Mr. Chartier’s exhaustive restoration involved hundreds of hours of labor in which every mechanical component was gone through, rebuilt, or restored using correct parts, including a correct engine rebuild, all accomplished by the owner and knowledgeable friends from the Jaguar Club in Ottawa. All is documented by a meticulous file of photographs and receipts for parts and materials that alone cost over $30,000.
Between 2007 and 2009, the car was judged at the British Invasion in Stowe, Vermont, winning 3rd in 2007 and 2nd in 2009. After each judging, Mr. Chartier would work to correct the recorded deficiencies, and in 2011, at the 21st British Invasion, he scored 1st Place with the car. In five years it was driven about 2,500 miles, and always kept in heated winter storage. Recently it was brought to Arizona, and reportedly was road-tested and drove beautifully at 65 mph. It is offered with the aforementioned JDHT certificate and records, as well as a correct tool set, jack, and spare.
This is one of the finest Mark 2s available today, a testament to the fine craftsmanship and dedication of an enthusiast for whom only the best was acceptable.
