A RUNNINNG AND DRIVING 3. 8 S-TYPE MARK II! PERFECT FOR THE JAGUAR ENTHUSIAST WITH A KNACK FOR RESTORING! FITTED WITH AN AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION. AM/FM RADIO. SPEED-HOLD AND BRAND NEW CHROME WIRE WHEELS! SPECIFICATIONS Year 1965 Make Jaguar Model 3. 8 S-Type VIN P1B76828BW Mileage 80. 86 Engine 3. 8 L Cylinders Inline 6 Transmission 3-Speed Automatic Title Clear/MO Color Sherwood Green Interior Color Red DESCRIPTION The Jaguar Mark II. first introduced in late 1959 as a replacement for the Mark I. was the second iteration of a four door saloon by the Coventry automaker. Sir William Lyons adage of “Grace…pace…space” had certainly been further tweaked from the Mark I. as the Mark II was even more elegant. faster and roomier than its predecessor! Offered with the standard host of luxury features expected from Jaguar. the car was available with three different versions of the XK engine ranging from a relatively tame 2. 5L unit to a beefier 3. 4L and all the way to the 3. 8L cars. fitted standard with twin SU HD6 carburetors. The flagship 3. 8 motor shared a block. crankshaft. rods and pistons with the XKE; it had one carburetor and 30 less hp. Inside. the car had even more burled walnut and leather. in addition to a revised heating system and 20% more greenhouse glass. The Mark I had a notoriously narrow rear track (4 inches narrower than the front) and the Mark II's revised suspension geometries and live rear axle reduced the amicable difference.
Jaguar launched two new models in 1961: the Mark X (Mark 10) saloon and the wonderful E-Type. Both were fitted with triple SU carbs and newly developed independent rear suspension. It was at this point that Sir William Lyons decided that the Mark II could use updating to remain competitive in the market. Devised as a major redesign of the Mark II. the S-type adopted a medium scale version of the Mark X's independent rear suspension. as well as a noticeably longer rear end and interior updates. Europe got the choice of 3. 4 and 3. 8 S-Types while the US only got the top range 3. 8 S-Type. which shared its motor with the Mark II. Further differences from the Mark II included a revised 3. 5 lock-to-lock Burman power steering rack. replacing the old 4. 3 lock-to-lock unit that was criticized for being excessively slow. Further structural and cosmetic changes to accommodate the S-Type's independent rear and widened 54” rear track added almost 350 pounds. To compensate. the center of gravity was lowered with a revised roofline and sleeker rear end. The single 14 US gallon fuel tank in the Mark II was replaced with dual 8 gallon fuel tanks so that the spare tire compartment could be lowered and centered. Inside. a smaller scale Mark X burled walnut dash with cupholder / tray table and parcel shelf were added as well as new controls for the once again revised heating system. Small. concealed armrests were added to the wider front seats that had new integrated fore/aft adjustment. The rear passengers were also treated to a center armrest and Mark X style folding picnic trays. On paper. the added weight of the S-Type looked as if it could really dampen the fun but performance figures of the time didn't lie…the 3. 8 S-Type with an Automatic transmission could muster 0-60 in 11. 5 seconds and could go on to 116 mph! As a result. they were very popular for people on both sides of the law.
We are very excited to offer this 1965 Jaguar 3. 8 S-Type saloon! Finished in Sherwood Green over Red Ambla upholstery. this Jaguar is sure to catch attention! Fitted with its original. numbers matching 3. 8L motor with correct twin SU HD6 carbs. it also has the following factory options: Automatic transmission. AM/FM radio. Speed-hold and Chrome wire knock-off wheels! This car maintains standard features such as full Smiths gauges (speedometer/odometer. tachometer/clock. water temperature. oil pressure. fuel level and amps). Lucas day/night rear-view mirror. dual visors with passenger vanity mirror. four wheel disc brakes. Powr-Lok limited-slip rear end with 3. 54 gearing. bumper guards. and seat belts. Looking closer. you will find original 1964 date-coded Triplex glass and the original owner's manual.
While the car does run and drive. we are presenting the car as a project. The exterior of the car has been partially repainted and clear coated and the red interior appears to have been replaced at some point. Both are showing signs of wear and age. as is the burled walnut on the dash. which we believe to be original. This car has brand new chrome wire wheels wrapped in Michelin HydroEdge 205/70 R15 tires. The exterior chrome with the exception of the bumpers. is in decent shape; the door trim is shiny and smooth but the bumpers. hood trim. license plate surround. passenger front door handle and emblem will likely need redone. In the interior. the chrome is in excellent shape and all the wood on the doors. B-pillars and rear is all new. As mentioned. the dash appears original and untouched. In the trunk is an original wire wheel and a tool kit complete except for one screwdriver. Once warmed up. this Jaguar runs great. shifts smooth and has no trouble getting up to speed. The car comes with a plethora of service records including $18. 01 in receipts and records since 2006. They were done at Autos of Europe. Inc of Manchester. MO and are as follows:
6/19/06 - $8. 32. 67 – Cooling system service. reseal intake manifold. repair rear subframe. brake fluid service. replace rear brakes and rotors. remove and install rear suspension. replace rear brake calipers. replace emergency brake system. install thermostat and repair housing. replace radiator and fuel hoses. differential service and reseal. remove and rebuild carbs. oil filter. replace tie rod ends. replace center line. repair shut-off valve and a transmission service.
11/29/07 - $4. 72. 67 – Adjust carb. replace tires. balance wheels. replace front brakes and rotors. repair front brake calipers. check and repair heater blower. remove and reinstall all rear wood panels.
9/28/12 - $2. 67. 31 – Oil change. check tire pressures. fluid top-off. carburetor float rebuild. remove fuel tank/inspect/seal/reinstall. remove and replace fuel cold sender. replace exhaust from the manifold back. powder coat manifold black.
The car presents a drivable project for a Jaguar enthusiast looking to restore a classic saloon! The odometer shows 80. 86 miles and it is working. We believe these miles to be original but have no way of being certain. We would be more than happy to answer any additional questions and better explain any aspects of the car that may be of further interest! Thanks for looking!
