Jaguar Mark X Saloon

 

The Jag Mk10 was a really exotic car and huge too. There used to be one parked on the street near where I live - slowly rotting away sadly, but it took a few knocks from passing traffic just because it is so wide. I wonder how many people bought them and the couldn't fit them in the garage? Later on Jaguar re-badged this car as the 420G and brought out the 420 which is a hybrid between this and the original S Type, in effect it has the same profile as the Mk10, but is a foot narrower. I owned a 420 badged as a Daimler Sovereign and even cut down it is still a huge car. Curiously enough my Daimler started life the same pale blue colour as this model although painted silver by the time I got it. Smooth as silk to drive, but incredibly noisy because of all the chrome round the doors.

I owned a pale blue one of these which I got new in 1962, one of the few Corgis I actually got my hands on. It had two suitcases in the boot, one of which opened and I loved it. Sadly after my time my nephews got hold of it and snapped off the bonnet, now I don't think there's anything that can be done with it.

Corgi released the MkX Jag in 1962 keeping it in the range until 1967. There are a lot of colour variations; pale blue, sea green, metallic silver, metallic green, metallic magenta (rose), light blue metallic, mid blue metallic, dark blue metallic, seats can be red or yellow. A mint & boxed example in any colour is always going to be worth a lot of money. Metallic dark blue with red seats is the most prized, but green, rose & silver get a premium too.
