Auction description:

1969 Jaguar 420G

Colour Silver

Odometer 96,900 Miles

Engine size 4235

Town Sanquhar

Seller Type Private

Location Scotland

Country United Kingdom

Rare 4.2-litre engine

265bhp, amazing for a ‘60s saloon

A luxury four door to use or improve

First registered in April 1969

MoT and road tax exempt

Many historic MoT certificates present

Garaged and only driven on dry days

Reportedly restored in 1990s

 The Interior

Lashings of walnut veneer

Luxurious leather trim

Well stocked dashboard

With Jaguar’s famous ‘Grace, Space, Pace’ advertising slogan, the 420G was certainly the standard bearer for the ‘Space’ contingent. The cavernous interior is a magnificent place to be with sumptuous leather upholstery, walnut veneer aplenty and all the trappings of ‘60s luxury. 

The finely figured woodwork is in good condition, with only a few areas which could benefit from a re-polish. The leather is excellent and the vendor states that it is free from scuffs and blemishes. All the fixtures and fittings are said to work perfectly, and even the notoriously tricky vacuum assisted air vent is still in working order. And the plentiful switches and gauges appear to be undamaged and showing little sign of wear. 

In all, this is a very pleasant place to stretch out and enjoy the journey.

 The Exterior 

Opalescent silver paintwork

Refurbished wheels

Welding has been completed when necessary

The distinctive shape of the 420G is instantly recognisable, with its purposeful forward stance, four headlamps and trademark curved Jaguar rear quarterlights. 

The vendor states that although the car exhibits some areas of corrosion — notably to the lower sections of the doors — it has not deteriorated during his ownership, having always been stored in a garage and only driven on dry days. 

We are informed that this 420G has received repairs to the front right wheelarch, the floorpans and seatbelt mounting points about five years ago, and that it was subject to an extensive restoration in the 1990s. 

The wheels have reportedly been blasted and repainted, and new hubcaps have been fitted.

The Mechanics 

Desirable 4.2-litre engine

Recent engine tuning

Brakes could do with a check over

Benefitting from being powered by the larger 4.2-litre engine with its triple carburettors, this 420G is a force to be reckoned with. Its 265bhp and top speed of 120mph are very impressive for a saloon car in the 1960s.

The engine has reportedly been tuned recently by a retired Jaguar mechanic and starts first time, with good oil pressure and no overheating issues. An uprated sports ignition coil is fitted for reliable running. 

The only noted mechanical issue is that the brakes are slightly less powerful than the vendor would wish for, having seen little use recently. The next owner may find that this issue resolves itself through use, but we would nonetheless recommend an inspection by a specialist.

Certainly, this seems to be a great runner, with a few jobs for an enthusiastic tinkerer.

Spam prevention question (must be answered):
The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
