1964 Jaguar Mk II 3.8 MOD
Matching numbers car that runs and drives; requires bodywork TLC; PAS; the model to have
Purchased by the vendor in 2000, this UK-supplied full-fat RHD 3.8 MOD comes with its original engine installed and has been running about the site since arrival.
The car was in pristine condition at the time of purchase, and Jaguar specialists CMC looked after care and maintenance - with bills on file to show work done.
A change in circumstances saw the car remaining unused for a few years and then loss of storage led to a period outside in less than ideal conditions.
Photos on file show a bare metal pre-2000 restoration, which sadly is required once again, the lower panel work showing deterioration. The vendor recently took the car back to CMC who issued a detailed list of jobs required to get it back on the road. They submitted it for an MOT which it failed with an impressive list of jobs for which their repair estimate totalled some £3,400 - not actually that bad given their hourly rate...
For the skilled amateur, this could be done for a lot less and for someone with welding and paint skills, represents a suberb opportunity to return this potentially valuable car back to splendour.
It comes with its original buff logbook showing it was first registered to The Amalgamated Roadstone Corp in London on 24th March 1964 and then living in Gloucestershire in the early 1970s.
The JDHT have confirmed it retains its matching numbers engine, making the project even more appealing at the modest guide price suggested.
If you are going to spend time and effort on a restoration project, one should always start with the ultimate expression of the model in question, which this car undoubtedly is.
