem to have been fitted in the late 1990's or early noughties. All speakers work perfectly as does the aerial. She holds absolutely perfect oil pressure and temperature all day and the overdrive solenoid works perfectly also. The only issues with the instrumentation is the speedo needle wanders a bit but is still (relatively) accurate and the cable for the Rev Counter needs replacing. A couple of chores I haven't managed to get around to but they ain't biggies. This is a well known car around Launceston and never fails to get admiring looks She has no oil leaks (unusual for an old Jag) and has been maintained by Goldstar Motors, well known local specialists in English cars. They could be contacted for a thoroughly honest appraisal of the car. This is really beautiful Mk2 and I've tried to be as honest here as possible in describing the condition of car. Like all 50 year old motor cars there are still a few jobs left to do but all the heavy lifting has been done and done well. The few things that remain are not difficult or expensive and are quite discretionary in terms of when a new owner may wish to attend to them. It's perfect to enjoy just as it is. In the meantime, it is a beautiful driving car and would easily take you from Perth to Brisbane without missing a beat if you felt so inclined. Vehicle registration paid until September 2019.
