The Jaguar Mk II Sale
Having owned this 1967 Jaguar Mk II since the Autumn of 2015, it was purchased as a ready to drive example. Sitting alongside an XK150 and an E Type in the Garage, it very much sits in the practical classic category with 4 doors, a pokey 3.4L six cylinder engine and a luxurious red leather interior. Paintwork is excellent, gleaming and sparkling in the sunshine during its Summer runs.
During our ownership, no major work has been required, but regular maintenance and preservation of its originality. A set of Sports Style Spats was fitted to the vehicle, that can just as easily be removed by the next owner as desired.
The V5C is present, registered at our current address, and shows 6 former keepers.
Purchased from Winspeed Motors (Jaguar Specialists) near Guildford, the car sits as mechanically sound, having been serviced and tested by the vending Dealer at the time of purchase.
The Jaguar presents as original in its specification of Golden Sand over Red Leather. The four speed Manual Gearbox delivers the one hundred or so Horses to the hubcapped steel wheels with aplomb. As mentioned, there are a set of Sports Style Spats fitted to the Mk II, done so during our ownership; the original Deep Spats [covering the rear wheels to the chassis line] are supplied with the car.
The Odometer reads 90,637 genuine miles which is corroborated by decades of MOT Certification contained in the inch thick History Folder, along with Tax Discs, Service Invoices, Maintenance and Parts Receipts and all specialist Work carried out on the Mk II dating back to the early 1980s.
There is an A4 Sleeved Folder of paperwork going back 40+ Years, including:
- Tax Disks
- MOT Certificates
- Receipts and Invoices for Work, Parts and Services.
- V5C [in my name at my current address]
The Car will also come with a Cover [under which it is currently stored].
Supplied with 2 sets of Keys including a vintage Jaguar Fob, there is also a selection of components and parts included in the Sale.
Curiously, there is also a reprint of the original 1961 The Motor magazine Road Test included in the Folder.

Surely, there are a few Mk IIs in the classifieds, but this one presents as a practical, usable and enjoyable entry to an era of great Jaguars. The 3.4L engine sits on the sweet spot between economy and performance, delivering an enjoyable drive with enough power to meet the demands of modern day traffic.
If you are after a sensible turnkey entry into Classic Jaguar Ownership this really is the Car to start it with.
£29,500 will get you a great example of a beautiful car.
