Vehicle History

Overall condition: Project Number of owners: 3 History: Part MOT: Exempt ULEZ: Exempt The Jaguar Mark 2 is a medium-sized saloon car built from 1959 to 1967 by Jaguar in Coventry, England. It was an evolutionary development of the Jaguar Mark 1, with stylistic changes and performance enhancements, becoming a significant representation of the British automotive industry during its production years. The Mark 2 represented an era of expansion and innovation for Jaguar and was designed to compete with luxury cars while offering an enticing blend of performance and elegance. Under the hood, it was fitted with the famed XK engine, available in 2.4, 3.4 and 3.8-litres. These engines were coupled with either a four-speed manual, four-speed manual with overdrive, or three-speed automatic transmission. The Mark 2 quickly gained a reputation for combining luxury and performance. It was also a successful racing car, gaining accolades in touring car racing during the 1960s and was used by the UK police force for highway patrol duties. This Jaguar was exported from the UK to Singapore in 1964, imported back to the UK in 1975 and has had three owners to date.


  • Original 15in wire-spoke rims with Jaguar spinners
  • Finished in Silver Grey Metallic
  • Some scratches evident on the paintwork

The Jaguar Mark 2 proudly displays its Silver Grey Metallic paintwork and, although it bears signs of its age and history in the form of scratches, its elegance is still upheld. Original 15in wire-spoke rims adorned with Jaguar spinners complement the classic aesthetics, delivering a statement of timeless style.

There is some pitting to the chrome on both front and rear bumpers and corrosion can be found on the spoked rims. There is also some bubbling to the paintwork around the front grille.

  • Fitted with a 3,781cc engine
  • Manual four-speed gearbox with overdrive
  • Detailed mechanical service history from Singapore (see photos)

This Jaguar Mark 2 is powered by the iconic XK 3.8-litre straight-six engine, demonstrating the remarkable engineering prowess that made Jaguar a household name. A manual four-speed gearbox with overdrive is fitted and although the car ran under its own power whilst being moved around during the photoshoot, it is recommended that the engine be properly recommissioned.

This Jaguar boasts a detailed mechanical service history which includes replacement of  both top and bottom timing chains, steering tie rods and two front suspension ball joints (see document photos). The remaining tread on the tyres has been measured at 5mm, although these are slightly perished and would need to be replaced before being put on the road. The underbody shows some surface rust and corrosion on certain components.


  • Period correct dashboard
  • Generous rear passenger space
  • Invoice receipts of interior work done to the Jaguar in Singapore (see photos)

The interior exudes timeless charm, with a period-correct dashboard and generous rear passenger space that harks back to the Jaguar’s reputation for offering luxury and comfort. Notably, an invoice dated 10 April 1973 reveals repairs to the interior, including renewing the headlining, polishing the wooden trim, and re-trimming the front leather seats (see documents).

Around the driver’s door, the rubber seal is perishing on the sill. The headlining now shows wear to the fabric.

There are some lovely touches such as the wooden trays on the seat backs and the tan leather divider between the rear seats that contribute to Jaguar’s ethos of grace, pace and space and help fully justify the Mark 2’s place as an iconic, luxury vehicle.
