KEN PEARSON CAR CONSULTANT OFFERS THIS JAGUAR 240 ON BEHALF OF THE DERBYSHIRE OWNER WHO IS THE REGISTERED KEEPER ON THE V5C.

NOW RE-LISTED FOLLOWING AN UNCOMPLETED SALE WITH A BIDDER WHO DID NOT VIEW THE CAR!

LOOKING FOR A MID-PRICE MK 11? THE CHOICE IS AN AVERAGE WEARY 3. 4/3. 8 OR A LAST OF THE MODEL RUN. A 240 MANUAL OVERDRIVE  WITH A GOOD HISTORY. WITH THE FIRST OWNER 1969 - 2005.

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 AND RED TRIM.

FITTED WITH TWO REAR SEAT BELTS.

CHROME 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.

CONDITION GUIDE - PLEASE READ CAREFULLY


WELL PRESENTED AND EXCELLENT MECHANICALLY THE JAGUAR IS READY TO DRIVE AWAY AND USE.

GOOD POINTS

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

THE WOODWORK. ASHBOARD. LEATHER SEATS. WEST OF ENGLAND CLOTH HEADLINING AND INTERIOR TRIM ARE EXCELLENT AND ARE A MAJOR EXPENSE ON A RESTORATION. SOME PEOPLE WOULD BUY THE CAR JUST FOR THE INTERIOR. ?

I SUBMITTED THE 240 FOR AN EARLY MOT TEST AT THE LOCAL CONCOURS WINNING JAGUAR RESTORER - DOVEDALE GARAGE. THE UNDERSIDE OF THE CAR WAS INSPECTED AND A NEW MOT CERTIFICATE WAS ISSUED WITH NO ADVISORIES.  

A 1998 INVOICE TO THE FIRST OWNER DETAILS BODY RESTORATION: ALL JACKING POINTS REPLACED. INNER SILLS. REAR WHEEL ARCHES AND OUTER SILLS REPAIRED. FRONT CROSS MEMBER COVER REPAIRED.

THE ENGINE BAY AND BOOT AREA ARE GOOD.

A LEAKING RADIATOR WAS RE-CORED.

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.

FREE HISTORIC CLASS ROAD TAX. LONDON TAX EXEMPT.

.

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.

BAD POINTS

VERY FEW OF THESE LOWER PRICE 2. 4/240 WILL HAVE HAD A FULL BODY RESTORATION. THIS CAR IS TYPICAL. THE COST OF REPLACEMENT AFTER MARKET FRONT WINGS (AROUND £2500 EACH FROM MARTIN ROBEY) MEANS THAT LOCAL REPAIRS ARE THE BEST YOU ARE GOING TO GET AND NOW THERE IS SOME CORROSION UNDER THE PAINT AROUND THE HEADLAMPS. BOTTOM OF THE WINGS AND THE WHEEL ARCHES. THE FRONT VALANCE PANEL IS IN SIMILAR CONDITION. THE CAR IS NOT UNTIDY. CHECK THE ZOOM FACILITY ON THE PHOTOS.


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.


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

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

VIEWING IS ESSENTIAL.
