Jaguar 420 G
Price on request
The Jaguar Mk. X, later renamed the Jaguar 420G was the top of the range saloon built by the British manufacturer primarily aimed at the US market. The unitary construction body-shell was codenamed ‘Zenith’ during development and this floor pan continued in production long after production ended. The interior was the last Jaguar with abundant standard woodwork, including the dashboard, escutcheons, window trim, a pair of large book-matched fold-out rear picnic tables and a front seat pull-out picnic table stowed beneath the instrument cluster. It was also the first Jaguar saloon to feature independent rear suspension and differed from earlier large Jaguar saloons in having 14" wheels instead of the more common 15". The car initially featured a 3781cc version of Jaguar's XK in-line, six-cylinder engine. For the London Motor Show in October 1964, the enlarged 4235cc unit took over although the 3.8 litre unit could still be specified until October 1965. Stopping power for this heavy car came from servo assisted disc-brakes on all four wheels; power assisted steering was standard.
This 420 G was first registered on 25th March 1969 with the registration MFX 67G. Sitting on steel wheels, it is presented in the distinguished colour combination of Piano Black with complementary Blood Red leather interior which shows a wonderful patina and features electric windows all round. To the rear are two picnic tables and one can well imagine the attraction for the infamous London gangster scene for which the Mk. X and 420 G were famed. Purchased by our vendor as part of a significant private collection, this example has benefitted from continual maintenance and when not in use stored inside in a professional ventilated Carcoon.
