The Jaguar Mk.II was a medium size saloon built from 1959 to 1967 as a successor to the 2.4 and 3.4 models, manufactured between 1957 and 1959. The Mk.II was handsome, powerful and a good handling saloon which was offered with a choice of three six cylinder twin cam engines; 2.4 litre, 3.4 litre or 3.8 litre.
After the appreciation of the MK.I, Jaguar’s successor was well received making a good car even better. Similar in appearance, but with a bigger glass area, it boasted a wider track to improve road holding together with minor front suspension changes to reduce body roll and all-round disc rather than drum brakes.
The 210bhp 3.4 litre engine variant proved to be the most popular, offering the best compromise between performance and economy. Naturally, the performance was excellent and the Mk.II has enjoyed great success on track and can still be a very competitive historic race car. Raced by all the top drivers of the day including Graham Hill, Roy Salvadori and Michael Parkes, the Mk.II has scored victories throughout saloon car races in the sixties and was also raced across Europe in the Tour De France and Monte Carlo rally. The car gained a reputation as a capable ‘getaway car’ among the criminal underworld. It had seating for five adults and in 3.8 litre specification could outrun almost any other car on the road. Quite naturally, the Jaguar Mk.II also received acclaim amongst law enforcement forces too.

"A quick line to say thank you so much from Danielle and myself for the so professional wedding car run you provided us with last Friday. The car was perfect and so subtle, it simply was the best vehicle for us and how we like to do things. You were professional, sociable and formal all at the right times, we both thought your act could not be bettered! As a surprise I laid on a display routine from the Grace Spitfire which certainly made everyone look skywards for 15 mins! A few photos of the wedding and again thanks from all of us...... All the very best."
"I just wanted to say thank you so much for all your help on my wedding day! Thank you for getting me, my father and the photographer safely to the church and being such a calming presence. Thank you also for helping me with my veil as all my bridesmaids were no where to be seen! Very kind of you! Your car was an absolute dream and I felt like a princess/queen in it, it also looks beautiful in the photos!! I hope you enjoyed it too. Thank you again for everything, I am so grateful. I hope you have a lovely rest of summer!"
"Thank you so much for being with us on our special day. We are so pleased you could share every minute of it from start to finish, including the car!

"Just a quick note to say THANK YOU so much for taking my Dad and I to Marylebone Town Hall and then Ben and I onto the Hawksmoor for our wedding. We all loved the car (especially Dad!) and it really helped to make the day special and add to the excitement. Our day was incredible, one full of many happy memories! We still can't believe how incredible the weather was then! We are just back from our honeymoon and back to earth with a bang! Taking some serious readjusting! Thank you for all of your help. It was amazing working with you, so thank you! You helped to make it all run smoothly Once all the pictures are in we will share any pictures they took of the car."

"Before we jet off on our honeymoon, we just wanted to say the biggest thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all playing a part in giving us the best day of our lives. Yesterday could not have been more perfect and it was all down to you guys. We’ll be in touch separately too, but in the mayhem of packing for a flight first thing tmw morning, it might not be for a few weeks! Thank you so much all - smiling from ear to ear!"
