Seeking a classic British Executive Luxury Saloon finished in desirable black exterior and rich red leather interior that has benefited from a no expense spared extensive restoration by Mr. Executive himself, real estate tycoon Richard Parkoff! MotoeXotica Classic Cars is pleased to present this handsome 1964 Jaguar Mark X Saloon.
Made on March 16, 1964 at Jaguarâ€™s Coventry, England factory, . It was dispatched on April 7, 1964 via Jaguar Cars in New York, NY. With the most recent owner being Richard Parkoff of the Parkoff Organization, a massively successful New York City real estate firm. In 2008 the Parkoff Organizaion making headlines with New York City's largest ever all-cash deal in real estate. Since then the organization has made multiple other multimillion dollar deals in and around New York City. Making the Parkoff Organization one of the premier real estate firms in New York City.
With money being no object, about 10 years ago, the car was repainted and reupholstered â€“ the exterior is finished in a stunning black exterior while the interior is finished in rich red leather that absolutely smells wonderful. The paint and trim are in excellent overall condition. The windows are clear and intact while the carâ€™s lights are haze-free and intact. The carâ€™s bodywork is straight and solid including the chrome bumpers.
The area under the bonnet (hood) is extremely tidy, the battery appears new while the boot (trunk) is in very good overall condition, complete with full-sized spare tire and cover. This classic cat rolls on Coker Classic redline tires, size P195/70R14 at all four corners and each tire is mounted on a steel wheel topped with factory wheel cover. The tires and wheel covers are all in very good order.
Under the hood is Jaguarâ€™s venerable 3.8L straight six motor breathing via triple SU carburetors and dual exhausts and backed by a Borg-Warner DG250 three-speed automatic transmission and a 3.54:1 rear end. Driver convenience features include air-conditioning, power steering, power four-wheel disc brakes and power windows.
Inside, the carâ€™s red leather interior is quite eye-catching and complements the exterior well. The supple leather is very inviting and the burled walnut accents on the door panels, instrument panel and center console inject warmth. The front and rear seats are in excellent shape, as is the matching carpet. The factory two-spoke steering wheel is present and looks great. The dashboard and inner door liners are in nearly impeccable condition. Even the center console looks fantastic. The interior was Jaguar's last to feature abundant standard woodwork, including the dashboard, escutcheons, window trim, a pair of large bookmatched fold out rear picnic tables, and a front seat pull-out picnic table stowed beneath the instrument cluster.
TheJaguar MarkX(Mark Ten) was British manufacturerJaguarâ€™s top-of-the-rangesaloon for a decade, from 1961 to 1970. The large, luxurious MarkX succeeded theMarkIXas the company's top saloon model and was primarily aimed at the United States market. The company hoped to appeal to heads of state, diplomats and film stars.
Introduced in the same year as Jaguar's iconicE-Type, the MarkX impressed with its technical specification and innovations. Contrary to its predecessors, the car featured integrated,unitary bodyworkâ€“ the largest in the UK at the time, as well asindependent rear suspension, unheard for early 1960s British luxury cars.Combined with the 3.8-litre, triple carburetor engine as fitted to the E-type, it gave Jaguar's flagship a top speed of 120mph and capable handling at less than half the price of the contemporaryRolls-Royce Silver Cloud.
Despite press acclaim from both sides of the Atlantic, the MarkX never achieved its sales targets. When Jaguar decided to replace its entire saloon range with a single new model, the resultingXJ6 of 1968used the MarkX as a template â€“ albeit with a reduced size.
In 1961, the MarkX introduced a new upright, and slightly forward-leaning nose design for Jaguar saloons, with four headlamps set into rounded front fenders (derived fromDaimler DK400), and a vaned grill. This front-end style reappeared on many of the manufacturer's successive saloons, up to and including theX-Typeand third generationJaguar XJ,boththrough 2009 â€” thereby forging Jaguar saloons' look for half of a century. In 2008,Jalopnikcalled the quad round headlight design the classiest headlight configuration and the fourth-best car design element of all time, mentioning Jaguar specifically.
Instead of relying onbody-on-frameconstruction, like its predecessors and most of its competitors, the MarkX received a unitary constructionmonocoquebody-shell, codenamed â€œZenithâ€ during its development. The substantial doors required helicaltorsion springsinside the door pillars to enable them to be opened from the inside with a low level of effort.
From its introduction in mid-October 1961until the arrival in 1992 of the low-slungXJ220, the MarkX stood as one of the widest production Jaguars ever built. Asked in 1972 if he thought the MarkX had grown too large, Jaguar chairmanWilliam Lyons agreed that it â€œdefinitelyâ€ had: he opined that the then recently introduced and notably more compactJaguar XJ6was, by contrast an â€œideal size.â€
The MarkX was the first Jaguar saloon to featureindependent rear suspension. It differed from earlier large Jaguar saloons in having 14â€ wheels instead of the more common 15â€. It used a wider-track version ofJaguar's IRS unitfirst seen on theE-Type, which was subsequently used on Jaguar vehicles untilXJ-Sproduction ended in 1996. The front suspension used double wishbones with coil springs and telescopic dampers.
Power initially came from the E-type's version of Jaguar's XKinline six-cylinder engine. A 9:1 compression ratio was standard but an alternative 8:1 compression ratio was available as an option. TripleSU carburetorswere fitted, fed from an AC Delco air filter mounted ahead of the right-hand front wheel.
Transmission options weremanual, manual withoverdrive, automatic, or automatic with overdrive. Many domestic market cars and all cars destined for the important North American markets left the factory with a Borg Warnerautomatic gearbox.
Stopping power for this heavy car came from power-assisted disc-brakes on all four wheels and power-assisted steering was standard.
Documentation includes a Jaguar-Daimler Heritage Trust Certificate and more than $4K in receipts from Mr. Parkoff's restoration in Florida.
Competition to this Jaguar in 1964 included BMWâ€™s New Class Sedan, Cadillacâ€™s Sedan de Ville, Chryslerâ€™s 300, Mercuryâ€™s Park Lane, Oldsmobileâ€™s 98 and Mercedes-Benzâ€™s 600.
