1966 Jaguar Mk2 3,4 S-Type AUTO
Fully restored car with new interior!

This beautiful, show-standard Jag is now back in UK from America, after lengthy hibernation.

Exported to the USA in the seventies where it remained for over 40 years. In the early nineties the car was fully prepared to a high professional standard, but only driven very sparingly until being placed in long term storage prior to being repatriated to the UK last year. Since then it has undergone over £3000 worth of re-commissioning including new battery, stainless steel exhaust, carb and steering overhaul to make it ready for the show season.

Walking round the car today, the bodywork, including the underside, looks faultless, obviously never see rain. The Ivory paint finish is exceptional and the body shut-lines are all factory perfect. All the bright work is very good and possibly all original too.

The interior is fully reupholstered in beige, and the wool headlining renewed along with the carpets and doorcards. The woodwork is patinated but still in good condition. The boot is in spotless order and the original Jaguar toolkit and large tools are all present and correct.

The engine performs well and registers textbook oil pressure (60 psi on start up). The auto gearbox is smooth in operation and the Intermediate Hold is fully functional.

All the ancillaries work as they should, and the car is suitable for showing or long-distance touring in style. Any form of engineering inspection is welcomed in our workshops.

The cost of restoring another car to this standard today would be eye-watering, so here is an opportunity to acquire a legendary British Classic for a relative modest outlay. This car will appreciate in value as the years roll by, so invest and enjoy!

Car comes with V5, MOT to Feb 2017, Workshop Manual, Original Jag S Owner’s Manual and free Historic Road Tax.

Model History

The S-Type was a major redevelopment of the Mark 2. It used a mid-scale version of the Mark X Independent Rear Suspension to replace the Mark 2’s live rear axle and featured longer rear bodywork, among other styling and interior changes. The S-Type was available with either 3,4 or 3,8 litre XK engines but only in twin carburettor form because the triple carb setup would not fit into what was essentially still the Mark 2 engine bay. The S-Type remained on sale until the arrival of the Jaguar XJ6 in 1968.
