1967 Jaguar MkII No Reserve

[ translate ]

Lot details Registration No: Unregistered Chassis No: 121567DN MOT: Exempt Bespoke-built c.2012-2018 'modernised' Mk2 Jaguar Large list of upgrades for 21st century roads Modern air conditioning from RetroAir USA, electrically adjustable X300 sport seats Some would say 'widely regarded' as the best-looking Saloon ever made on these shores, the Jaguar Mk2 embodied Sir William Lyons' famous philosophy of ‘grace, pace and space’. Some owners are never fully content and try to improve the ownership experience, which is where the creator of this car comes in. Completed in c.2018, the initiator of this build had said he always loved the lines of the Mk2, but was concerned that after years of being spoiled by the sheer convenience of modern cars, the reality of driving such an old car simply couldn’t live up to the dream. His answer was simple, he would get one bespoke-built just the way he wanted it. His first task was to source the best possible shell he could find, the solution coming in the form of a 'virtually rust-free' two-owner Mk2 2.4 model dating from October 1967, which he bought in 2012. Over the next six years he had the car 'professionally rebuilt from the ground-up', adding many upgrades along the way. Highlights of the full 2018 specification include a fully overhauled 3.8 Litre engine with new pistons etc., mated to a reconditioned Jaguar X300 automatic gearbox. Uprated systems include disc brakes and rear coil suspension conversions, copper extra-cored radiator, Kenlowe fan, heating and ventilation including modern air conditioning from RetroAir USA, electrically adjustable X300 sport seats, inertia-reel seat belts front and rear; Nardi steering wheel; modern sound system, new door, boot and screen rubbers, 4 new 15” MWS 72-spoke chrome wire wheels with new Avon tyres; the list goes on. Halfway through the build the then owner saw details of the upgraded Mk2 Jaguar that Ian Callum (Director of Design at Jaguar) had specially commissioned Classic Motor Cars Ltd (CMC) to make for him on his retirement. Taking inspiration from that car, he copied the front and rear styling, ditching the heavy chrome bumpers in favour of lightweight resin bumpers moulded to the shape of the car and painted in body colour, a mesh grille being added for a more sporting look. The wheel arches were also subtly flared and the whole car treated to a bare metal repaint in Rouge Lucifer (Diablo Red) Metallic. Now wearing Silver to the bumpers and in need of some fettling, it is offered at a fraction of the costs lavished upon it in 2018. It needs to be noted a mechanical issue coming from the engine compartment is present and the Jaguar has also recently been returned to the UK from Spain and has been marked for export by the DVLA so duty will be owing.
