For anyone with an interest in, or who is thinking of buying, one of the classic Jaguar compact saloons from the 1950s and 1960s, this Essential Buyer’s Guide is a vital requirement. All the models are covered, from the early 2.4- and 3.4-litre saloons from the late 1950s, through to the very last 240 models, AND, just as importantly, the Daimler derivatives with the V8 engines. The models are looked at in detail, and analysed for their strengths and weaknesses, to provide the best possible advice on what to look for and how to buy the best you can afford. A handy pocket-sized guide that will always be at your side for constant reference.

Independent Reviews

'Another in this soft-covered book which is a must for buyers of older models. Jaguar authority, Nigel Thorley, who is a multi-Jaguar book author and is drenched in Jaguar knowledge, covers the pitfalls and benefits of purchasing every variation of the Mk1 and Mk2...'
Jaguar Magazine

'an excellent guide to the pitfalls of Jaguar… Take it with you, and if necessary, wave it in front of a seller who's shooting you a line.'
