1967 Jaguar 340 MK2
The Jaguar Mark 2 is a medium sized saloon car built from late 1959 to 1967 by Jaguar in Coventry, England. The Mark 2 was a fast and capable saloon in line with Sir William Lyons' 1950s advertising slogan: Grace ... Space ... Pace. Sometime on or about September 1967 the 2.4 liter and 3.4 liter Mark 2 cars were rebadged as the 240 and 340 respectively. Jaguar Chief Archivist, in a letter dated 9 October 2009, he stated the theory that "some of these 1967 Mark II lite cars sold in the USA were rebadged here, to fall into line with the new model nomenclature introduced by Jaguar in late 1967." The 3.8 litre model was discontinued. The 240 and 340 were interim models intended to fill the gap until the introduction of the XJ6 in September 1968. The 340 was discontinued on the introduction of the XJ6 but the 240 continued as a budget priced model until April 1969.
This very lovely Jaguar 340 has documented history back to when new. There is a photo of ownership history included in the photos below. It has been nicely restored to local show condition. The indigo paint finish is near flawless and body gaps excellent. Wood dash and interior components are also excellent as is chrome trim. The car starts instantly and drives as nearly a new automobile might. The motor is a non-matching number 3.8 liter six cylinder which delivers slightly more horsepower than the original 3.4. The Borg warner automatic transmission does a good job for the sensible touring and shifts as it should. There are two sets of rear wheel spats, one version covers more wheel than the optional sport style. There is also a complete original tool kit & jack along with numerous manuals, pamphlets, and brochures. The original papers include English tax receipts, MOTS, service receipts. This is one of the most interesting MK's we have ever run across. It is truly a wonderful car to own and enjoy the experience of driving a classic British automobile.
