The 240 and 340 were introduced in September 1967 to fill the gap until the introduction of the XJ6. The 340 was discontinued on the introduction of the XJ6 but the 240 continued as a budget priced model until April 1969.Output of the 240 engine was increased to 133 bhp and torque was increased. It now had a straight-port type cylinder head and twin HS6 SU carburettors with a new inlet manifold. The automatic transmission was upgraded to a Borg-Warner 35 dual drive range. Power steering by Marles Varamatic was now available on the 340. There was a slight reshaping of the rear body and slimmer bumpers and over-riders were fitted. For the first time the 2.4 litre model could exceed 100 mph. The economies of the new 240 and 340 models came at a cost, the leather upholstery was replaced by Ambla, a leather like material and tufted carpet was used on the floor, though both had been introduced on the Mark 2 a year earlier. 

This is an example of the rare Jaguar 1968 340 Manual with Overdrive saloon car. The car is left hand drive, and has only 73.000 miles on the clock. The starts on the button, runs drives and stops, but has been in storage for some years. This is an ideal easy recommission, with the interior in great shape looking very original. The car is finished in a beautiful two-tone paint, and is currently getting a UK registration at DVLA. Of the 91,000 or so Mk2 jaguars produced over the years, only 2,788 were 340 models, so a very rare variant.
