Jaguar Mark 2 Restored

Seeing it all come together.

We’re all finished up with our restoration of this beautiful Jaguar MK2. This car came to us in pretty good shape, driving well, but just looking a bit tired. Time for a complete Mark 2 makeover! The car was completely stripped down and painted in the beautiful Royal Blue you see now. The engine has been fully rebuilt, the transmission converted from automatic to 4-speed with overdrive, all the wood has been refinished, and all the upholstery completely replaced and restored in a gorgeous light-tan.

You can catch up on our previous progress here.

The Jaguar MK2 is one of the most beautiful Jaguars ever built and one of the highest-quality cars they ever made. Lots of work goes into restoring one of these, but at the end of the day, it’s all worth it as you end up with a historic piece of automotive art. Over the years, we’ve repaired and restored quite a few MK2s and each project has been equally rewarding. Our fearless leader Peter Jurgens is himself the proud owner of an immaculate 1961 Mark 2.

The interior really came back to life!

A project like this takes the talents of many people who work here in-house as well as many others with whom we’ve worked and built reputations for years. We would like to sincerely thank Acme Autobody, Catron Coach Craft, Madera Concepts, Moss Motors, and XKs Unlimited for the great work and for providing quality parts and materials.
