1964 Jaguar 3.8 MKII

An up-date on the 1964 3.8 MKII Browns Lane Jaguar I acquired in 2015 (see the arrival and progress pics here). Oxford Blue, assembled in Coventry, England, it is one of the few original Browns Lane cars with matching numbers in South Africa. It has taken one and a half years to restore and six months to get it registered on the Natis system.
