1961 JAGUAR MARK IX
Chassis no. 791579BW
Engine no. NC4780-9
Body no. NO04752
Gearbox no. JB8 5911

This superb Jaguar Mark IX is certainly among the very best examples on the planet, of an unmolested and unrestored survivor. As you can see by the pictures, this is a beautiful and very straight highly optioned Mk IX. This car came with a factory sliding roof, radio, twin tanks and high output heater plus as an added bonus this was the first year for the upgraded big disc brakes on all four corners. Also this car sports generator power steering and a large core radiator. This example has virtually no rust other than normal Mk IX flaws. It has correct Wilton Wools. All of the burl wood is in spectacular condition for never have been stripped and refinished. We bought this car out of sheer amazement of the quality of the upkeep for over 40 years. Instead of molesting the car and trying to restore it, we have left it as we bought it with the beautiful timeless aging. The only attention we gave this timeless driver was a minor tune and a little bit of clean up. Other than that I have been driving the car every other day. It runs like a top! Because of the unbelievable upkeep over the years, this car will make it's new owner extremely proud and will be very low maintenance due to the fact it was pampered for years.

1960 JAGUAR MARK IX

Auction Type:  Reserve

Current Bid: $9,100 (USD)

Ends In: 2 Days

Chassis/VIN: 791579BW

Location: Candia, New Hampshire

Odometer: 60,413 (Mi)

Lot Number: 24564633

Engine: 3.8L I6

Seller: rbmit_mm Private Party

Transmission:Automatic

This 1960 Jaguar Mark IX has been with the seller for 12 years and has reportedly received $50,000 in engine, suspension, and running gear updates. It is equipped with a "Blue Head" 3.8-liter dual-overhead-cam inline-6 engine with a 9:1 compression ratio and a Detroit Gear DG250 automatic transmission. Features include power steering, a limited-slip rear differential with a 3.56:1 gear ratio, a manual sunroof, power-assisted disc brakes at all four corners, and dual fuel tanks. This two-tone medium blue and silver Jaguar with a red leather interior is available now and comes with receipts, original sales brochures, and a clear New Hampshire title in the seller’s name.

The exterior was refinished in medium blue with silver side inserts under previous ownership. Features include chrome bumpers, driving lights, dual headlights, a chrome grille, chrome mirror caps, a manual sunroof, dual taillights, and chrome trunk trim with an integrated reverse light. The seller notes there is some rust in the dog legs ahead of the rear wheels, on the front edge of the fender skirts (spats), and on a lower front corner of the right front door. They add that their efforts were focused on making this car a “dependable highway cruiser,” not a “show car.” They refer to the vehicle as a “20-footer" with paintwork that could use a refresh.

A set of body-color steel wheels with chrome center caps is wrapped in wide-whitewall radial tires from Diamond Back. The seller states that the tires are 10 years old and may need replacement.

The front and rear bench seats are upholstered in red leather. The use of Bench Seats for both the front and the rear means that 6 passengers can travel in relative comfort. The seller states that the leather on the driver’s seat is good, but the springs and padding need to be redone. In addition, the driver-side rear armrest needs to be recovered. Interior features include red carpeting, woodgrain accents, rear seat trays, refurbished front and rear clocks, a fully functional body wiring harness, a manual sunroof, power-assisted brakes, power steering, and an AM radio.

A 120-mph speedometer, a 6K-rpm tachometer with an integrated clock, and gauges for the fuel level, coolant temperature, oil pressure, and amps are mounted in the wood dashboard ahead of the driver. The odometer reads 60,413 miles but the true mileage on this vehicle is unknown. The tachometer and speedometer have been reconditioned by Nisonger Instruments.

Power is provided by a "Blue Head" 3.8-liter dual-overhead-cam inline-6 engine with a 9:1 compression ratio and backed by a Detroit Gear DG250 automatic transmission. Underhood features include rebuilt power steering, a sleeved power brake master cylinder, a re-cored radiator, a rebuilt water pump, and an electric fan. The cap, rotor, wire set, and valve spring guide retainers have been replaced and the carburetors have been rebuilt. Additionally, the distributor has been rebuilt by Rob Medynski at British Vacuum Unit and the exhaust manifolds have been re-coated.

This Jaguar is factory-equipped with a torsion-bar front suspension and a solid rear drive axle. Braking is provided by 4-wheel power-assisted disc brakes. According to the seller, the brake master cylinder and all the brake calipers have been sleeved. In addition, the brake pads, steel and rubber brake lines, suspension bushings, ball joints, tie rod ends, and the gear-reduction starter has been replaced. The emergency brake mechanism, automatic transmission, and torque converter have been rebuilt. The rear-end gearing has been changed from an original 4.10:1 to a 3.54:1 ratio, which enables highway cruising at 70 mph and an engine speed that doesn't exceed 3,000 rpm. A limited-slip rear differential has been added to prevent the car from getting stuck in the wet grass on a car show field after a rainstorm. The front suspension has been completely dissembled and powder-coated black. Both gas tanks have been removed, repaired, cleaned, and equipped with a working fuel gauge and fuel pumps.

The seller will include $50,000 in receipts and original sales brochures with the sale.
