1966 Jaguar MkII 3.8
CKL are pleased to offer this remarkable Jaguar MKII 3.8, a real icon for motoring history. The Jaguar MKII made its first appearance in 1959 and was quickly voted car of the year. The MKII came with 3 engine options: 2.4, 3.4 or 3.8, with the 3.8 being the fastest production saloon car of the time.
Due to its high speed and acceleration capabilities, the MKII became highly popular with the Police Force, which at the time was subject to the all-new motorway. It wasn’t long before the MKII would find itself on the track and would capture the attention of period racers such as Graham Hill and Jack Sears.
This MKII features the correct black exterior paintwork and a red leather interior with wood dash paneling. In 1988, restoration began to bring the MKII back to the standard on offer today. During the restoration, the 3.8 engine and gearbox (with overdrive unit) have been completely refreshed. The decision was also made to add power steering, chrome wire-wheels, new tyres, a new fuel tank and various body detailing.
The car has clearly been looked after over the years, which preserves its high usability on today’s roads. Reliability has always been a key point for the MKII and still achieves this title exceedingly well. This fine example combines speed with style exceptionally well, and should be highly considered by all classic car enthusiasts.
