Seeking a classic imported luxury car that is not a fullsize MercedesBenz or big BMW? MotoeXotica Classic Cars has a possible solution with this 1964 Jaguar Mark X Saloon.
Made on March 16, 1964 at Jaguars Coventry, England factory, where it left painted Opalescent Dark Green (code 2638) with Suede Green interior. It was dispatched on April 7, 1964 via Jaguar Cars in New York, NY.
About 10 years ago, the car was repainted and reupholstered the exterior is now black while the interior is red leather. The paint and trim are in excellent overall condition. The windows are clear and intact while the cars lights are hazefree and intact. The cars bodywork is straight and solid including the chrome bladed bumpers.
The area under the bonnet (hood) is extremely tidy, the battery appears new while the boot (trunk) is in very good overall condition, complete with fullsized spare tire and cover. This classic cat rolls on Coker Classic redline tires, size P195/70R14 at all four corners and each tire is mounted on a steel wheel topped with factory wheel cover. The tires and wheel covers are all in very good order.
Under the hood is Jaguars venerable 3.8L straight six motor breathing via triple SU carburetors and dual exhausts and backed by a BorgWarner DG250 threespeed automatic transmission and a 3.54:1 rear end. Driver convenience features include airconditioning, power steering, power fourwheel disc brakes and power windows.
Inside, the cars red leather interior is quite eyecatching and complements the exterior well. The supple leather is very inviting and the burled walnut accents on the door panels, instrument panel and center console inject warmth. The front and rear seats are in excellent shape, as is the matching carpet. The factory twospoke steering wheel is present and looks great. The dashboard and inner door liners are in nearly impeccable condition. Even the center console looks fantastic. The interior was Jaguars last to feature abundant standard woodwork, including the dashboard, escutcheons, window trim, a pair of large bookmatched fold out rear picnic tables, and a front seat pullout picnic table stowed beneath the instrument cluster.
TheJaguar MarkX(Mark Ten) was British manufacturerJaguars topoftherangesaloon for a decade, from 1961 to 1970. The large, luxurious MarkX succeeded theMarkIXas the companys top saloon model and was primarily aimed at the United States market. The company hoped to appeal to heads of state, diplomats and film stars.
Introduced in the same year as Jaguars iconicEType, the MarkX impressed with its technical specification and innovations. Contrary to its predecessors, the car featured integrated,unitary bodywork the largest in the UK at the time, as well asindependent rear suspension, unheard for early 1960s British luxury cars.Combined with the 3.8litre, triple carburetor engine as fitted to the Etype, it gave Jaguars flagship a top speed of 120mph and capable handling at less than half the price of the contemporaryRollsRoyce Silver Cloud.
Despite press acclaim from both sides of the Atlantic, the MarkX never achieved its sales targets. When Jaguar decided to replace its entire saloon range with a single new model, the resultingXJ6 of 1968used the MarkX as a template albeit with a reduced size.
In 1961, the MarkX introduced a new upright, and slightly forwardleaning nose design for Jaguar saloons, with four headlamps set into rounded front fenders (derived fromDaimler DK400), and a vaned grill. This frontend style reappeared on many of the manufacturers successive saloons, up to and including theXTypeand third generationJaguar XJ,boththrough 2009 thereby forging Jaguar saloons look for half of a century. In 2008,Jalopnikcalled the quad round headlight design the classiest headlight configuration and the fourthbest car design element of all time, mentioning Jaguar specifically.
Instead of relying onbodyonframeconstruction, like its predecessors and most of its competitors, the MarkX received a unitary constructionmonocoquebodyshell, codenamed Zenith during its development. The substantial doors required helicaltorsion springsinside the door pillars to enable them to be opened from the inside with a low level of effort.
From its introduction in midOctober 1961until the arrival in 1992 of the lowslungXJ220, the MarkX stood as one of the widest production Jaguars ever built. Asked in 1972 if he thought the MarkX had grown too large, Jaguar chairmanWilliam Lyons agreed that it definitely had: he opined that the then recently introduced and notably more compactJaguar XJ6was, by contrast an ideal size.
The MarkX was the first Jaguar saloon to featureindependent rear suspension. It differed from earlier large Jaguar saloons in having 14 wheels instead of the more common 15. It used a widertrack version ofJaguars IRS unitfirst seen on theEType, which was subsequently used on Jaguar vehicles untilXJSproduction ended in 1996. The front suspension used double wishbones with coil springs and telescopic dampers.
Power initially came from the Etypes version of Jaguars XKinline sixcylinder engine. A 9:1 compression ratio was standard but an alternative 8:1 compression ratio was available as an option. TripleSU carburetorswere fitted, fed from an AC Delco air filter mounted ahead of the righthand front wheel.
Transmission options weremanual, manual withoverdrive, automatic, or automatic with overdrive. Many domestic market cars and all cars destined for the important North American markets left the factory with a Borg Warnerautomatic gearbox.
Stopping power for this heavy car came from powerassisted discbrakes on all four wheels and powerassisted steering was standard.
