1968  Jaguar 240 MK2 2. 4L Manual Overdrive

(Jaguar will be sold with brand new MOT and a full service. please read below for details) Tax free vehicle. current disc runs until 31 May 2014. Current mileage reading 73212.

Up for sale is our 1968 Jaguar 240. we have owned this car since 2011 and when we purchased it the car had just gone through a complete body restoration. During our ownership the vehicle has only been used as a wedding car with Northumberland Wedding Cars. The only reason for selling this fantastic car is due to a change in direction with regards to the business. so all our cars unfortunately have to be sold.

Please look at website for our other vehicles at northumberlandweddingcars. co. uk

The Jaguar has easily been one of our most reliable cars. always starting on the button. This wedding car has been very popular with brides. and easily takes bookings both in the summer and winter but whether you are buying for a business or as your own classic car you will not be let down as it is in excellent condition both inside and out. If you are looking at this car as a Jaguar enthusiast then. apart from an upgrade to an alternator and electronic ignition. this is a genuine 240 other than the Jaguar MK2 wire wheels (curly). which is to our taste and finishes the car off in our eyes.

As I have already mentioned the car went through a complete body restoration. which anyone coming to view will see. The underside is rock solid and has been waxed oiled.   The photos of the underside confirm this condition and show also a stainless steel exhaust fitted. Our independent garage that we use for our wedding cars (a Jaguar/Daimler specialist) confirms the restoration was extremely well done. They have serviced and completed work to this car as required. Although this went through a complete bodywork refurbish. the door cards and bumpers weren't immaculate enough for our business so we brought it further up to a standard that our wedding customers deserved.  We changed:-

Wheels (Jag Mk2 curly) wire wheels with splined hubs and butterfly wheel nuts. Brand new stainless steel bumpers. Brand New door cards. wooden steering wheel. new seat belts.

All of the above extras cost over £3000. which we have receipts for.

We have ensured that the car has been meticulously maintained using the above mentioned local jaguar/Daimler specialist garage for servicing. mots. alternator conversion etc. We have never had any major issues but any potential buyer will be pleased to know that we have replaced the following parts:-

Distributor and leads. coil. Fuel Pump. Alternator fitted instead of a dynamo together with electronic ignition to replace points(easily reversed if you choose). battery. brake light switch and have receipts of any work carried out.

Bad Points.

I can honestly sit and write the only bad points are the odd chip in the paint work which are in the four photos below. And. although the headlining is excellent as shown in that photograph. the passenger side sun visor should really be replaced or repaired.
