Offered for sale a 1962 MKII Jaguar with matching numbers car that has been restored and shown in Jaguar Concours. It was restored from a low miles rust-free car by a very particular and knowledgeable restorer. This car is absolutely stunning in person. The excellent visuals are matched by the near flawless interior. The interior first impresses with the nice aroma of real leather. It then completes its seduction with an exacting fit and finish of all the burled woodwork and interior components. This is a car from another era, where quality of materials was high and the labor and skill needed to fit them was even higher. The car has scored 99+ points when shown. This car has been driven to Jaguar events as the current owner likes to use his cars. To make the car more responsive, he had us fit a steering rack to the car. We also installed five correctly sized new radial tires, and did a full service including complete tune up. This made the car a reliable driver. Since the major service in 2008, it has had about 2000 trouble free miles on it. Copies of the judging sheets are available. Show it or drive it and enjoy it.
