The principle change was the increase in armour thickness from 7.25 mm to 8.25 mm. The 4-cylinder petrol engine of 2,286 cc was the same as in the Mark 1 giving 77 bhp at 4,100 rpm. By 1968 the Mark 2 was available and advertised with the option of the 6-cylinder 2,625 cc engine giving 84 bhp at 4,500 rpm; this engine initially had a compression ratio of 7:1.
