OG Saloon: 1966 Jaguar S-Type 3.8 Mk II

I have to admit that I'm not 100% up-to-date on the market for mid 1960s Jag S-Types...but I can tell you without looking that getting a running/driving example for $4k in today's market of over-priced and over-hyped junk (looking at you Porsche 911) is a breath of fresh air.  Actually the air behind this thing will be smoggy cancer causing mud, but you get the drift.  Okay, I just looked it up -- Hagerty says a #4 fair condition version of this car is worth something around $18k, so this is a smashing deal. Find this 1966 Jaguar S-Type 3.8 Mk II offered for $4000 in South San Francisco, CA via craigslist. Tip from FuelTruck.

  1. Certainly been loved at some point. Wonder how much tinworm brittanicus it holds.

  2. If that sucker's solid, the shell alone is worth that. A reasonable project to drop at chebby 350 and a 4l80e into.
    The running 3.8 drivetrain is just icing on the cake. Kinda surprised that no one has pulled that original engine for an e-type restoration yet.

  3. If I were someone important and did red carpet events, this is something I'd roll up in.

  4. It's an S type therefore it is not a MK2.

    1. Right you are, @Gazzer. Not as iconic as the Mark 2, but still a screaming deal.
