1965 Jaguar MK2 3.8 Saloon


Recommended Posts

Hi Simon, and Welcome to the Club.


A 1965 Mk2 Saloon will not be cheap as there is some demand, and as it has been laid up for some time I guess that the restoration would also be expensive.


Wheeler Dealers restored a similar car a couple of years ago which you could get on You Tube.  Watching that will give you some idea of what problems you might encounter.


Let us know how you get on.

Like all cars it will be worth what you are willing to pay for it and what you believe you can get in return once in prime condition. The Mk.2 was an Icon in the Jaguar world and in my opinion still is up there with the best in style and elegance
