This Jaguar MK2 was produced on the 22nd of March 1960 in British Racing Green with a Suede Green interior trim. Dispatched on the 31st of March 1960 through Jaguar Cars New York to its first owner when it received its Californian registration DLP930. The original California black plate is still on the car. In the eighties the car was owned by Carol N and Elmer L Tretten, Orinda, California. In August 1986, it was purchased, through the Junior Museum Pack Rack sale by its last long term owners Edward George and Suzanne Marie Mitchell, Walnut Creek, California. The car was donated to a school and sold at this auction for $3.000,- USD. During 2009 the car was imported into The Netherlands and the last owner has kept the MK2 dry and safe until our recent purchase.
