Kevin Walsh - Jaguar Jem
Classic Jaguar car art birthday card featuring the Jaguar Mk.2 by artist Kevin Walsh
First produced in 1959, the Jaguar Mk.II has gone on to become one of the real classics of British cars. Though having a production run of eight years, being replaced by the XJ model in 1967.
84,000 cars were produced with three different engine sizes, 2.4, 3.4 and 3.8 litres. Of course, the Mk.II will forever be known as the car driven by Inspector Morse, though John Thaw, the actor who played the title character was known to dislike driving the car.
