The Volkswagen Kombi van reached iconic status, with even a school lunch box fashioned in its image. During those early years, the Volkswagen Microbus morphed into various forms. From a cargo carrier with no windows behind the driver's seat to a windowed passenger van with three rows of seats, the possibilities seemed endless.

In the mid-1950s Jaguar was riding high on the wave created by the highly advanced twin-cam inline six. The firm could bask in the glory of the hugely successful XK sports cars and their offspring the world-beating C-Type and D-Type sports racers. Even their massive Mk VII and Mk IX luxury cars enjoyed surprising success in British Saloon Car racing in the hands of Stirling Moss, Roy Salvadori and others. However Jaguar was never one to rest on its laurels and they soon recognized an opportunity to appeal to an even broader market with a smaller compact luxury saloon that shared a common bloodline with their highly successful sports cars. The new mid-sized sedan debuted in 1955 built on Jaguar S first-ever road-going monocoque chassis and powered by 2.4 or 3.4-liter versions of the glorious XK twin-cam inline six. The curvaceous body styling was influenced by the XK sports cars and despite the smaller size it was luxuriously trimmed with wood leather and wool.
The Mark II was an overnight motorsport sensation proving to be a formidable competitor in rallying and saloon car racing through the early 1960s. Many consider it to be the father of the modern sports sedan with its compact dimensions, powerful engine, handsome styling and race-proven performance. The Mk II and its later derivatives were mainstays of the Jaguar line and sold well through the coming decade. Variations of the Mk II lasted through 1968 when Jaguar rationalized its saloon line up into one single car the XJ6. As brilliant as it was the XJ6 didnt quite capture the same raw appeal and performance of the Mk II which remains an icon of 1960s British motoring culture.
