Better Buy It Now: 1959-’67 Jaguar Mark II

Yes, even in today’s red-hot classic car market, you can still buy a classic Jaguar sporting car for less than the cost of a loaded new Ford Fusion. The Mark II Jaguar is just that car. It was the world’s first true sports sedan, mixing luxury and performance in an elegant and capable package. It also represents the last affordable vintage Jaguar on the market today.

If you know what to look for in an E-Type, then you’re already somewhat up to speed on the sedan’s mechanics—they’re similar under the skin. Do keep in mind that the more complex Mark II body provides more opportunities for rust to take root, while the interior can cost twice the money to restore.

Prices for a nice driver Mark II start at around $25,000, with the best examples selling for $40,000 to $60,000.

What you get in these stunning cars is the epitome of the Jaguar idea of grace, space and pace. Buy yours now before the prices skyrocket along with the rest of the Jaguar models.
