Mighty motor

If you had to come up with the quintessential sixties Brit luxury bomber, you could do worse than pic a MkII Jaguar.

It was relatively short-lived compared to legends such as XJ6, but it was nevertheless an important car for the company. Taking the MkI platform, it presented a more modern sixties look, with a much greater glass area.

More importantly, it continued the brand's reputation for fast, well-handling cars. Or 'grace, space and pace' as the ad campaign of the day would have it.

Initially three engines were offered – inline sixes at 2.5, 3.4 and 3.8lt. The big six was capable of punting the car down the road at a max 200km/h.

This example, called Bluebell, is with John Conroy in Brisbane and claims to be in good shape with original paint. It's a 3.8 auto and is on the market at $49,990.
