Description: So not only is this 1960 Jaguar Mark IX saloon for sale on Hemmings

So not only is this 1960 Jaguar Mark IX saloon for sale on a repeated concours attendee and high points-garnering car, but it’s also a proven tourer. Add that to the attractive two-tone blue paint and red interior, and you get a British saloon that can turn heads of people who don’t care much for British saloons. From the seller’s description:

I purchased this car in 1977 in New York, so I have owned it for 34 years. I did a complete frame-on restoration and have enjoyed driving and showing it for many years. This includes the Meadowbrook Concours in 2008, Krasl Art Center Concours in 2006 & 2011,  Cranbrook Concours in 2005, JCNA Concours in 2010 with a score of 99.76, as well as many smaller shows. The colors are the original Cotswold Blue on the upper section and light blue on the sides. Interior is bright red Connolly leather in pristine condition (redone in 2003) and all trim is walnut burl. Both tool boxes fitted in the doors are 100 percent complete. The car currently has 4 wide whitewall radial tires, plus 4 spare tires fitted with the period Denman bias ply whitewalls that can be used for shows. Engine and trans operate perfectly, suspension was redone and is excellent. It is a wonderful road car that has been on a 1,000-mile annual road tour for the last 5 years with no issues. I am interested in purchasing a roadster and must sell this first.

For the record these Big Cats weren’t any more prone to rust than the rest of the models in light of you rarely saw anyone drive an XK. especially a OTS through the winter, some no doubt did, but not many.

Unfortunately and old sedan is just an old sedan whereas an XK of most models OTS, DHC and even coupes were far more cherished. This explains the limited numbers that are in this shape.

Very east to get upside/down with regards to the financials on restoring one as their market value is pale when compared with an XK.

The car is over 16 feet long and well over 5000 lbs. so there’s a lot that needs to attended to keep it in shape, not to mention the 50 or so pieces of wood that make up the interior trim.

The car has a full frame and as anyone who drove during the era of framed cars, the ride is impressive. The powerplant is Jaguar, bottom line it’s a nice ride/driving car.

The sales of the Big Cats and the smaller sedans were how Jaguar was able to finance their sportscars as the XK’s sales numbers weren’t sufficient to keep the company in the black by themselves.
