This 1957 Jaguar Mark I Saloon is an awesome British classic built for both style and performance. So it comes with nice driving features like the upgraded motor and four-speed manual transmission. This is joined by a supple leather interior, electronic overdrive, and cold-blowing air conditioning. And it's all wrapped in a great-looking and strong-running total package.
The car we now know as the Mark I launched a revolution at Jaguar. Just like its sibling, the XK140 sports car, it was stylish, sleek, and sporty. This example upholds that look quite well because it's a low-mileage machine. The speedometer in kilometers indicates 71,780 km, which is under 45k miles. Plus, you can tell they made all the right investments to keep this one looking like an icon. It starts with a deep color that people will instantly call British Racing Green. It's a recent professional application that invested in quality. Plus, the panels fit nicely, right down to the doors you can shut with confidence. So the sunlight loves to roll evenly off this distinct silhouette. The brightwork received just as much attention, including the shine on the waterfall grille, wraparound bumpers, and the sweeping line of trim that highlights the artful hood, shapely doors, and curvaceous rear all at one. And nothing says shine and sporty quite like genuine knock-off wire wheels.
The tan interior has a timeless look against the deep green exterior. And the moment you feel the supple leather of the seats, you know they made plenty of big investments in here, too. The door panels, headliner, and carpeting all look great. And people will love marveling at all the glossy real wood on the dash and doors. In fact, this is a great classic to share with family and friends, because they'll all stay comfortable with upgrades like the AM/FM/CD stereo with Bluetooth and cold-blowing R134a air conditioning. Of course, no matter how many people are along for the ride, the driver is always the king. You get a wood-rimmed sports steering wheel, floor shifter, and a dash dominated by classic Smiths gauges, including a large speedo and tach.
Under the hood is a true marvel of Jaguar's greatest era. The XK inline-six DOHC motor established sedans like the Mark I as sporting machines. This one builds on that legacy by upgraded to the largest in the XK-series, the 4.2-liter. It has that great classic Jag look with the head stretching through the engine bay and twin Solex carbs mounted on the side. it has received good maintenance, including more recent items, like belts, hoses, water pump, and A/C system. It fires up readily to reaffirm the investment in proper care. Plus, the four-speed manual transmission was rebuilt in 2018. It delivers the ideal balance of commanding control and electronic overdrive for long distance comfort. Sharp handling, fresh tires, and front disc brakes complete this sharp-handling saloon package.
Complete with build receipts, this is the iconic Jaguar that has been given big investments to be a looker and a driver. So if you love a proper British sporting sedan, call today!
