Arriving in 1963, the S-Type was an evolution of the Mk II; stylistically, it could have been described as a combination of the Mk II and the newly-released Mk X, but with updated mechanics, Jaguar had a more developed sporting saloon that inherited some of its innovations from other Jaguar models. A variation of the Mk X’s independent rear suspension featured in the model, and power was supplied by a twin-carburettor version of the XK 3.4 or 3.8 engine.

This 3.4 S-Type was in the previous ownership for thirteen years and with a total of just five custodians to date, this is a genuine and very original example. Described by its owner as being good in most departments, the S-Type’s bodywork was resprayed about twenty years ago and has lasted well; the vendor has honestly pointed out that one quarter bumper has an inconsiderable loss of chrome and the grille has slight damage, but the original red leather upholstery is difficult to fault, and the dashboard and cappings are described as being very nice. All instrumentation is in working order and most of the original tool kit is present. The Jaguar is equipped with power steering and an electric aerial, and the engine, manual overdrive gearbox, differential and braking system have no known faults. Interestingly, JKN 999E has been kept as original as possible, apart from having an upgraded braking system to Coopercraft that was carried out during a recent brake overhaul. The motor car has clearly been well-cared for throughout its life and is only reluctantly available now due to the vendor’s other hobby, his drove of donkeys!

The vast history file accompanying the S-Type includes a factory service manual, the original sales brochure, a service voucher book, a sales and service dealers list, old road tax discs and MOT test certificates, data, Jaguar Driver’s Club and Britax Safety Belts information, the RF60 registration books and two V5C registration certificates.
