Description

The compact Jaguar saloons of the 1950s and 1960s were some of the most popular performance cars of their day 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, it’s all here.

With a fabulous collection of period and specially commissioned photographs and curiosities and anecdotes uncovered along the way, Jaguar Mark 1 & 2 represents a feast for car lovers, and Jaguar owners.
