MAY: 1961 JAGUAR 3.4 MK2

Classics Monthly - - Reader Restorations 2018 Round Up -

Richard What­ley has a mas­sive soft spot for Mk2 Jaguars and bought this 3.4 litre ex­am­ple as a good hon­est look­ing car a clas­sic auc­tion. When Richard ex­am­ined the ex­ten­sive history file that came with the car, he dis­cov­ered the Jaguar had spend most of its life in Tang­ier’s where it had been stored un­der cover for a long time. A pro­fes­sional body shop man­ager by trade, Richard stripped the Jaguar to bare metal be­fore re-spray­ing the car bright red. Ac­cord­ing to its owner, the car has never been welded and the in­te­rior only re­quired a new set of car­pets and a good clean brought it up like brand-new. The Jaguar is still on its orig­i­nal en­gine and the only ma­jor me­chan­i­cal work Richard has done to the car was to have the steer­ing rack over­hauled by a spe­cial­ist work­shop.
