Sedans Don't Get Much Prettier Than This 1964 Jaguar Mark X

Powered by an E-Type straight-six, this one is for sale right now.


The 1960s were important for Jaguar. In 1961, it released the iconic E-Type, which took the world by storm, cementing the brand firmly into the mainstream. But it wasn't the only car Jaguar sold in the '60s. There was also the Mark X sedan. This one recently underwent a light restoration, and . You should buy it.

Welcome to You Must Buy, our daily look at the cars you really should be buying instead of that boring commuter sedan.

The Mark X was a direct replacement for the Mark IX saloon, first appearing alongside the E-Type in 1961. With radically different styling than the Mark IX and the 3.8-liter straight-six engine from the E-Type, it was aimed towards individuals who didn't want to spend Rolls-Royce money on a good British luxury car. It's one of the prettiest Jaguar four-doors ever made.

This 1964 model underwent a refurbishment in 2009 which included a repaint in black and a full reupholstering of the interior in a bright red leather. Despite being over half a century old, the car looks to be in great condition. Not too surprising considering it's only been driven 54,000 miles. You could get the Mark X with a stick, though most models sold in North America, including this one, were optioned with a three-speed automatic.

The car is with a Buy It Now price of $43,875 or best offer. These cars don't come up for sale often, especially in this condition. So you better act quickly if you're interested.
