eBay watch: 1960s Jaguar Mk II 240 car


The car of choice for TV villains in the '60s and '70s, this Jaguar Mk II 240 is both a stylish and a speedy number, as well as being up for sale on eBay right now.

This particular example dates back to 1968, with 42,000 miles showing on the clock from the two previous owners. The seller can't confirm if that's genuine, but judging by the low number of owners and the condition, it might well be.


It packs a 2,400cc engine, said to be capable of over 100mph and is in a 'Cotswold Beige' colour, matched up with the original black vinyl interior and original dash and dials. As for driving, according to the seller, the car 'starts and drives exactly as it should and is a pleasure to drive'. Ready to go in short. Although there might be some work to be done on the paint in time.

Want it? Not the cheapest car at around £8,995, but a head-turner, that's for sure. Lots more detail and images on the listing.
