1968 Jaguar MkII 340 Automatic

SOLD £10,976

Smart example from long term family ownership; 4.2 litre engine from early XJ6 fitted - eminently usable

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 synthetic leather like material Ambla in matching dark blue with burr walnut dash and automatic transmission. The car also retains its period correct circular grills fitted if no fog lamps were specified as optional extras. The car 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 the car was 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. Also included in the history file are a Haynes manual, workshop manuals and other literature plus various diagrams. Driven to the sale, the car 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 car represents an enticing proposition at the guide price here.
