Jaguar Mark 9 (1959)

This elegant Jaguar in two tone green has only covered 54k miles and is a pleasure to view and drive. It is very original even down to the fitted carpets and while not concours would certainly not disgrace itself in a classic car event. It has matching numbers and is good all round.

The Mark IX was popular as a ceremonial car for state dignitaries. When Charles de Gaulle paid a state visit to Canada in 1960, the official cars for the motorcade were Mark IX Jaguars, rather than Cadillacs or Lincolns. Some 10.000 were produced and exported all over the world. They are now pretty rare and solid ones like this are a good investment.
A complete file of work from 1978 is available. The engine is excellent and had a lead-free head fitted in 1999. All the auxiliaries have been reconditioned over the years with the brakes being refurbished only last year. The body and is good and the paintwork was done long ago but is still good with evidence of careful tidying in a couple of places. Internally it is all leather and wood, gently worn here and there but very respectable. It has had 3 owners and comes with its original log book (not a continuation one), MoT’s and tax discs from 1978. From about 2008-15 it was in Ireland but is now back with its original registration.
On the road it offers a majestic driving experience and is well able to keep up with modern traffic. The automatic performs well with the steering wheel control light still working but a little stiff to get into reverse. The sunshine roof is operational; again a little stiff through lack of use. Finally it still has most tools in the front door tray and the boot is original with the cream covers still in place.
We are open to part exchange with similar or more recent cars but not modern ones.
