Expanding upon the Mark I, these sedans were offered with a number of appointments that ranged from comfortable interiors, a variety of colors, and expanded powertrain choices, all while maintaining the essence of Jaguar. With their popularity rising due to the popular British TV series Inspector Morse, the Jaguar Mark II/340s were successful for the British automaker. Interestingly, they were highly popular amongst bank robbers, with their substantial horsepower, ample space for occupants, and superior handling characteristics. Widely regarded as the worlds first sport sedan, with advanced features such as 4-wheel disc brakes, a limited slip differential, a four-speed gearbox with overdrive, and a tachometer. Over time the shape and timeless design of the Mark II/340 has appreciated more and more, with increased interest among collectors over the past decade. This Jaguar 340 was reportedly first sold by Charles Hornberg Jaguar of West Hollywood, California to Dennis Mawer, painted in Honey Beige with factory copper-accented wheels. He went on to own the car for approximately 7 years before the Jaguar found its way to its new owners, Ad and Marsha Hirsch. In 1974 Ad was looking for a new car for his wife, Marsha. Originally, they thought about purchasing a Rolls Royce, although after a few days and a number of sticker shocks later they decided that they werent Rolls Royce people. One day while shopping they drove past a Ralphs Market on Devonshire boulevard in Los Angeles and saw the Honey Beige Jaguar sitting in the parking lot with a for sale sign in the window.
