The Jaguar Mk 10's new style, four headlamps set into rounded front wings with a vaned grill, first appeared in 1961. From its introduction in mid-October 1961 the Mark X was the first Jaguar saloon to feature independent rear suspension. The car initially featured a 3,781 cc version of Jaguar's XK in-line six-cylinder engine, but for the London Motor Show in October 1964 the enlarged 4,235 cc unit took over. Triple SU carburettors were fitted, and transmission options were manual or automatic. The arrival of the 4.2-litre power unit coincided with the introduction of a newly developed all-synchromesh four-speed gear box. Many domestic market cars and almost all export cars left the factory with a Borg Warner automatic gear-box. The 4.2-litre engine's introduction was also marked by a transmission upgrade for the automatic cars, which saw an upgrade of the Borg Warner transmission from a DG to a Type-8 unit. The power train was completed by a Thornton Powr-Lok limited-slip differential. Stopping power for this heavy car came from power-assisted disc-brakes on all four wheels. Power-assisted steering was standard on all the later 4.2 cars. The vendor tells us that this very rare and well maintained 4.2 Mark 10 has a Manual Gearbox with overdrive, and power steering. The last of the Mark 10s were 4.2lt, which is unusual, but fitted with a manual box and power steering is very rare. The car has only had 5 keepers, it has old MOTs back to 1968 which would appear to verify the mileage. There is some old maintenance history, including the original Service Book, and also some Repair History. There are the original handbooks, a set of original tools, the period Radiomobile radio, complete with operating manual. The car is in good condition, mechanicals are good, interior is very presentable, with good wood and leather. The bodywork is good as is the paintwork.
