'For spacious and silent, high-performance motoring, Jaguar now present the 420 "G" a luxury saloon with every conceivable refinement and many new interior and exterior styling features.' Jaguar Cars Ltd.
Introduced in October 1966, the 420G was the final development of Jaguar's MkX luxury saloon, which has been launched back in 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. Combining a comfortable ride with excellent handling, this new suspension system ingeniously used lower wishbones with the driveshafts functioning as the upper links. 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 torquier 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 arrived. Apart from indicator repeater lights and a reshaped front end, presaging the looks of the yet-to-be-announced XJ6, there was little to differentiate the newcomer externally. Within the cabin there were improved seats and a revised dashboard that is surely one of the most attractive ever to grace a prestige automobile. 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 is finished in blue with pale grey leather interior. Restored by the previous owner and described by the vendor as in generally good condition, the car comes with Swansea V5 registration document and comprehensive service history including all previous MoT certificates.
