Stunning 1966 Jaguar (Mk2*)
S-Type 3,8 Manual/Overdrive
The Jaguar S-Type was a major redevelopment of the Mk2 Jaguar,
Offered from 44 years of continual family ownership, this remarkable Jaguar S-Type has had just five owners from new and looks like a museum showpiece inside and out. The metallic gold paintwork looks flawless and the red leather upholstery, toning carpets, headlining are fully restored. The engine was professionally rebuilt 16,000 miles ago. The previous keeper advises that his father personally carried out a full detailed restoration over many years. Stainless steel exhaust was fitted in 1997. In April 2018 was subject to a full overhaul, service and MOT by Twyford Moors, XK specialists, at a cost of £7,563. Understandably it drives superbly.
Rather than attempt to describe the car further, we suggest you look at the above pictures which speak for themselves. Cherished cars like this don’t come up very often so invest and enjoy.
The history file contains a selection of invoices, the original green log book commencing from 1966, MOT to May 2019, MOT history from 2006 to 2012 and Jaguar Enthusiasts Club membership documents. Comes with folder of history. Owner’s fully restored toolkit box.

Announced 30 September 1963 it was a technically more sophisticated development of the Mark 2, offering buyers a more luxurious alternative without the size and expense of the Mark X. Refinements included reclining front seats, twin fuel tanks, fully independent suspension, self-adjusting disc brakes on all 4 wheels. The S-Type sold alongside the Mark 2, as well as the Jaguar 420 following its release in 1966.
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.
