1961 For Sale

It's unusual to find a face-lifted car that's better looking than the car it was designed to replace but Jaguar managed this unusual feat, with the Mark 1 replacement.

Not many other cars can claim to have built a reputation in as many ways as the Mark 2 Jag has. From stints as a star car of television, a race car driven by the likes of Sir Stirling Moss, to an infamous bank robber's getaway vehicle of choice, it is perhaps one of the most iconic British cars of the 1960's and is remembered fondly by many.

Though a lot of Mk2s have fallen into disrepair, its lasting influence on enthusiasts has kept its fans at the front lines of preserving this bastion of British culture, keeping the remaining good ones from going extinct.

Without resorting to too many cliches in the process, Jaguar created the most iconic '60s sports saloon of them all and it's with the 3. 8-litre Mk2 - that Jaguar created a legend.
