Jaguar Saloons 1951-86 - 2018 Market Review
Jaguar S Type

Asking prices for Mark2 Jaguars span a very wide range (sub-$10,000 to $80,000+) with the strongest demand being for bigger-engined examples.

When spending serious money on a car that in years gone might have been altered to appear more desirable than it was, obtaining expert verification is essential. If you do find an excellent, genuine 3.8 manual/overdrive it should be worth $50,000 or more.

Also gaining traction with canny buyers are Series 1 XJ6s; especially 4.2-litre cars with genuine Jaguar manual transmissions which can reach $30,000.

Mark VII-IX models from the 1950s in restored condition will normally be worth more than $20,000 and the once-ignored Mark X is building a following too.

Mark VII-IX $17,165 [3]

Mark 2 2.4 $18,420 [8]

Mark 2 3.4 $27,880 [11]

Mark 2 3.8 $41,310 [17]
