The lineage of the Mk. II can be directly traced back to its
predecessor. the 2. 4 litre saloon or Mk. I as it would be
retrospectively known in later years. Traditional Jaguar buyers
would not feel alienated by the new offering from Coventry. as the
interior was up to their usual standards with leather and walnut
being the order of the day. With 112bhp available. the 2. 4
was not overly burdened with pace so Jaguar's response was to come
in the shape of a 3. 4 litre version which was launched in
1957. Rather than introduce a completely brand new car. br/>Jaguar successfully re-designed the car from stem to stern and the
Mk. II was born. debuting in 1959. The chunky windscreen pillars of
the early car were replaced by slimmer offerings giving a much more
airy cabin which both improved the styling and freshened up the
design for the new decade.

Originally supplied by Henlys at Piccadilly. London W1. to Mrs.
K. Tansley of Hyde Park Street. London on 1st May 1961. this Mk. II
was taken by Mrs. Tansley to Tangier in September 1962 where it
remained until 1983. Upon returning to the UK. the car was then
transferred to Mr. P. Skinner who is Mrs. Tansleys' son. Mr.
Skinner remains as the only other name on the registration
document; the current owner has not transferred the document into
his name even though he has owned the Jaguar for some 25 years.
Having stored it for his lengthy ownership. the vendor has recently
re-commissioned the Jaguar prior to offering her for auction. Our
test drive indicated everything operating as it should. although
some further re-commissioning is required to enhance the car
further. it should be noted however that she passed an MoT on 24th
October 2014 with only a couple of minor advisories. Supplied with
the original bill of sale indicating the cost price of £1. 83-11-8d
including the extras of; Power steering. laminated windscreen. br/>white wall tyres. front seat belts and a Cartec safety lock (very
rare and still on the car). An interesting history file including
the buff logbook accompanies this car which is a matching numbers
example and bearing the original registration plate of 955 BYR.
Finished in Carmen Red with a grey leather interior. this early
automatic model is a great project with many features including the
interior in original condition.
