Taking elements from the S-Type sedan and the E-Type Coupes, Jaguar plucked the best of both to create its 420 Sedan. MotoeXotica Classic Cars is pleased to offer this genuine black plate California example that has fabulous ownership history. This 1967 Jaguar 420 loaded with factory air conditioning was bought new at Brentwood Motors Jaguar Dealership on November 2nd 1967, which was located in Santa Monica, California to the founder of one of the local pioneering surf clothing outfitters, Laguna Sportswear. In 1975 the producer/surf outfitter sold the Jaguar to his radio station friend Arthur Astor of Santa Ana California. Art Astor is the owner of radio stations KCEO, KSPA in the Inland Empire and KFSD in San Diego, he is a 50-year veteran of Southern California broadcasting. In addition over the past 30 years Astor had assembled a truly spectacular stable of vintage automobiles, over 250 low-mileage examples spanning the 1920s to the 1970s and this 1967 Jaguar was one of the first additions to Astor's amazing car collection. Please note that we also have the 1957 Jaguar XK140 FHC for sale from Astor's fine collection!
Dressed in correct Honey Beige, this car’s paint and trim are in overall very good order; the windows are clear and intact. The car’s lights are clear, intact and lend the car part of its style and grace.
This cat rolls on radial tires, sized 205/75R15 and are topped with factory wire wheels. Both the tires and wheels are in decent condition. All of the car’s body panels are straight and solid and the bumpers are in very good order.
Under the tilt-up bonnet (hood) is Jaguar’s 4.2L DOHC inline six-cylinder (numbers matching #7F3804-9) with two HD8 SU carburetors and mated to a Borg-Warner Model 8 three-speed automatic transmission (numbers matching #16849). Driver convenience features included factory Delanair air-conditioning, Marles Varamatic power steering, power four-wheel disc brakes and independent suspension.
Inside, the tan interior is overall very fine shape. The Connolly Leather seats look fantastic as does the complementing Wilton wool carpet and the supple headliner. The instrument panel with its full set of gauges and burled walnut accents is in crack-free and still looks very good. The original, two-spoke black steering wheel is in very good condition, as are the inner door panels, with burled window frames that echo the dashboard accent. The mirror glass and shift lever are in good condition. Finishing off the interior is a Motorola AM/FM/SW solid-state radio.
Documentation includes the original operator’s manual, copy of the 1975 California title with the registration of the VVN-785 black plate that is still on the car today, original periodic service handbook, original maintenance voucher, original Delanair air-conditioning connection instructions, original radio service guide, original car radio service book, original dealer book and assorted other insurance and licensing paperwork.
