About this model:
Jaguar's flagship saloon in its day, the luxurious 420Garrived in October 1966 as a â€“ mainly cosmetic â€“ update of the Mark X. Launchedin October 1961, the Jaguar Mark X was technically more advanced than precedingJaguar saloons, featuring independent rear suspension similar to that of theE-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 andcomfortable. The Mk X was being built with the 4.2-litre engine, anall-synchromesh gearbox and Marles Varamatic power-assisted steering amongnumerous other improvements by the time the face-lifted 420G (for 'Grand')version came along. Apart from a reshaped front grille and indicator repeaterlights, there was little to differentiate the newcomer externally, while withinthe cabin there were improved seats and a revised dashboard. These alterationswould be among the last made to the 420G, which was dropped in June 1970, itsplace as the forefront of Jaguar's saloon line-up having been taken by thenewly introduced XJ6.
