1962 Jaguar MK2 3.8

1962 Jaguar MK2 3.8 sedan in exceptional original condition. Purchased new at British Motor Car Distributors in San Francisco Ca on January 12th 1962. This car moved to Prescott, AZ in the 70's but remained in the same family until 2001. It has never had any rust or body damage whatsoever. It was repainted once in 2001 in Jaguar Seafrost Metallic, a color change from the original Bronze color. I would consider the repaint average, not show quality. It does not have any chips or major scratches that I could find. All of the chrome and trim is in great condition with only minor flaws from age. The window frames are near perfect, like they were chromed last week...but they are original. The rear bumper has one small dent as shown in the pictures below. All of the weatherstripping in the car is still soft and fully intact. All of the glass is original and in excellent shape, but the windshield has some scratches and a some minor road rash but no big chips. The Leather interior is believed to be original and in very good shape for its age. All of the wood garnish moldings are very nice, but the lower dashboard has some crazing in the finish. Mechanically the car is very sound and performs very well. The 3.8 litre engine has excellent power and the automatic transmission shifts flawlessly. There is record of the transmission being overhauled in 1990. Less than 1000 miles ago the head was rebuilt and the fuel system was gone through at a cost of $3200.00(with receipts) All of the lights and accessories work fine, even the radio. The drivers side turn signal isnt working, we believe it to be a switch that I have not yet located a replacement for. All of the tires were just replaced with new Excelsior Racing 650-15's. This car retains all of its original owners manuals, warranty booklets, tool kit, license plate frames, and even the original window sticker from when it was sold new. in 2001 before the repaint the car was judged at a Jaguar Club of north America Concours event and scored 984 out of a possible 1000 points. Most of the deductions were from paint flaws which have now been remedied due to the repaint. (judging sheets included) A great Jaguar that is ready to be shown and enjoyed!
