Jaguar Sedan 3.4 (Mark 1) and 3.8 (Mark 2) Service and Repair

Motorcars Ltd was founded in 1972 right in the middle of the British car hey-day…. people were actually driving these cars to work every day… and when we started, we quickly realized that the Jaguar 3.4’s and 3.8’s needed routine maintenance along with the other British classics we were servicing. It was a pretty crazy time – we performed full restorations on MGTC’s and XK120’s and maintained daily drivers of the same vintage – at one point, we had over 12 full restorations in progress!

Today, Motorcars Ltd retains a special place in our shop for the mechanical service, repair and maintenance (no, we no longer do full restorations) for the driven British Classic Cars…from Classic Jaguars, MG “T” Series, MGB, TR6, XKE, Austin Healey, Bug Eye Sprites, MGA… we keep them all on the road.

A Closer Look At The Jaguar 3.4 (Mark 1) and 3.8 (Mark 2) Models

Mark 1

The Jaguar Mark 1 is a British saloon car produced by Jaguar between 1955 and 1959. The car was powered by the 2.4 Litre engine with a 3.4 Litre motor being added in 1957. Jaguar’s new 2.4 and 3.4 introduced a modern style and a new level of performance to this respectable company.

Mark 2: Jaguar XK140

The Jaguar Mark 2 is a medium-sized saloon car built from late 1959 to 1967. The 2.4 and 3.4 Litre engines stayed adding the 3.8 Litre XK engine. The Mark 2 was re-engineered above the waistline, including body changes, suspension changes and 4 wheel disc brakes.

Between 1967 through 1969 the Mark 2 was rebadged with the 2.4 Litre now being the 240 and the 3.4 Litre now the 340.
Motorcars Ltd takes great pride in keeping the the Jaguar Mark 1 and the Jaguar Mark 2 sedans on the road. Motorcars Ltd offers maintenance, repair and service on the 3.4, 3.8 and 3.8S sedans.
