In April of 1963, as the Jaguar Mk II featured here was rolling down the production line at Browns Lane, the cream of British saloon car drivers were lining up on the grid at Goodwood prior to the start of the St. Mary's Trophy, a round of the 1963 British Saloon Car Championship. 3.8 Mk IIs filled the top seven places on the entry list and a contemporary report from Autosport reads; "Mike Salmon led the pack away from the start in his Jaguar and held the lead for the whole of the first lap ahead of Graham Hill, Roy Salvadori, Peter Dodd, Bill Aston and Jeff Sparrow in similar cars. On lap 2 Hill took the lead and Sparrow spun at Lavant and Jack Sears nipped into sixth spot chased by Jimmy Blumer. Salvadori passed Salmon on lap 4 and followed Hill closely for the rest of the race". Famous as these cars are, none have had the length of competition career as Graeme Dodds' venerable example offered for sale today. This particular example has enjoyed a long and successful racing career in the hands ofits gentleman driver/owner spanning over 20 years! The car has competed throughout this time in a variety of championships including JEC, HSCC Historic Roadsports, and more recently in the Jaguar Heritage Challenge series. As well as numerous class wins and a number of outright wins this remarkable car has laid claim to a few championships and is possibly the 'winningest' classic Jaguar racer in recent years.It was initially built from a solid donor car with the intention of producing a competitive and reliable MkII to be used at club level with the occasional foray to Spa and Pau, and no expense was spared in the build. Fibreglass panels were used for the bonnet, boot lid and some of the external trim such as bumpers and the interior was partly stripped and prepared for racing. Some club championships require a certain amount of the original trim to remain and this was taken into consideration. A full cage is fitted as well as a Tilton Pedal arrangement and a Smiths electronic rev counter mated toan Armtech Speedshift device. Further details of the interior spec, harness, extinguishers etc. will be supplied shortly. The suspension, brakes and running gear have all been quietly developed over the years and full details of all of this will be available shortly.Pete Lander of Sigma Engineering has long been regarded as the 'Guru' when it comes to the 3.8-litre XK engines and it's one of his creations that powers this car with its remarkable power output fed through an equally well-built race specification Pete Lander gearbox and back axle. Our vendor is currently travelling and full details of the engine's spec and rebuild history will be available when he returns.This car is a well-known example throughout the UK racing scene and the current owner has enjoyed much success, many battles and races including a support race at the British Grand Prix. However, he and his son have had an excellent couple of seasons in the Jaguar Classic Challenge in their glorious E-Type and he now feels its timeto let the MkII go and for a new owner to pick up the mantle and continue its illustrious racing career.
