MORE INFORMATION: email info@krissmotors.com or call 646-535-7477.

One of the best examples of a Jaguar Mk2 (Mark II) in the world. Concours d’Elegance winner, but still a carefree daily driver if desired.

Download the revised Owner Manual specific to this car for complete specifications.

Complete ground-up restoration of every part, including an engine overhaul with electronic distributor, light weight aluminum flywheel, high torque starter, alternator upgrade, high output brake booster, spin-on oil filter, high performance spark plugs, new fuel system, new stainless exhaust, new bushings through out. Polished engine bay.

New leaf springs, differential overhaul, rebuilt front and rear suspension, completely new brake system with high performance calipers.

Tan leather new upholstery from the UK, new carpets, beautifully restored woodwork, new British Racing Green paint. New tires and wire wheels. Every interior detail better than original condition, including the center console.

All matching numbers, complete tool kit, restored boot. No rust whatsoever, sandblasted frame. Undercarriage is spotless.

Significant heater upgrade with electronic control that actually works. New entertainment unit fits in old radio slot with navigation, backup camera, hands-free phone, USB port in newspaper tray, and full bluetooth functionality. Halogen headlights, LED lighting, fog lights.

Lucas antique replica battery (looks like the old 6-volt!) with master cutoff switch, modified for negative ground, 12-volt system with totally new wiring and modern fuse/relay panel, restored gauges, horns, switches, dash. New wipers and window washing system. Every detail finished to exceptional quality. Must see to believe the quality in this amazing restoration.

Always garaged in a heated space, Boston area. Hundreds of photos available. Please, serious inquiries only.

It should have a 12V system. If the battery has fill caps, old period correct style.

When this Jaguar left the factory in October 1960 it was outfitted with a Lucas “King of the Road” GT9A battery featuring a row of six filler caps that were both dangerous (acid burns, for example) and subject to messy leaks. The replica battery has the six fill caps, but not operational, and it is a modern 12 volt battery inside the "faux" case. Sorry for the confusing reference to 6-volt batteries that look very similar.
