Jaguar Mk2, the classic premium sports sedan
The Jaguar Mk2 - a quick, top-quality four-door car, beautifully finished with superior materials - is the best classic example of a contemporary premium sports sedan. It is also, of course, fitted with an extraordinarily potent engine that provides sports car performance.
This description applies to the Jaguar Mk2 in general, but especially to this top-end version with its 3.8 engine. It is the fastest and most sought-after Mk 2 version and has the added advantage of automatic transmission that drastically increases its luxuriousness. Driving the Mk2 is sensational. Its interior and exterior exudes a 1960’s atmosphere, while it has the performance of a present-day car.
Jaguar Mk 2 3.8 automatic – 1961 in detail
This stylish Jaguar Mk 2 is a familiar face at Noble House. It was delivered as new to the United States in 1961 and was imported into the Netherlands during the early 1990’s.
Between ’96 and ’98, Noble House did extensive work on the car. The Mk 2 was fully dismantled and, starting from bare sheet metal, fully rebuilt and returned to pristine condition. Besides dealing with the sheet metal and paint, other work was also done on the engine, the gearbox, the steering, the front- and rear suspension and much more. Of course, the interior was fully restored, all the while retaining the patina. More than € 70,000 has been invested in this Jaguar.
We recorded the entire restoration process in order to be able to provide an overview of the work done. The Mk 2 has only travelled 16,000 miles since the restoration and, unsurprisingly, this highly sought-after Mk 2 3.8 automatic is still in excellent condition.
