Some time on or about September 1967 the 3.8 litre model was discontinued and the 2.4 and 3.4 litre Mark 2 cars were re-badged as the 240 and 340 respectively as gap-fillers until the XJ6 arrived in September 1968. The 240 and 340 models retained cost-saving downgrades that had appeared a year earlier in the Mark 2 series. Standard leather upholstery was replaced by Ambla, a leather-like synthetic material, and tufted carpet was used on the floor. The front fog lamps were replaced with circular vents and made optional for the UK market. The sales price was reduced to compete with the Rover 2000 TC.
This particular 340 benefits over the standard 340s with the addition of Mark 2 fog lights and a full tan leather interior fitted by Jaguar themselves complimenting the honey beige exterior featuring a rare full-length sunroof. The car itself is a genuine matching numbers vehicle that’s only covered 46,000 miles from new and been cherished its entire life by four previous owners whom have compiled a comprehensive history. Recent work includes an engine and overdrive rebuild, front suspension refurbishment that included the installation of a Harvey Bailey anti-roll bar and springs, addition of power steering, respray of the front of the car, refurbishment of all wheels and new tyres fitted, upgrade of all brakes using Zues components and the addition of a 123 distributor. With an MOT with no advisories the car runs and drives as well as it looks, an original handbook and complete original tool kit finish this car off beautifully. This car is a truly stunning usable classic and must be seen to be fully appreciated.
