Beautiful inside and out, this 1967 Jaguar 420 has a hidden secret. The motor is exceptionally simple to maintain thanks to an upgrade to 4.3 liters of Chevy power. So you can look great while having the confidence to go the distance in this A/C classic sedan.
The look is unmistakable Jaguar, but this car is quite unique. Only in production for three years, the Jaguar 420 sedan (ok, saloon for the purists) is a great midpoint design between the Mark series and the revolutionary XJ. It is presented exceptionally well today on this fully sorted example. Wraparound chrome bumpers, complete trim, and all four doors shut with confidence – it's a cut-above restoration, but there's much more going on here. You could never get this kind of blue on a car in the 1960s, even on a premium marque. Instead, this metallic shade is the product of an investment in a modern clearcoat with a very professional hand. But not everything needs modernization. After all, no one can improve on Jaguar wire wheels with knock-off spinners.
Inside is true British luxury. That means plenty of real wood on the dash and plush tan leather seating. The comfort continues with a long list of desirable features such as individual armrests up front, power steering, and an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo. The air conditioning even blows nice and cold like a luxury car should. But Jaguars also have a sporting heritage, which you can see in the full set of Smiths gauges.
Lift the hood for an interesting surprise. This Jaguar has been given a transplant of 4.3-liters of fuel-injected Chevy power. The wide availability of components Vortec motor means more reliability and better component availability. The 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive was also donated from GM. But what makes this a great car is the Jaguar drivetrain is still intact. That means a European-tuned fully-independent suspension and four-wheel disc brakes. So this car is the perfect blend of a reliable heart and precision legs.
This car is rare and very unique...and when it's this affordable, you know you have to act quickly to snatch it up. Call today!!!
