The first Mk2 in Australia to take on the might of the factory-built ‘Mk1’s was the red car owned and raced by colourful Sydney car dealer Ron Hodgson.
Hodgson sold his first works Mk1 to race the Mk2 and twice he finished third in the Australian Touring Car Championship driving it (1960/61).
He won at Warwick Farm and had podium placings at Bathurst and other circuits of the time.
The car has been missing (but known of) for many years, and was in the midst of being restored by is long time owner, and original mechanic, when he died.
The family is now offering it for sale with work still needed to finish this truly historic racing Jaguar. It is totally complete though with original trim and electrics yet to go back.
This one is not to be confused with another car Hodgson built up as a replica shortly before he died.
