1962 Jaguar Mk2 3.4 (Manual)

Paul Wright
Professional Consigner

Getaway drivers and gangsters in the '50s and '60s were in their element when it came to using the Mkll Jag as their daily commute.

Probably one of the most iconic saloon cars made. Classic looks, a comfortable saloon with plenty of room and performance to match, is why this was a firm favorite for some, shall we say, not so legally abiding citizens.

Launched in 1959, the MK2 Jaguar was fitted with either a 2.4 litre producing 120BHP or the much more powerful 3.4 litre which produces 210BHP. With excellent handling, this made it a very capable car, and it's no surprise why the car was so popular. Even today, with those 210 horses, it's no slouch.

This car comes to market from 4 years ownership, and in late February had major service/recommissioning work carried out after a long period of storage. Finished in green over green, its a 60s motoring icon.

This auction listing was written from information supplied by Paul after meeting Phil the owner, and having visited and photographed the vehicle.

Meet the owner

I know the previous keeper, so when I saw the Jaguar for sale in a local showroom, I just had to have it.

Phil purchased this wonderful 1962 Jaguar MKll 3.4, after driving past and seeing it for sale in a local car dealer showroom. It was put there by the owner, who he actually knew, so that it could be seen. Well it did the trick, and as soon as Phil saw it, he already knew what a stunning car it was, so a deal was struck and the rest, as they say, is history.

Whilst Phil immensely enjoyed driving the Jag in the past, it has spent quite some time in storage over the pandemic. As a result, and with a view to reducing his collection, this Mk2 comes to market. Phil will be happy to answer any questions about the car in the comments section below.

With a full extensive restoration in 1996 - nothing has been left untouched in this wonderful Jaguar MKII.

Wheels and Tyres

The wire wheels are believed to be the originals, which are well presented.

Being super picky, there are just some small areas of surface rust on a handful of the spokes.

The tyres are matching Michelin which are period looking, and look to be in excellent condition having not covered many miles.


The bodywork on this 1962 Jaguar MKII looks in excellent condition. The car is straight as a die with no annoying dinks or dents to be seen. The doors look to align just as Jaguar intended, and open and close with ease. The same can be said for the bonnet and boot which also look to align as they should. The rear arches have been fitted with some Coombes metal spats.

You will see looking at the underside of the Jag, just how much work has gone into it, and also how little use the car has had since the restoration - it really is extremely clean.

Please see the gallery for more detailed images.


The original colour of this MKII was Sherwood Green. We cannot confirm this is the exact colour, it does look darker, but either way it is in stunning condition throughout, with no noticeable chips to the front end.

There were a couple of chips to the lower section of the rear arches but these really are minimal.

Please see the images and videos to assess the condition for yourselves.

Glass and Trim

The windows look to be in good condition, with no obvious scratches to be seen on either the front, rear or side windows. The rear screen rubber has a small amount of perishing to it.

The chrome trim all around the Jaguar is in excellent condition with very little signs of tarnishing and pitting.


Class and luxury is the first thing that springs to mind when opening the door of the MKII Jaguar - the fit and finish of the interior is quite something else.

Seats and Carpets

The seats in the Jaguar have been finished in Suede Green leather, as it came from the factory. As you open the door the waft of leather hits you, which smells fantastic. The front and rear seats are in excellent condition and have been finished to an extremely high standard, everything from the leather material on the seats and door cards, to the wood capped door cards.

The carpets have been replaced and, again, all look to fit perfectly, and are edged in leather to match the seats. The headlining is also excellent and finished to the same high standard.

Into the boot and the Jaguar has a matching carpet to the rest of the interior. The spare wheel is present with a new tyre and sitting inside there is the original tool kit. Unfortunately no 'shooters' in here we're sorry!


A lovely Walnut Burr dashboard greets you as you look from the driver’s seat. It is in stunning condition, with no marks to be seen, just a deep glossy lacquered finish. The fascia is the same, which runs across to the glove box.

The Smiths instruments are in excellent condition and all working as they should to Phil's knowledge. Please see the interior gallery for more detailed shots.

Steering Wheel / Gear Stick

Sitting in the driver's seat you are faced with the lovely original spoke steering wheel, which shows no signs of any excessive wear.

The gear knob is also in good order with the 1-4 and R clearly seen, and the "Overdrive" indicator on the top of the steering column.


The lighter 3.4L block was said to be the pick of the bunch for cops and robbers alike.

Engine and Gearbox

Running as smooth as you like, the 3.4 litre sounds fantastic on tickover and whilst out on the road. It starts up at the first turn with no hesitation. The car has had a major service as detailed in the invoices in February 2022, and the engine was fully rebuilt in 2009. At that time, the 3.4 was also converted to happily run on unleaded fuel, along with electronic ignition to aid starting.

At the same time, it made sense to fit a clutch. The gear change is precise, there is a noise from the layshaft which is quite standard on an early gearbox, the oil changed as part of the service this year. As you can see from our mechanical review video, the gear change is nice and smooth, the Jag pulls well through all of the gears with no untoward noises coming from the engine or transmission.

Suspension and Brakes

Stopping the Jaguar nicely, are the 4 disc brakes which are working just as they should, bringing the heavy MKII to a halt quickly, straight and with no juddering through the pedal.

The suspension feels just right as you drive along the road. The ride is not too soft or too hard, just enough firmness to make you feel safe in the corners.

The Drive

Cruising along in the MKII Jaguar is certainly an enjoyable experience, and one which causes people to take a second look when they see this British icon hurtling down the road.

Electrics and Other

Everything in the car is reported to be working just as it should. The switchgear all looks to be in good order, with the lettering to the fascia panel all still legible.

History and Paperwork

Coming to market from 4 year ownership, and with a recent major service, if you're in the market for a manual Mk2, take a good look at this one.

This car has been kept in storage for most of the pandemic, and so Phil has had a local specialist give the car a thorough going over and major service in February 2022, coming to a cost of just over £4,000.

Always nice to see, the original owner’s handbook is present. There is a nice selection of invoices present for the new owner to sift through, some of which date back to 1996 during the restoration. Then a little more history in the way of 13 BP Lubrication Service Certificates, along with 11 Jaguar service maintenance vouchers, which is over 1 full book of stamps dating back as far as the first service in 1963.

We’ve done all our usual seller checks including photo ID, V5 and the vehicle is HPI clear.

As you can see, we go to great lengths to photograph and video the car in hi-resolution detail, so please sit back, have a cuppa and review everything to make a condition assessment for yourself. If there's anything you're unsure about, no matter how small, then please ask the owner in the comments area below before placing your bids.

Hi Phil, I notice the car is first registered in 1996, was it used abroad before that and is it eligible for Historic zero VED?
I look forward to hearing from you.
Kind regards, Ken.


The reserve meter hasn’t budged guys.


Hello Phil, if I am lucky enough to win this bid can the car be housed until mid August, I am overseas.


Hi Phil, please confirm the last mot or reason for not obtaining one.




Can you please get an mot test done please. Last expired in 2019 during lockdown.


Good morning Phillip, I notice you have no photos of the under carriage, rust problems perhaps?


Very sorry Phillip, just found the under carriage photos, amazing condition. David.


Hi Phil
Lovely car and I am interested in bidding. I can see invoices for the mechanical work done to the engine. Could you provide some information about the bodywork and interior restoration please?
