Untraceable, we can say in this case, right? When was the last time you saw a 1960 Jaguar Mark 9 in its original paint? That can rightfully be called unique. The car was delivered new in the United States and has recently arrived in the Netherlands. The American owners have always carefully cared for the car and the Jaguar is still in beautiful original condition. The Mark 9 was at its introduction the absolute pinnacle of luxury in the Jaguar range. The stately British limousine could compete with the best on the market and still looks very elegant. It makes you think, why couldn't Jaguar continue this line to the present? Anyway, back to the Mark 9. The car has less than 31,000 miles on the odometer and we have every reason to believe that this is the original mileage. The interior is largely original as is the complete exterior. The car has been in the collection of a museum for a while. The museum used the car occasionally for parades and only brought her out for special occasions in the area. The beauty of that is that the car did get regular use instead of merely sitting idle. It is immediately apparent at the first glance of the car. The exterior looks beautiful. The sheet metal is nice and thin and fits everywhere beautifully. The paint, as mentioned, is completely original and has developed a fantastic Patina over the past 62 years. The paint also shows that the car has always been cherished. Although there are user traces on it would simply not be possible to keep the paint so good without regular maintenance and storing the car inside. The interior of the car is partly still original. The Jaguar Mark 9 dates back to the time when classic British cars were equipped with écht wood in the interior. The car is further equipped with a beautiful red leather upholstered interior as well as matching red carpets. The instruments are in good British tradition from Smiths and all function as they should. The door panels and inside of the luggage compartment are also neatly cared for as is the headliner. The Jaguar Mark 9 was a big leap forward technically from the Jaguar Mark 8. For example, the Mark 9 has disc brakes all around and stronger six-in-line engine. The 3.8-liter engine is mated to a three-speed automatic transmission and still runs very well. The peace and quiet with which the engine does its work is unprecedented for a car of this age. The automatic gearbox shifts smoothly and thanks to the available torque, three gears are more than enough. The car still drives wonderfully. In short, a beautiful and nowadays very rare Jaguar Mark 9 in a superb condition in first paint. The car comes with the original board folder containing the maintenance book, manual and various general information such as the original manual with the car radio. An absolutely unique car for the enthusiast.
