1964 Jaguar MK10
Selling on behalf of the current owner, this stunning top of the range MK10, finished in a deep shiny burgundy red with biscuit leather, this car certainly stands out from the crowd. And with a genuine low mileage of just 49691 miles, she has to be seen to be appreciated.
The old girl is in great condition throughout and certainly worthy of any club meeting, classic event or just something to use on regular basis, whilst making some further improvements along the way.
As with most cars of this age, the Jaguar has previously been restored and still looks great. The paintwork has a very deep shine and the panel’s gaps are nice. There are a few minor imperfections; some isolated marks here and there, including some paintwork cracking below the nearside rear quarter below the bumper. To be fair, this is a big car and considering the restoration was carried out a number of years ago, overall my opinion is that she is still in very good condition. Underside is rock solid with no hidden corrosion gremlins and on this model it is very important because when they are rotten, it’s very, very expensive to rectify. Not withstanding that many of these Mk10 and their 420G sisters suffered badly during the 1970’s due to running costs and severe rust problems. However this car was one of the lucky ones. You won’t have any issues with the structure on this car; it just has a few very minor age related bits a pieces here and there.
Patina is the correct word to describe the interior and remains very much original. The leather does require some professionals conditioning and the veneers are very much sun bleached after 50 plus years. The Jaguar is very comfortable and once behind the wheel you can imagine how plush this old girl was back in 1964. All 4 windows work perfectly and with exception to the 70’s radio cassette and speakers in the rear shelf, the cabin is in acceptable condition.
From the moment you press the starter button you have no doubt that the mechanical condition is excellent. The famous 6 cylinder idles very quietly and the automatic choke works, as it should. I recently did 10 miles in this car and I was very impressed with how nice she drove. The gearbox is very smooth, the brakes excellent and the ride lovely. Looking through the history, the car was originally supplied with the standard 3.8 litre, however it was then upgraded to 4.2 a number of years ago, including upgrading the steering to a more efficient e- type power steering rack and larger brakes. This may not be factory but I can assure you this has made a big difference to how this car now handles.
According to the large history file, the Jaguar was first owned by a Surrey film studios so would be great to trace more information about this. It was then owned by several car collectors and then only covering low miles thereafter. Contained within the file are many invoices totalling £1000’s spread over many years, including old MOT and tax discs.
If you want a genuine, virtually rust free and clean Mk10 with low miles and don’t want to spend up to £30,000 then this car could be for you. Its by no means concourse but not priced as such either. There is no need to start spending any money on this Jaguar, with exception to maybe a service. But to be fair, its sensible to maintain these old cars regardless of how many miles are travelled each year
