Dramatic increases in the values of the Mark I and Mark II family have stimulated renewed interest in these most prized of all Jaguar saloons. Many examples have been rejuvenated by professional restorers and mechanically minded owners, but how many of these cars boast the completely original and authentic specification which the most discerning enthusiasts now demand? The information needed to determine how a restored car should look and what parts it should contain can be hard to find, but now help is at hand for all owners, restorers and enthusiasts in Original Jaguar MkI/MkII. Drawing from factory records, parts books, catalogs and service bulletins, as well as the accumulated knowledge of the author and respected Jaguar restorers, this book provides the evidence of what constitutes an authentic Jaguar Mark II. More than 150 color photographs show every inch of our eight carefully selected cars. Seven of these have been preserved in remarkably original condition; the other has been restored with fastidious attention to originality. From 2.4-liter Mark I to Daimler V8 250, every permutation of specification is covered in superb detail.
