MAY: 1961 JAGUAR 3.4 MK2
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.
