Launched in October 1961, the Jaguar MkX was technically more advanced than preceding Jaguar saloons, and featured independent rear suspension similar to that of the E-Type sportscar. The same unit as that fitted to the contemporary E-Type sports car, its engine was the tried-and-tested 3.8-litre XK six producing 265bhp on triple SU carburettors, and for a car weighing around two tons the 120mph MkX was impressively quick, though inevitably the weight took its toll of the fuel consumption. The interior, like that of all Jaguar saloons, was exceptionally well appointed and comfortable, and the MkX came with power-assisted steering as standard. By the time the face-lifted 420G version came along in 1966, the MkX was being built with 4.2-litre engine and (optional) all-synchromesh gearbox while incorporating numerous other improvements. Last MoTd in 1993, this automatic-transmission Jaguar MkX saloon is offered in need of total restoration. The vehicle is offered Swansea V5 document and sold strictly as viewed.
