A culmination of Grace, Pace and Space, the Jaguar 420 is
perhaps one of the lesser known saloons in Jaguars range despite outselling all
of it’s stablemates during it’s limited production run.
The Jaguar 420 was introduced in 1966 as a model between the
S-Type and the huge (by comparison) 420G. It derived the same base 4.2 engine
as the larger 420G and E-Type but with only two carburettors producing around
245hp (gross). The overall styling of the 420 resembled the S-type bar with a
‘nicer’ looking front end. The 420 gained various features over the lesser
S-Type such as, optional Marles Varamatic power steering, cross flow radiator,
duel-line hydraulic braking system, duel 2inch HD8 carburettors, negative
earthing, alternator and a pre-engaged starter motor. In 1967, the 420 outsold all
other Jaguar saloon models including the MK2’s, Daimler 250, S-type and 420G
making it very successful and confirming to Jaguar that a relatively compact
and well-appointed saloon car would be very successful thus cumulating in the
XJ6 which swept the MKII, S-type and 420 from the Jaguar range. Due to the limited
time frame of production, only about 10,000 420’s were produced.
This particular 420 is in very good condition for its age
painted in old English white with blue interior, it is fitted with the optional
power steering, power boosted brakes and 3 speed automatic transmission. The
420 and drives exactly how a jaguar should with effortless power and an
exceptionally smooth ride and has recently undergone a full tune up and check
over, now ready for its new custodians.
