"Having purchased two cars from Jesmond and Gloria, we can't thank them enough for their service and warm and friendly approach to the transactions. Both cars were purchased sight unseen having total confidence in Jesmond's description, detail and assurances that the cars as presented on their web site were every bit as good as they looked, if not better… and they were. Jesmond is totally professional in his approach and true to his word in all aspects of the sale. Gloria is an absolute delight to work with in handling the logistics and transportation arrangements.

Sometime on or about September 1967 the 3.4 Litre Mark 2 cars were re badged as the 340. The 340 was an interim model intended to fill the gap until the introduction of the XJ6 in September 1968.
The automatic transmission was upgraded to a Borg-Warner 35 dual drive range. Power steering by Marles Varamatic was now available on the 340. Servicing intervals were increased from 3,200 km to 4,800 km. There was a slight reshaping of the rear body and slimmer bumpers and over-riders were fitted.
