The 2.4 made £2100 , and come with V8 parts as well , it was in Scotland !
A couple of interesting youtube videos titled:-
- ‘Convertible Red 1958 Jaguar MK1’
- ‘Videos of Jaguar MK11s at Royal Windsor Jaguar Festival’
About 6 mins into this video there is a very interesting MK2 with flared wheel arches.
Being an ‘ancient’ I have not mastered the art of directing you to the sites but I can appreciate the work that people put into their projects.
It would be interesting to know if the MK1 as a 2 door hardtop would have been stiff enough to keep the original unibody.
Hope you can find the sites.
Is this it Bill ,
Yes. Amazing how quickly you found them. Many thanks.
Years ago I would buy Hot Rod magazines and look at the work people would put into creating their chopped and channeled cars. I still get a kick out of seeing some grey hair out for a spin in his pet.
I have to get back at my project.
That chop job is…oddly nice!!
Not a fan of big arches, Roof chops etc, Mk2’s look perfect standard or with subtle changes like ‘coombes’ style rear spats/ Arch profile IMO.
AGREED:a much more conforming bubble flare would have looked better.

Here is my father’s 1963 MK2 in 1964. He gave it to me in1976 and I owned it until 1985. Together we put 230,000+ miles on it!
You might check the forum vin lists and see who owns it now.
Take out to the ball game…take me out for a ride (in a mk2)…take me for a ride in the country…(where)
I can dream can i not
Not a MK2 , but close !!
Nice bit of Photoshop as there is not a scratch on the front end!
It’s a genuine picture - some form of civic art somewhere - you can see the supporting steels holding the car.
looks like the same pic look at the tree in both pics
My 1959 MK2 3.8 - The first 3.8 built and originally allocated to Claude Baily.
The car was used for engine development work until at least 1961.
