1961 Jaguar Mk2 Additional Info:

Up for auction is a “Barn Fresh” 1961 Jaguar Mk 2, 3.8. This particular car was owned by a Jaguar nut that once had 26 Jaguars! The owner past away 10+ years ago and everything went into a family trust. Most of the good cars were sold off except for the 4 door “orphan” sedans. The family was going to have them crushed and I made an offer to buy all 14 of them, haul them to my shop, loosely assemble them and sparkle them up. My intentions are to sell them as-is and not restore them unless someone wants it restored and I can do that at my shop www.catzauto.com. This particular car was purchased in 1998. The doors, frame, fenders, hood, boot are solid, as shown along with all the other sheet metal parts and everything fits very nicely. There are some minor rust spots that I have photographed which are mostly on the removable/replacable rear fender spats. The engine number matches the data plate. The engine seems all intact and turned over by hand but I did not try and start it. The oil inside was clean with no water and there was antifreeze in the block lower section so I do not think the block is cracked from freezing. The wood is salvageable and can be refinished as-is. The automatic transmission also has cruise control! This is a very straight salvageable unmolested Jaguar Mk 2 with the very desirable 3.8 engine that does not deserve to be crushed. I believe all parts are there with the exception of the air cleaner bottom pan for which there is 1 on EBay for $27.00. It is not too often that I find cars that haven’t been parted out or rusted away. It will make a nice project for someone as-is and being auctioned at no reserve. Found in the car is a complete photo book showing how the car was restored in 1977 and included a strip to bare metal paint job and engine rebuild with all receipts included in the sale. This car has a clear Ohio title in the seller's name and will be sold with a bill of sale from a registered dealer’s license from Ohio. This car has no warranty and no returns.
