Jaguar MK2 2.4 - 6737PE
The phrase ‘unique’ is often over used in the classic car world we enjoy. However I am inclined to use it in the case of this car. Presented for sale for the first time since John Coombs personally handed over the keys to this cars one and only user in November 1961.
A time warp car presented with a most comprehensive history including the original service book, warranty and indeed ‘RAC Running In’ sticker. I personally love the John Coombs tax disc holder. I have never seen one before. I also love the complete tool kit. All original and in good order. 2 files of history in total come with this car and it all makes a fascinating read.
The period history is superb and valuable. However, the recent history details nearly £40k of structural and mechanical work to ensure this car presents in perfect structural and mechanical order. The underside of the car is literally faultless and perfect. Sitting on chrome wire wheels and with lovely chrome the car looks beautiful, purposeful and ready for that 4 up trip to Goodwood Revival.
The engine and drive train are excellent. Don’t think the 2.4 litre engine is slow. It isn’t and the car spirits you along to the speed limit plenty quick enough and cruises along at 80mph effortlessly with overdrive engaged
Inside the cabin the original radio works as does everything else. The suede green leather is patinated to perfection and the overall cabin feel is one of luxury and history. It’s actually quite emotional sitting in a one driver car. You can sense the history and love cherished on this car and indeed the responsibility as the present custodian.
Now the car is ready to provide endless pleasure to a new custodian
