1963 Jaguar MK II, 3.8 litre. Registration number 1715 TU. Chassis number 231114BW. Engine number LC 7260-8.
Jaguar replaced the Mk 1 in October 1959 with the Mk 2, it was closely related, but heavily revised; slimmer windscreen pillars and deeper side windows enlarged the glass area. The removal of the rear wheel spats allowed the rear track to be widened, a move which increased roll resistance and stability. Otherwise, the running gear remained much the same as before, with Dunlop servo-assisted disc brakes on all four wheels. A redesigned dashboard with speedometer and rev-counter and the six toggle switches and four minor gauges grouped centrally, established Jaguar's layout for years to come.
The MK II 3.8 has 220bhp and was the top of the range engine.
TU was restored in the 1990's and the speedo now reads 14,631, possibly what it has travelled since then. It has recently had the carbs serviced and is running but needs recommissioning as the brakes are binding from lack of use. Originally an automatic it has been changed to manual, electronic ignition is fitted, as are inertia seat belts. The interior was restored at this time also and has now mellowed well.
