Registered in March 1963, this Jaguar MkX was fully restored between 1991 and 1999, with the vendor reporting the chromework now as good, with the Opalescent Dark Green paintwork also in good order. It still sits on its original 14in steel wheels. He describes the Suede Green seats as having a moderate patina, as does the woodwork, with excellent rear picnic tables. Enhancements over the last seven years include Coopercraft four-pot front brake calipers, the steering box rebuilt and upgraded lights, with a separate relay circuit. The starter solenoid was replaced around two years ago when the car was last serviced. While the car is cited as driving well with no issues, the vendor notes that the brakes are - and always have been - quite heavy.
The vendor's ownership spans seven and a half years, but he has now decided he'd like something different. The odometer shows 52,447 miles (although is noted as unreliable) and the last MoT expired in July 2018. However, as an historic vehicle, the Jaguar no longer requires annual testing.
Accompanying the MkX are its V5C, owner's manual and service chart, a February 2014 issue of Jaguar World Monthly magazine featuring the car, a Heritage Certificate, MoT certificates and a large stack of receipts dating back to the 1990s.
