(SOLD) This is an Arizona car that once was a recipient of a 1st place trophy at a JCNA show. It is rust free, and in complete and original condition. This is a very roomy and comfortable car to own and drive. With a little detail and TLC the car could become a contender for a show again, or just makes good driver and a very nice example of Mark X Sedan.
Originally aimed at the North American market, the 'Mark Ten' succeeded the Mark IX in 1961 as Jaguar's large, extra wide, luxury saloon, first showing off the soon-to-be familiar, modern face of Jaguar - prominent grille between four headlamps. Production started with the iconic XK 6-cylinder twin-cam motor of 3.8 liters, to be superseded by the 4.2 liter in the 1965 model year. All North American market cars came with the Borg-Warner Typ-8 automatic transmission. Of the 5,137 4.2s made, few survive and even fewer in this restored condition. At 4200 lbs, the 4.2 liter six-cylinder engine helped this vehicle roll down the road in elegant fashion. The vehicle sat on a 120 inch wheelbase and its 202 inch length provided plenty of room for its occupants. Body-on-frame construction was replaced by a massive unitized structure with coil-spring independent rear suspension like that of the E-Type. It came equipped with power steering, power windows, and air conditioning. It was almost as large as some full-size American cars of the period, but managed to look smaller because of the traditionally graceful Jaguar styling.
