1963 JAGUAR MARK X FOUR DOOR SALOON Registration No. EU registered in Sweden Chassis No. 1D75073BW Engine No. 7D5028 -8 Gunmetal grey with red leather upholstery and red trim Engine: six cylinders in-line, twin overhead camshafts, 4,200cc, 265bhp at 5500 rpm; Gearbox: three speed automatic; Suspension: fully independent, at front with wishbones and coil-springs, at rear by trailing-link with coil-springs; Brakes: four wheel hydraulically- operated disc; Steering: power-assisted. Left-hand drive. Jaguar Cars returned to the large luxury saloon car market in 1961 with the lordly Mark X saloon. Styled by Sir William Lyons, clearly with the needs and preferences of the increasingly important North American market in mind, it was lavishly equipped and surrounded its occupants with an ambiance of deep-pleated leather, thick pile carpet and highly polished veneers. It was of unitary structure, the design of its rear independent suspension soon also to be found on the E-Type sports models. In deference to its performance and weight, disc brakes were standardised from the beginning, as was power-steering. Top speed of the original 3.8 litre version was 118 mph, and it took just 10secs. 0-50 mph. But impressive though such figures were, the Mark Ten's real role was to cosset senior executives, to whisk them with silent efficiency from airport to boardroom. It was a task this fine automobile and its latter descendents were to satisfy admirably for some two decades to follow. This car was originally supplied to Sweden and has had few owners. Resprayed once some ten years ago, it retains its upholstery and all other original features; recorded mileage suggests that it has covered some 108,000 kilometers from new. The engine is the up-rated version of 4.2 litres capacity with 8:1 compression head and triple SU carburettors. It has been used regularly but sparingly in the last 10 years during its current ownership, and is a very original example of this now scarce sports saloon. Duty paid in the EC, for UK road usage it will need to be registered with the DVLA in Swansea.
