Jaguar - Mk X - 420G
The Jaguar Mark X (pronounced mark ten) was the largest saloon car built by Jaguar, and was originally aimed at the United States market. Introduced in 1961, it long held the record for being the widest production Jaguar ever built. While in its home country of Britain it was considered an extremely large car, in the United States it is no more than average. The Mark X succeeded the Mark IX as the company's large saloon model.

The classic Jaguar face, four headlamps set into rounded fenders with a vaned grill, first appeared on the Mark X and continues to this day on the XJ and X-Type. The rounded sides and rear are without the characteristic Jaguar rear fender hump and Kamm tail, that feature not arriving until the XJ of 1968.

 

The interior is the last Jaguar with the traditional wood work. Upon the introduction of the XJ, Jaguar limited wood work to an inset plank on the plastic molded dash, later adding filets to the doors and sometimes small picnic tables to the backs of the front seats. In the Mark X however, the dash is entirely made of wood. The wood work not only appears at the base of the windows, but also goes completely around them. Both over the front and rear windshield, and the sidewindows have woodwork above them. Large bookmatched picnic tables fold out from the front seats. Some vehicles have an additional pull-out picnic table up front, as well as wood escutcheons for the heater controls and electric window switches.

 

The suspension was independent all round with coil springs at the front. Two engine sizes were offered with 3,781 cc until 1964 when the larger 4,235 cc unit took over. Manual, manual with overdrive and automatic transmissions were options but most cars left the factory with an automatic. In 1966 the Mark X was renamed the Jaguar 420G. It was discontinued in 1970 as XJ6 production increased.
