The Jaguar Mk2 is a popular option in the classic car scene - and for good reason. Particularly in 3.8-litre form, it is both beautiful and swift and, thanks to recent screen appearances and general comfort levels, it appeals to a wide cross-section of buyers, regardless of their age or mobility.
This car was subject to an earlier restoration but appears to have been driven sparingly and well-looked-after since, and it has been serviced and maintained by highly-respected classic car specialists. We think it will sell for between £26,000 and £32,000.
Such cars do need garaging properly, with an eye on humidity levels to limit deterioration. But more than anything, this Jaguar begs to be taken out and driven - and putting in your best bid might just see you with your string-back-gloved hands on the Moto-Lita!

BORING, but IMPORTANT: Please note that whilst we at The Market always aim to offer the most descriptive and transparent auction listings available, we cannot claim they are perfect analyses of any of the vehicles for sale. We offer far greater opportunity for bidders to view, or arrange inspections for each vehicle thoroughly prior to bidding than traditional auctions, and we never stop encouraging bidders to take advantage of this. We do take a good look at the vehicles delivered to our premises for sale, but this only results in our unbiased personal observations, not those of a qualified inspector or other professional, or the result of a long test drive.
Also, localised paint repairs are common with collectable and classic cars and if they have been professionally carried out then they may be impossible to detect, even if we see the car in person. So, unless we state otherwise, please assume that this vehicle may have had remedial bodywork at some point in its life.
Additionally, please note that most of the videos on our site have been recorded using simple cameras which often result in 'average' sound quality; in particular, engines and exhaust notes can sound a little different to how they are in reality.
Please note that this is sold as seen and that, as is normal for used goods bought at auction, the Sale of Goods Act 1979 does not apply. See our FAQs for more info, and feel free to inspect any vehicle as much as you wish.
