1963 Jaguar Mk2 3.8 M/O


Specifications


Description

Jaguar saloons led the field in production and touring car races during much of the 60s!

This was a special kind of motoring, that no other car could offer for the same price at the time, when considering power performance, luxury and advanced engineering.

Jaguar managed this unusual feat, with the Mark 2. Like all Jaguars to this point (and some way beyond), company founder, William Lyons, was directly responsible for the way it looked - and with the fitment of revised upper door pressings, a deeper windscreen, larger glass area, and wider rear track, the already handsome Mark 1 saloon was transformed..

For the Mk2, the previously top-of-the range 3.4-litre car was now occupying the mid-range slot. But it was this car that really made the most of its forgiving suspension set-up, exploiting the wider front and rear track, and improving road manners. It was heavier than before so the Mk2's performance was slightly down on the Mk1's, but that was addressed by the arrival of the 3.8.

And it's here - with the 3.8-litre Mk2 - that Jaguar created a legend. The new flagship proved popular and profitable for Jaguar. With a 125mph top speed and throttle adjustable handling, the 3.8 became the saloon of choice for enthusiastic drivers. A limited-slip differential improved traction, and power-assisted steering (a standard fitment from 1960) further improved the way the car drove.

Considered the best of all Mk2s and market values reflect this.
