NO CONTEST! READ ON.

THE MUCH IMPROVED 240 OFFERS A GOOD DRIVING EXPERIENCE WITH 135 BHP. 106 MPH (AUTOCAR) AND UPTO 25 MPG. AND 2 CWT LIGHTER THAN THE PRECEEDING 2. 4 AND 3 CWT LIGHTER THAN THE 3. 4. THE RESULT IS LIGHTER MORE RESPONSIVE STEERING ACTION WITH QUICKER TURN IN.

SPECIFICATION

4 DOOR SALOON WITH GOOD LEGROOM AND ACCESS. PAINTED IN OLD ENGLISH WHITE WITH RED LEATHER SEATS.

FITTED WITH TWO INERTIA REEL REAR SEAT BELTS.

CHOME PLATED WIRE WHEELS

2483cc SIX CYLINDER DOHC 135 BHP ENGINE FITTED AS STANDARD WITH THE STRAIGHT PORT HEAD AND TWIN SU CARBURRETERS. nbsp;UPRATED COOLING SYSTEM. TWIN PIPE EXHAUST SYSTEM.

TESTED  BY THE "AUTOCAR" IN JANUARY 1968 AT 106 MPH.

FOUR SPEED ALL SYNCHROMESH GEARBOX WITH OVERDRIVE ON TOP GEAR. UP TO 25 MPG ACHIEVEABLE.

CONDITION GUIDE

I WAS SELLING THESE CARS NEW IN THE 1960. SO I AM ABLE TO PROVIDE A CONDITION GUIDE. /u> BIDDERS SHOULD VIEW AND DRIVE THE CAR AND CONFIRM MY DESCRIPTION. SEE MY FEEDBACK AND RETURN POLICY.

OVERALL THE JAGUAR IS AT THE TOP END OF CONDITION 2. AND IS READY TO DRIVE AWAY WITHOUT FURTHER WORK.

PANEL FIT AND PAINT FINISH ARE VERY GOOD. CHROME IS GOOD. THE REAR BUMPER IS SERVICEABLE BUT NOT PERFECT.

THE WOODWORK AND INTERIOR TRIM ARE EXCELLENT

I SUBMITTED THE 240 FOR AN EARLY MOT TEST AT THE LOCAL JAGUAR RESTORER - DOVEDALE GARAGE. THE CURRENT JAGUAR DRIVERS CLUB " CHAMPION OF CHAMPIONS" 2012 NEC CONCOURS TROPHY HOLDERS WITH THEIR MK 11. FOLLOWING A REPLACEMENT STEERING JOINT AND A UNDERSIDE INSPECTION A NEW MOT CERTIFICATE WAS ISSUED WITH NO ADVISORIES. A LEAKING RADIATOR WAS RE-CORED BY CPA SERVICES- 01476 571404.  BOTH EFFICIENTLY AND REASONABLY.

WITH THE FIRST OWNER KEEPING THE JAGUAR UNTIL 2005 THE CAR REMAINS ORIGINAL AND UNSPOILT. RETAINING THE BRITAX STATIC FRONT SEAT BELTS. SINGLE O/S WING MIRROR AND WHAT COULD BE THE ORIGINAL ACE "WHITE PEAK" NUMBER PLATES. A PERIOD RADIOMOBILE 1080 RADIO IS FITTED.

THE HISTORY FILE DETAILS RESTORATION WORK OVER THE RECENT YEARS.

I AM FORTUNATE TO HAVE THE JAGUAR IN MY CARE SO AN EXTENDED ROAD TEST WAS CARRIED OUT- NO HARDSHIP!

THE ENGINE STARTS PROMPTLY FROM COLD USING THE FACTORY FITTED MANUAL CHOKE. HOT STARTING IS INSTANT.

ON THE ROAD THE 240 IS A DELIGHT TO DRIVE. QUICK ENOUGH WITH A PLEASANT EXHAUST BURBLE AND IS TAUT AND RATTLE FREE. CLUTCH. GEARBOX AND OVERDRIVE OPERATE CORRECTLY. THE PLEASANT SURPRISE IS THE STEERING ACTION. TOO OFTEN THE WEAK FEATURE OF THE MK 11. I HAVE NOT DRIVEN A BETTER NON-ASSISTED SYSTEM. BUYER ARE ENCOURAGED TO DRIVE THE 240 AND CONFIRM MY OPINION.

THE ALL-ROUND DISC BRAKES ARE EXCELLENT. THE HANDBRAKE IS EFFICIENT.

ALL EQUIPMENT WORKS CORRECTLY. HOT OIL PRESSURE IS 40LBS @ 2000 RPM. 50 LBS @ 3000 RPM. A GOOD CHARGE IS SHOWN ON THE AMMETER.

THE TOTAL MILES COVERED IS 120076. THE COMPLETE MOT CERT HISTORY RECORDS 99355 MILES AT THE 1985 TEST. CURRENT ODOMETER READING 20076.

THIS IS A CLASSIC JAGUAR THAT IS EASY AND PLEASANT TO DRIVE. WELL ABLE TO COPE WITH MODERN TRAFFIC. ALTHOUGH SOME FURTHER REAR VIEW MIRRORS WOULD BE WELCOME.

THE FRONT WHEELS HAVE A SLIGHT IMBALANCE AT 40 MPH. THE BUDGET TYRES FITTED HAVE GOOD TREAD BUT THE CAR REALLY DESERVES A SET OF PREMIUM TYRES. TAKE ADVICE.

IF YOU ARE WARY OF BUYING A MK 11 BECAUSE OF THEIR REPUTION FOR  POOR HANDLING COME AND DRIVE THIS ONE!

FINALLY. THE PRISTINE WHITE JAGUAR IS A OBVIOUS WEDDING CAR AND PROCEEDS WILL HELP RUNNING COSTS.

A CAR TO BE PROUD OF.
