Footnotes

  • Launched in October 1961, the Jaguar Mark X was technically more advanced than preceding Jaguar saloons, featuring independent rear suspension similar to that of the E-Type sports car and the tried-and-tested XK 3.8-litre six-cylinder engine. For a car weighing around two tons the 120mph Mk X was impressively quick and, like all Jaguar saloons, its interior was exceptionally well appointed and comfortable. The Mk X was being built with the 4.2-litre engine, an all-synchromesh gearbox and Marles Varamatic power-assisted steering among numerous other improvements by the time the face-lifted 420G (for ‘Grand’) version came along in October 1966. Apart from a reshaped front grille and indicator repeater lights there was little to differentiate the newcomer externally, while within the cabin there were improved seats and a revised dashboard. These alterations would be among the last made to the 420G, which was dropped in June 1970, its place as the company’s flagship saloon having been taken by the newly introduced XJ6.
    This automatic-transmission 420G was restored to a good standard during the 1990s by Auto Cure on the Isle of Wight, while more recent works have included a brake overhaul, carburettor rebuild, new exhaust, etc. ‘VBP 40F’ ran and drove well when inspected recently and is presented in generally good condition. The car is offered with recently expired MoT (February 2009), Swansea V5 and a substantial file of history. No reserve.
