As we all know the prices of MK 2`s have rocketed over the past few years and still seem to be on the increase.

This particular flagship model vehicle had been with its previous owner for many years as he had intended to restore her back to her full glory days.  He decided to concentrate on other projects so I decided to purchase it off him and give someone else the opportunity as it was not being used.

The car is up and running  and although generally solid she is now in need of some  restoration work to bring her back to her former days. Body/paintwork could do with some tlc and if I`m honest you would probably look to attend to the body imperfections (bubbling/blistering/cracking/fading/peeling) and then give her a fresh coat of paint.

Although the photos are current they are somewhat misleading in my opinion. and really make the car look better than it looks in the metal she does need some body attention and then a repaint. nd what a looker  she will be with fresh paint and the chrome and wire wheels all polished up. /span>

Interior is all there and in very usable condition whilst leaving some scope for further improvement.

From a visual perspective the underside looks good and I can see no obvious signs of any welding needing requiring but I must stress that I`m not an expert and this is an unqualified honest opinion only.

Chromework is all solid if not a little dull and pitted in places.

Bodywork needs attention and painting.  

To summarise. this is the classic mk 2 jag 3. 8 manual overdrive black red interior just a cracking combination it can sit around for weeks and fires up within a few cranks making superb oil pressure and sounds superb proper bank robber exhaust note. but will obviously need a lot more tlc to make her a good looking/show car

  Basically to make really nice again factor in some bodywork. a fresh paint job and some recommissioning of all the running gear.


Before deciding what this car is worthplease spend a few moments to do a Google search to ascertain what the going rate is for this model.

I doubt very much you will find a nice like-for-like for under £15k.

If you search further afield. and at the top end of the market. you will regularly see prices for this model exceeding £35. 00+. !!!

Nevertheless to entice a hassle free sale I have set my price well below the current market/insurance value. so this is definitely a bargain to be had.

I hope I have covered most things. and maybe my description is a little off putting but i would sooner be harsh in my descriptions and then when you actually see the jaguar you may be pleasantly surprised but please feel free to contact me with any specific questions you may have and I will do my best to answer honestly and to the best of my knowledge but

I`m sure I`ve missed loads so please feel free to fire away with your `genuine` questions!!!

 

PLEASE NOTE:

Obviously due to storage of my trade vehicles and the very nature of older vehicles. I would suggest a good service/overhaul of all fluids. brakes. rubbers. clutches. pipes. engines and electrics would be advisable and most likely needed in some cases. and advise having the car trailored to its new home. /span>
