Jaguar Mark 1 & 2 : A Celebration of Jaguar's Classic Sporting Saloons

The compact Jaguar saloons of the 1950s and 1960s were some of the most popular performance cars of their day, became a legend in their own time, and now are considered one of the most collectable of classics.
In this fascinating, extensively illustrated book, Nigel Thorley describes the year by year history and development of the Jaguar Mark 1 and Mark 2 models, from the original design concept in the early 1950s, through to the final variants produced at the end of the 1960s.
The author unearths many anecdotes and curiosities along the way, as well as covering the main body of evolution, to become the most popular and profitable models in the Jaguar range for many years.

With a fabulous collection of period and specially commissioned photographs, this publication represents a feast of valuable information for anyone interested in general motoring history, Jaguar specific information, as well as for enthusiasts and owners of these fine cars.
Out of print for some years, this popular book is now available again from Veloce as part of their Classic Reprint series.

Factory-Original Jaguar Mk I & Mk II - Originaly guide including 240, 340, S-Type, 420, Daimler V8 and Sovereign

Jaguar founder Sir William Lyons had a terrific hit on his hands when he launched the 'compact' 2.4 Litre sports saloon in 1956. Motorists loved it, and those wanting more thrills were soon offered the 'hot' 120mph 3.4 Litre a year later.
Both were replaced in 1960 by the Mark II models, which added a 3.8 Litre, and from there the range was developed and expanded with the long-booted S-Type of 1964, the 4.2 Litre 420 of 1967, and the final 240/340 models of 1968. Alongside there were the Daimler V8 and Sovereign models.

The success of this family of cars can be attributed to Lyons's faultless instinct for what buyers wanted and his unerring eye when it came to styling his cars. And of course there was the fabulous six-cylinder XK engine which powered all Jaguars from 1948 through to 1985, with the equally inspired V8 in the Daimler.

All these cars have enjoyed an exalted classic status for years, and the matter of originality has become more and more important to owners and prospective owners today.
Here Nigel Thorley, the unrivaled expert on the cars who has been writing about them for more than 30 years, provides all the information that can be expected from books in the acclaimed Factory-Original series.
Model by model, with hundreds of specially commissioned colour photographs of outstanding examples of the cars, he gives all the details of correct original factory specifications and equipment in all departments, right down to the tool kit.

Jaguar Mark 1 & 2: Alle Modelle (1955-1969) inklusive Daimler 2.5 Litre V8 - Praxisratgeber Klassikerkauf

Der von Jaguar-Gründer William Lyons entworfene und 1955 präsentierte Mark 1 leitete eine neue Ära in der Firmengeschichte ein: Die erste kleine Jaguar-Limousine erwies sich nicht nur als Verkaufserfolg, Siege im Motorsport unterstrichen den sportlichen Charakter und erschlossen neue Käuferkreise.
Mit dem Nachfolger Mark 2, der ab 1959 in den Verkaufsräumen der Händler stand, bewies Jaguar ebenfalls ein glückliches Händchen, denn für den technisch und optisch überarbeiteten Familiensportwagen gab es zeitweise lange Wartelisten.
Dank der sehr guten Ersatzteilsituation und der überschaubaren Technik sind Vertreter dieser Jaguar-Baureihen heutzutage beliebte Einsteigermodelle ins Oldtimer-Hobby.

Jaguar-Experte Nigel Thorley hat für den vorliegenden Ratgeber die wichtigsten und hilfreichsten Insiderinformationen für alle Mark 1 & 2 sowie den Daimler 2.5 Litre V8 der Baujahre 1955 bis 1969 zusammengestellt.
Wie gewohnt präsentiert sich dieser Band als kompakter Ratgeber und unverzichtbares Hilfsmittel bei der Beurteilung des Zustandes eines zum Verkauf stehenden Mark-1- oder Mark-2-Exemplars. Hier findet jeder Interessent wichtige Tipps, worauf er beim Kauf achten muss, um nicht später eine böse überraschung zu erleben. Außerdem ergänzt ein ausführlicher Teil mit wichtigen Adressen und Ansprechpartnern diesen wertvollen Begleiter.
