    1960 Jaguar Mark IX, Rare Complete Classic...Only $15,500

    Classic Car Marketing, Inc. Southern California's premier marketing company is pleased to introduce this new listing offered for sale by one of our clients. This 1960 Jaguar Mark IX is an extremely rare and unique find ready for you to make your own. The Jaguar Mark IX was unveiled at the Earls Court London Motor Show autumn, 1958. This model was manufactured from 1959 to 1961 with just over 10,000 built. The big Marks were imported cars for Jaguar, epitomizing Jaguar's motto of 'Grace, Space and Pace' with luxury appointments rivaling Rolls and Bentley, but with more spirited performance at a lower price. Visually it was nearly identical to its predecessor, the Mark VIII, however, mechanically much was updated. Engine capacity was increased to 3.8 liters with the adoption of the latest XK engine rated at 220 horsepower. Stopping power was updated to a servo-assisted Dunlop four-wheel disc brake system. A Burman power assisted steering system came standard as well as a three-speed Borg Warner automatic transmission that included an intermediate speed hold switch on the dash for hills and corners. Mark IX suspension include double wishbones front end with torsion bars and a rear live axle with semi-elliptic springs providing a smooth, comfortable ride. The interior is finished in Connolly leather and walnut burl. The front doors include hidden compartments with tool kits for routine servicing. Although they were large and heavy, the big Marks proved surprisingly successful in racing and rallying. Sterling Moss won the Monte Carlo Rally in 1956 driving a Mark VII Saloon. Today's Mark IX's are very rare with rust and mechanical problems plaguing the brand. Fast forward 51 years and what you have here today is a time capsule preserved and ready to go. The mechanical woes are now gone with a new crate 350 small block Chevrolet with 700 R4 automatic transmission, custom aluminum radiator, power steering, and power disc brakes. The car was repainted and has had over $10,000 spent on upgrades and ran quite well just prior to being put into storage. The body, chrome and wood are also in good condition. Some minor restorations will make this car the envy of car enthusiasts. This rare automobile is an amazing deal at only $15,500 OBO.
