Additional description from above auction:
The vendor states that this is a very early example, (638th made) of a 3.8 Mk2 which has recessed sun visors, and even more unusually a pendant throttle pedal. The vendor has owned the car for more than fifty years and it appears only to have had three, possibly four owners in total.
It is finished in the correct British Racing Green, with Suede Green leather. The car sits on the correct body colour wire wheels and has the Borg-Warner three speed with hold, automatic transmission. It also has the very desirable power steering option, and in 2007 had a VSE engine re-build.
The car was featured in the Jaguar Drivers Club magazine in the late 1990s following a run to Cognac, when it also appeared on French TV. The car comes complete with a very comprehensive history and has the original buff log book, and service invoices.

Car to return to auction 5/21
Ascot Racecourse May 15th 2021
Lot 229 - 1960 Jaguar Mk. II (3.8 litre)
Registration SPN 612 Chassis Number 201438BW Engine Number LA64808 Estimate £23,000 - £29,000
A donor body is supplied which has been fully restored
History dating back to 1962
Originally registered on 19th August 1960 this early Jaguar Mk. II has an interesting history dating back to 1962 and still bears its original registration number. Incorporated in the history is when the owner in 1969 (he purchased the car in 1962) took a photograph of the odometer as it clocked up 210,000 miles. The Jaguar whilst all complete is in need of restoration. However included in the sale is a Jaguar Mk. II body that has been fully restored to a very high standard. The intention by the vendor being that he would restore SPN 612 using the donor body, however as is often the case, a change in circumstances means this is unlikely to happen, he has therefore put the project up for sale. As owners of these iconic vehicles will know, parts are readily available through the various owners’ clubs and advice is easy to call upon. These cars are mechanically basic and reliable, the end result of this project should be a Jaguar Mk. II 3.8 that can be enjoyed for many more years to come.
