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 manufacturerJaguars 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 bodywork 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 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
