1961 JAGUAR MARK II. #P213497DN. (Stock #4325.) The MK II Jaguar is an amazingly handsome midsize 4-door sedan built between 1959 and 1967. Jaguar produced this model with the luxury of the larger Jaguar sedans combined with the performance of the sports car Jaguars–in a sedan sized between the other two models. The Jaguar’s luxurious interior offered leather seats and surrounded the occupants with polished walnut facia and interior trim. Two folding beverage trays in the rear compartment matched the interior trim. All were powered by a twin-cam, carbureted 6-cylinder engine, offered in 2.4, 3.4 and 3.8 litre displacement choices and the choice of an automatic or manual transmission. The ultimate for performance was, of course, the 3.8 litre, twin carburetor engine with a 4-speed floor-shift transmission fitted with the optional 5th-gear overdrive unit. Top speed for the car equipped with the higher-performance equipment is 125 miles per hour–this is a 62 year old sedan! Optional 4-wheel power disc brakes were added to the performance and safety aspect of the car. In fact, Jaguar included a little red safety triangle to the rear bumper of the MK II’s fitted with the disc brake option to warn following drivers that the car could probably stop much quicker than other cars, therefore, caution should be used following one so-optioned. Power steering was also available as an option, as were chrome “knock-off” wire wheels–identical to those on the Jaguar sports cars. Our car is equipped with the ultimate combination of accessories: 3.8 litre engine, 4-speed floor-mounted transmission with electric overdrive, 4-wheel power disc brakes, power steering, chrome wire wheels, the rare Blaupunkt AM/FM/SW radio and even air conditioning. We purchased this quite rare and very desirable Jaguar in 1990 and sold it to a local many-time customer who barely drove the car over the next 30 years, but serviced it regularly with fluid changes, new batteries, a new brake system, etc. In 2020, we sold the car, again locally, to an enthusiast who had the car stripped and painted in an original Jaguar color of Carmen Red, the extensive interior wood refinished, new chrome wire wheels with new radial tires installed and had the mechanicals fully serviced. The original owner’s manual accompanies the car. 81,768 miles. $52,000.
