This fabulous driving MKII 3.4 Jaguar was first registered on the 18th of June 1964. BDG 241B was supplied new in Gloucestershire and the car still retains its original green logbook. The MKII is in original colours, Opalescent silver grey with delightfully aged and original blue leather. The MKII spent many years with its first owner before passing through the family where by the 1980's it was undergoing some restoration work. Photographs and documentation relating to this are with the comprehensive history file that accompanies the car.
We first sold this MKII in 2010, taking it in as part of a lovely collection that included a very early E-Type Series One FHC, Triumph Stag, MGB and Jaguar MKV. The car had been with its Holmfirth based owner since August 2005 and had covered 12,000 trouble free miles. The MKII had been a truly fabulous car to own and had proven to be totally reliable and dependable. Maintenance to the highest of standards had ensured it remained a top class driving car and invoices and receipts are present with the history. For many summer weekends this example had been used for family journeys from West Yorkshire to the North East, Lake District and Norfolk. We soon sold the car to one of our regular customers in Gateshead who has regularly toured in the North East of England and the came back to us in 2015 and sold to a customer in Essex who has enjoyed three years of perfect ownership having spent over £3,000 on an EZ power assisted steering kit on intiial purchase.
BDG 241B is a particularly nice car to drive and we would expect the recorded mileage of 89000 is likely to be correct. It has a superb ride, a fantastic strong, reliable engine holding very good oil pressure and there are no knocks or rattles evident. The all syncromesh manual gearbox changes up and down smoothly, the overdrive works correctly and the car is quiet, comfortable and effortless to drive. The MKII handles well and brakes are efficient.
This MKII retains delightful largely original upholstery that clearly indicates this has never been a car left to deterioate. The original Blue leather has beautifully aged and has a lovely patina, the headlining and door cards are original and whilst carpets are not original, they were replaced many years ago. The woodwork has been re-veneered and polished and some stage and look superb and the engine bay and boot look smart with a nice feel of originality. Over four years ago the Jaguar was subject of a re-paint that involved removal of windscreens and fitting all new rubbers. The 20 year old paint had faded and the result of the more recent paintwork is a high quality, stunning finish. The bodywork is in excellent order with superb, straight panels, doors close correctly and the underside is excellent with no corrosion issues. The underside is remarkably original and has been well maintained and regularly waxoyled. The generally original shell is remarkable and finding such an honest, largely original MKII would be difficult.
