1965 Jaguar Mark X

1965 Jaguar Mark X

The Jaguar Mark X (Mark ten), later renamed the Jaguar 420G, was British manufacturer Jaguar’s top-of-the-range saloon car for a decade, from 1961 to 1970. The large, luxurious Mark X succeeded the Mark IX as the company’s top saloon model, and was primarily aimed at the United States market. The company hoped to appeal to heads of state, diplomats and film stars.

The Mark X was the first Jaguar saloon to feature independent rear suspension designed by William Heynes, Jaguar Technical Director and Chief Engineer. The front suspension used double wishbones with coil springs and telescopic dampers.

Power initially came from the E-type’s version of Jaguar’s 3781 cc XK in-line six-cylinder engine. Later for the London Motor Show in October 1964 the enlarged 4,235 cc unit took over. Stopping power for this heavy car came from power-assisted four-wheel disc brakes, the rear units being mounted inboard alongside the differential. Power-assisted steering was standard on the later 4.2 cars and this particular car benefits from this.

This stunning example has been the recipient of a meticulous restoration. Finished in British Racing Green with tan leather interior and beautiful woodwork this really is a show stopper. The Mark X really is a very practical and usable classic and priced to sell this vehicle represents outstanding value.
