1962 JAGUAR 3.8 LITER MK 2 SALOON:
--Dark Green metallic with Black leather interior, Black carpeting, Uprated to 4.2 Liter inline 6-cylinder engine, Automatic transmission, Restored, Vintage Air, Sunroof.
Elegant and sporty, the 3.8 Mk 2 was one of the fastest four-door saloons in its day. It was stunning to look at and exceptional to drive. The 3.8 utilized a twin-carburetor variant of the engine for the E-Type. It shared the same block, crank, connecting rods and pistons. With 220bhp, the engine hauled the MK 2 to a top speed of 126mph. This example of the 3.8 Mk 2 has been uprated and fitted with the 4.2 Liter triple carbureted engine from an E-type. It packs quite the punch in this sporty saloon.
Fully restored in the early 2000’s, this Mk 2 saloon has been tastefully uprated for use in both touring and modern traffic conditions. Utilizing the bigger 4.2 Liter, triple carbureted inline-six cylinder from the E-type, this Mk 2 was also fitted with a GM 700R4 automatic overdrive transmission. During the restoration other upgrades included a stainless-steel exhaust system, power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering, bigger disc brakes, Koni shock absorbers, a heavy duty cross-flow radiator, Vintage Air Conditioning system including heat and cold A/C and well as the installation of an electric sunroof.
Having just two collector owners since the 1990’s, this Mk 2 is in superb condition throughout. All systems work as they should. A recent road test attests its being in excellent mechanical condition and extremely fun to drive. This Mk 2 includes its original operating maintenance and service handbook, original tool kit and original knock-off hammer. With its tasteful updates, this Mk 2 represents a great value for a collector or enthusiast seeking an enjoyable and reliable vintage Jaguar.
