Description

1968 Jaguar 2.4 / 240

The vendor has kindly supplied the following:

I have owned the car for over 20 years, I used it for three years, to go to shows, work and shopping, with plenty of space both inside the car and in the boot.

I really enjoyed using her but life got in the way so the car ended parked in the garage for 17 years! It was not until I retired that I had some time to work on the car. I replaced plugs and points, cleaned and rebuilt the carb, new battery, and after a few attempts, she roared into life back, and I say roar because she really does sound beautiful. Callipers were removed and new seals put in, and I got her out of the garage for the first time in years. Clutch is a bit heavy but still drove around block well. She is complete with a few extra spares in the boot, and original steel spats are in the boot plus some fibreglass copies and air box.
Unfortunately she now has to go and deserves a good home where she will be restored to her former glory by someone with more energy than me!
With 63,000 miles on the clock and three former keepers, stainless steel exhaust, heritage certificate and loads of previous bills and service book plus workshop and maintenance manuals. She starts and sounds well.
