Texas Classic Cars Of Dallas is proud to showcase this gorgeous 1960 Jaguar Mark XI. Presented in a very clean coat of black paint and brown leather interior, this gorgeous and luxurious Jaguar has tons of class and appeal. The Jaguar was repainted in 1991 by Sheldon Classic Auto Restoration. The engine compartment is in great condition which features an enlarged-bore 3.8 L, 220 bhp straight-6 that replaced the previous models 3.4 L 190 bhp unit. The B-type head of the Mark VIII was retained, but with a camber at the bottom of the combustion chamber to accommodate the enlarged bore. Twin HD6 1.75" SU carburetors were fitted. A smaller electromagnetically controlled auxiliary carburetor was placed between the main pair of carburetors to act as a choke. It often proved troublesome operation and many were converted to manual switching . Standard compression ratio was 8:1, but a higher performance 9:1 compression ratio was also available, as was a 7:1 compression ratio for export markets, such as Africa, where quality of petrol was sometimes a problem. The standard transmission was a four-speed manual system: options included overdrive, but this one was built with a Borg Warner three-speed automatic box that shifts like new. The Mark IX was the first production Jaguar to offer four-wheel servo-assisted Dunlop disc brakes and recirculating ball power steering, which were now standard equipment. The brake system includes a vacuum reserve tank to preserve braking in the event that the engine stalled. On models with automatic transmission, the brakes were equipped with an electromagnetic valve that maintained brake pressure at rest when the brake pedal was released to prevent the car from rolling back on an incline, hence its name "Hill Holder". The Hill Holder was often troublesome (failing to release the brakes when the accelerator was depressed) and was disconnected on most cars without ill effect. The sunshine roof became a standard fitting for the UK market and it works well. The interior is in the same luxurious original mode with extensive use of leather, walnut wood trim and deep pile carpet that have very few signs of wear. The Mark IX was popular as a ceremonial car for state dignitaries and it can be yours today , you will surely feel like royalty riding in this luxurious Jag, This particular Jaguar was purchased on Dec. 9 1959 by Mrs. Robert Tritton of Godmersham Park Estate, Kent. She also had an apartment at Grosvenor Square, London, which has such neighbors as the American Embassy. In 1973 it was purchased by the second owners Larry and Marrillie Good who had it shipped from England to a near Chicago dock and who owned the car for the longest period of time.The exterior was restored by Sheldon Classic Auto Restoration in 1991, the car was later purchased and well maintained by the current owner, don't hesitate to call for more information and to schedule a test drive.

The lines of this fantastic Jaguar are timeless. This is truly a classic car. The engine compartment is very nicely detailed. This in line 6 runs extremely well. The car is very capable of a nice road trip. The sun roof does not leak and is very quit, no wind sound when you cruise down the highway. The interior is original and just needs some leather revitalizing cream to bring it back to close to new. Some photos of the paint work in 1991. We have several more.
