1968 Jaguar MkII 340 Automatic


Tidy MkII from long term family ownership with considerable history file; fitted with a lusty 4.2 from an early XJ6 in '86

Dating from April 1968, this late model 340 comes from the run-out period of the MkII model before replacement by the XJ6 in September ’68. Finished in dark blue with Ambla upholstery in matching dark blue, it has a burr walnut dash, automatic transmission and period correct circular grills fitted as no fog lamps were specified as optional extras. MUH800F has been in the same hands since September 1994 and has evidently been cherished but lack of use has ultimately necessitated its sale. The history file includes the V5, an old style V5 and original buff logbook. There are an array of historic invoices dating back to the 80’s which include restoration works to the front door skins, inner wings, arches and spring boxes along with more recent maintenance. An engineers report on file dating from 1986 shows this example has been fitted with a 4.2 litre unit from an early XJ6, carried out in a ‘safe and professional manner…meeting insurance requirements..’ with an odometer reading of 28,990 miles at the time. Showing just 46,473 miles it comes with a current MOT valid until October 2020 with no advisories recorded, most positive for a Jaguar of this vintage.  A quick look at the MOT history shows it has covered little over 1,000 miles in the past ten years. Also included in the history file are a Haynes manual, workshop manuals and other literature plus various diagrams. Driven to the sale, this 340 presents well with tidy body and bright work and sounds well through the stainless-steel exhaust fitted to it. We all love a MkII and this one represents an enticing proposition at the guide price here.
