RetroMarques Ltd is pleased to offer for sale on behalf of the owner ‘OUL722F’, a stunning Jaguar S-Type 3.4 MOD saloon...

Developed by Jaguar as a more sophisticated and luxurious option to the Jaguar Mark 2, with the Mark 2’s live rear axle replaced by a system similar to the Mark X’s independent rear suspension and longer bodywork yet retaining the reputable in-line 6-cylinder engine, now on twin carbs.

The Mark 2 continued alongside the S-Type and Mark X initially and just under 10,000 3.4-litre cars were produced.

OUL 722F is an original Home Market RHD car, first registered on 31 July 1967 to a Mr Lucas in London and has been with the present, Jaguar-enthusiast owner for nigh-on 10 years.

Details as follows:

  • Chassis No: 1B 3539 DN
  • Engine No: 7B97448

Specification/history:

  • Watjag power steering upgrade (discrete but works very well with nice handling/feel
  • Jaguar 420 beam steering box (rebuilt by Kiley-Clinton)
  • Engine rebuild in mid-90s (good oil pressure, strong, no smoke)
  • Engine out gearbox and overdrive rebuild in 2006 (at 70263mi)
  • Alloy radiator and Kenlowe fan
  • MWS Chrome spoked wheels, Vredestein Classic tyres and Jaguar spinners
  • Dunlop discs all round
  • Coombs-style springs and upgraded Koni shocks
  • Polybushed wishbones and anti-roll bar
  • Zircotec heat-treated manifold
  • ‘Double S’ stainless steel exhaust (lifetime guarantee)
  • As-new carpets with overmats in the front
  • Re-finished walnut veneer dash and finishers
  • Moto-Lita alloy and wood rimmed wheel
  • MoT test to July 2015

A comprehensive history file accompanies OUL722F, with MoT certificates, invoices, original green log book and Classic Car Weekly test drive of this car (dated May 2002)!

As Autosport reported, the S-type was to prove faster across country than the Mark 2, with better cornering, better traction and a smoother ride for the rear passengers!

Whether you seek a grand tourer or sports coupe, the S-Type offers both, unusually, and with only circa 90 such Jaguars left on the road this is quite a rare model. With so much having been spent sensibly upgrading it and a good history file, surely this must be one of the nicest and most usable S-Types available today.

Price: SOLD
