Jaguar's ultimate expression of a series of
"Sporting Saloons"

The Jaguar 420G introduced at the October
1966 London Motor Show and produced for two
years as the ultimate expression of a series
of "sporting saloons". Jaguar took advantage
and used the new sports car technology that
was developed for the iconic E-Type including
the independent rear suspension with inboard
discs and utilizing the proven 265 BHP
legendary XK engine. The first of Jaguar's
line up to have a monocoque design which sits
the car lower enabling its formidable
handling characteristics.

This is a true British classic!

The finish of this Old English White sports
sedan reflects the care and attention given
in its very recent restoration. As previously
said she is not quite concourse but very
close. The vehicle has an authentic Jaguar
Heritage Certificate detailing its history
and original ownership. Numbers agree save
for the engine which was replaced with an
identical 1978 newer one. Odometer records
3167 real mileage is unknown.

Description

What is known is that this superb example of
a fully restored Jaguar turn heads. The paint
is excellent and shows a few tiny defects
that cannot be seen without very close
inspection. The chrome work is all new except
for exterior handles and side glass
trim,which didn't require a re-plate. The
interior was completely reupholstered with
correct English wool-cloth headlining, faux
leather, new carpets including ¾ inch under-
felt, all imported from the UK, all rubbers
everywhere have been replaced. Wood trim has
been restored throughout. Period 3 point
inertia seat belts have been fitted. The 27
cubic feet of trunk has been reupholstered
with correct biscuit material and comes
complete with period correct matching Jaguar
faux luggage. The original radio works well
with a new period correct electronic aerial.
All electrics work as they should.

White wall radial tires on steel rims with
new chrome, no curb scuffs. New exhaust,
brakes, suspension rubbers, engine and
transmission mountings, carburetors rebuilt,
electronic distributor fitted, new power
steering pump, new alternator and viscous fan
coupling. New hoses. Detailed to near
perfection.

It has the original owners manual and a
complete workshop manual.

The car drives extremely well, it is powerful
and fast yet quiet and astonishingly
comfortable as all Jaguars should be! “Your
turn behind the wheel Sir? Yes Jeeves,
splendid, thank you”

The Jaguar 420G was the upmarket luxury
version of the Jaguar Mk X and it was
designed to appeal to heads of state,
captains of industry, bankers, and other
status conscious and ridiculously wealthy
people and indeed the 420G did sell to some
of those. But this luxurious four door
limousine was also very attractive to Third
World despots, captains of organized crime,
bank robbers, and those who were making a
very nice living being rather nasty to their
fellow human beings. It was a car that James
Bond would look quite at home in, it was a
car that British Royalty would look at home
in, and it was a car that a James Bond
villain would look quite fitting in also. It
was a car that had an amazing social
mobility.

The Jaguar 420G has an interior that looks
like it should smell of cigar smoke. In fact
if you are a cigar aficionado this is an
ideal smoking lounge to enjoy either with
your chauffeur piloting you around whilst you
partake of something from Romeo Y Julietta or
with you at the helm with a Winston Churchill
smile on your face whilst you get that 4.2
litre E Type engine fully into the spirit of
the drive.

Although the early Jaguar Mk X began life
with the 3.8 liter six cylinder DOHC engine
that Sir William Lyons and his team had
designed whilst on “Fire Watch” during the
Blitz it was not quite enough engine for the
big wide body of the car so it was upgraded
to the 4.2 liter version in 1964. This
transformed the car into the Jekyll and Hyde
automobile Sir William Lyons had designed it
to be. With its fully independent suspension
front and rear and wide body this was a quick
cat that could go, corner and stop with
something approaching the litheness of a
Mini. The car was fitted with a Thornton
Powr-Lok limited-slip differential so if the
driver got into some serious wheel lifting
cornering the big Jag would squat down under
acceleration and go around the corner as if
it were on rails.

The Jaguar 420G version of the Jaguar Mk X
was introduced at the London Motor Show at
Earls Court in October 1966. The era of the
Beatles, Rolling Stones, Mary Quandt and
Carnaby Street. It was born into a Britain
whose Empire was being transformed into a
Commonwealth. This was the luxury model that
shared the undercarriage of the E Type, a car
which had taken the world by storm. The 420G
was never described as being as beautiful as
the E Type but it was an unashamedly
luxurious car with the suspension, engine and
brakes of the E Type underneath it.

With its smooth automatic transmission and
cigar lounge interior this is a car that I
think Winston Churchill himself would have
enjoyed. Its a car for an old fashioned
gentleman who just wants to have fun.
