Description

This Jaguar is in amazing shape and waiting for someone to restore it. The car is basically 100% there. The wire wheel for the right front is in the back. Was like that when i bought it. ENGINE TURNS OVER BY HAND IS NOT SEIZED UP. Car has been stored inside for the past 30 years in a temprature controlled room. The back windscreen was removed to replace the headliner which has not been completed yet. The glass is in good shape and is sitting in the back seat. The main isssue with the body is the right front fender, the drivers side. The fender weld has come loose on the bottom which makes it stick out a bit further. All in all the car I feel is in excellent shape considering the age. I do have a clean Virginia Title on the car. All the numbers are matching. The car has 2 carbs and they where both rebuilt about 2 years ago. The roof is dent and rust free to the best of my knowledge. Car has the original factory sun roof as well as cruise control and power steering. Car has 2 fuel tanks with original locking lids. The car is right hand drive. Below I will list just a bit of history on the car that I have found. The car was manufactured from 1959-1961. There where 10,009 Total Jaguar MK IX Saloons made. The car is manufactured in Coventry England. The Jaguar Mark IX (pronounced mark nine) is a large luxury Jaguar Cars between 1959 and 1961. It replaced the previous Mark X in 1961. 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. The English Queen Mother had a Mark VII Jaguar which was progressively upgraded to be externally identical to the later Mark IX. The Nigerian government bought forty Mark IXs, painted in the Nigerian state colours of green and white. The large Jaguars of the 1950s were sufficiently popular in western Africa that "Jagwah" (because of their accemt) survives in as a colloquialism for "smart man-about-town". In the luxury car market, the Jaguar Mk IX was very competitively priced, selling for ₤1995 with manual gearbox, ₤2063 with overdrive, and ₤2163 with automatic transmission, which was less than half the price of similar competitors. Standard transmission was a four-speed manual system: options included Borg Warner three-speed automatic box.DOHC power steering, which were now standard equipment. The brake system included a vacuum reserve tank to preserve braking in the event that the engine stalled. On models with automatic transmission, the brakes were equipped with an electromagnetic valve that maintained brake pressure at rest when the brake pedal was released to prevent the car from rolling back on an incline, hence its name "Hill Holder". The Hill Holder was often troublesome (failing to release the brakes when the accelerator was depressed) and was disconnected on most cars without ill effect. The power steering was driven by a Hobourn-Eaton pump, operating at 600-650 psi. It was attached to the back of the generator and allowed the steering to be geared up to 3.5 turns lock-to-lock as against the 4.5 turns for the Mark VII and VIII models. Unlike the Mark VII and VIII predecessors, the Borg Warner DG automatic gearbox started in first gear and had a dash-mounted switch to allow second gear to be held indefinitely. Once in third gear, a series of clutches engaged to allow direct drive rather than through the torque converter. The torsion bar independent front suspension and leaf-sprung rear live axle were retained from the Mk VIII, which, in turn, was first used in the 1949 Mark V. Final drive was 4.27:1, (4.55:1 when overdrive was fitted). The sunshine roof became a standard fitting for the UK market. The interior was in the same luxurious mode with extensive use of leather, walnut wood trim and deep pile carpet. A range of single and duo-tone paint schemes was offered. A car with automatic transmission tested by the British magazine The Motor in 1958 had a top speed of 114.4 mph (184.1 km/h) and could accelerate from 0–60 mph (97 km/h) in 11.3 seconds. A fuel consumption of 15.2 miles per imperial gallon (18.6 L/100 km; 12.7 mpg-US) was recorded. The test car cost £2162 including taxes of £721.
