By the late 1950s, Jaguar was a force to be reckoned with after several wins at Le Mans and already producing great cars such as the XK range. The Mark 2 was another William Lyons masterpiece with its compact sports saloon body and range of powerful six-cylinder race-bred engines.

This striking example was always finished in Dark blue, wire wheels and overdrive, always a Uk supplied RHD car with the desirable manual overdrive gearbox.

She has enjoyed restorative maintenance including a high-quality nut and bolt restoration completed around 2014 which included engine, gearbox, upgrades etc.

She also enjoyed some sensible upgrades including:

  • Rack and pinion power steering
  • Upgraded 4 pot brakes
  • Alternator
  • Electronic fuel pump
  • High torque starter
  • Electric front seats
  • Upgraded suspension
  • Kenlowe fan
  • Electronic ignition

The original engine has been rebuilt, including a straight port E type cylinder head, overbored block with oversized pistons, lightened flywheel, tuned exhaust system, twin Su carbs and tuned.

The result of the engine upgrade is a very lively car with the ability to rev higher and is far more sporty than a standard car whilst retaining the smoothness of the small block six cylinder.

All adding up to a great driving proposition especially compared to the standard car.

There is a very good history file including invoices, mots, manuals, Heritage certificate etc. and restoration information/photos etc.

On the road, she drives very strongly with a super slick gearbox and more powerful engine keeping up with modern traffic made easy and safe handling with powerful brakes a big improvement over the standard car’s ability.
