Mk 2 Jaguar Restoration

practical CLASSICS & car restorer

"Following the restoration of 'KEX' was a fascinating exercise, particularly for me as a Jaguar enthusiast. On this typically rusty old Mk 2 we saw all the type's usual faults put right and a gleaming - but still very original - vehicle emerge at the end of it. The restored car also proved to me how delightful a properly rebuilt Mk 2 still is to drive with its ample performance and still-impressive ride and refinement.

As we explain in the episodes which follow, the intention was not to produce a totally new car rather one which performed like new but which retained the ambience of the original Browns Lane product. Essentially this meant such as restoring the leather upholstery instead of replacing it - not only cheaper but more authentic! Wire wheels were fitted because many owners like to do this and we felt that to explain the procedure would be useful. But they don't exactly mar the car's looks!" (Introduction by Paul Skilleter)
