Description

You won’t find a second one, we can say that in this case, can’t we? When was the last time you saw a 1960 Jaguar Mark 9 in its original paint? That can rightly be called unique. The car was delivered new in the United States and recently arrived in the Netherlands. The American owners have always carefully cared for the car and the Jaguar is still in beautiful original condition.
The Mark 9 was the absolute pinnacle of luxury in the Jaguar range when it was introduced. The stately British limousine could compete with the best on the market and still looks very elegant. It makes you think, why couldn’t Jaguar continue this line to the present? Anyway, back to the Mark 9. The car has less than 31,000 miles on the clock and we have every reason to believe that this is the original mileage. The interior is largely original as well as the entire exterior. The car has stood still for a while in the collection of a museum. The museum occasionally used the car for parades, taking it out only for special occasions nearby. The great thing about it is that the car has been used regularly instead of just standing still. It is immediately apparent at the first glance of the car. The outside looks beautiful. The sheet metal is nice and thin everywhere and fits beautifully everywhere. As mentioned, the paint is completely original and has developed a fantastic patina over the past 62 years. The paint also shows that the car has always been cherished. Although there are signs of use, it simply wouldn’t be possible to keep the paint this good without regular maintenance and storing the car indoors.
The interior of the car is partly still original. The Jaguar Mark 9 dates back to the time when classic British cars were fitted with real wood in the interior. The car is also equipped with a beautiful red leather interior as well as matching red carpets. The instruments come from Smiths in good British tradition and all function as they should. The door panels and inside of the luggage compartment are also neatly cared for, as well as the headliner.
The Jaguar Mark 9 was technically a big leap forward compared to the Jaguar Mark 8. The Mark 9 has disc brakes all round and a stronger six-in-line engine. The 3.8 liter engine is mated to a three-speed automatic transmission and still runs very well. The peace and tranquility with which the engine does its work is unprecedented for a car of this age. The automatic transmission shifts smoothly and thanks to the available torque, three gears are in principle more than enough. The car still drives wonderfully.
In short, a beautiful and nowadays very rare Jaguar Mark 9 in a beautiful condition in the first paint. The car will be delivered including the original on-board folder containing the maintenance book, the manual and various general information, such as the original manual with the car radio. An absolutely unique car for the enthusiast.
