Auctioneers Notes: This 240 Mark II Jaguar is something very special. It is not for the purist (see appendix). I think she is quite superb. The vendor, who is a farmer, purchased her in 2014 as a barn find and set about creating the car you can see today. As you can see from the photographs, she looks like any Mark II Jaguar which has been beautifully restored but she has many other features which you might not find in other Jaguars. The history file has a great number of invoices, plus old MOT’s and old Log Books and a Jaguar Heritage Certificate. She currently has an MOT to 11.8.20. She has only been used each year to go to the Goodwood Revival, so sadly, she has come to the market for lack of use. When you see her, I hope you will agree with me, she is stunning. May be viewed by appointment.

Appendix from the vendor: “My car for the last six years I, together with a highly skilled semi-retired Jaguar mechanic built this lovely car from a barn find MK2 240. It now boasts a 4.2 engine and 3 speed auto box from a 69 XJ6 and 2″ SU carbs, stainless sports exhaust 2.88 Power lock diff.
