Fresh from single-family ownership, the 1967 Jaguar Mark II 3.4 saloon offered here represents an outstanding opportunity to experience the golden age of Jaguar motoring. A popular development of the Mark II line, the sedan is powered by a twin-camshaft, 3.4-liter six-cylinder XK engine which developed some 210 horsepower. A highly capable five-passenger sedan in period, it remains an enjoyable machine to drive even today. The Jaguar is fitted with four-wheel disc brakes, radial tires and power steering with an adjustable telescoping Bakelite steering wheel, making it an agile model with great road feel—an engaging experience for any driver.

Like many other special automobiles, this car started out in a more mundane role as a commuter car. The original owner happened to work for IBM and the car retains the original IBM parking permit sticker from the late 1960s. Once retired from daily use, the family repurposed the car to be used exclusively on weekends for family outings, ensuring that it was always garage-kept and well maintained. Later, in the 1990s, the car was passed along to the original owner’s daughter, who had it mechanically and cosmetically recommissioned, as documented with a file of receipts and invoices. Today, the black-on-black livery with exceptional walnut trim presents in beautiful, as-driven condition, underlining the quality of the work completed more than 20 years ago.

Recently serviced and detailed, this Jaguar is offered here for sale for the first time since new. It is fully ready for further adventures. It retains an original full tool set, two sets of keys, full size spare, and a selection of books, manuals, and receipts confirming the work completed by the original owner’s daughter. It also includes the original and functional Becker AM/FM radio. With supple leather seats, a beautiful wood dash, and full instrumentation, it is an ideal choice for regional shows or touring events, or for a return to the pampered life as a fair-weather cruiser for the family. This Jaguar represents a chance to own legendary, fully appointed Jaguar saloon for a relatively modest investment.
