1967 JAGUAR 420G

The Vehicle

The preceding Jaguar S-Type’s styling had been unchanged since 1959 and as a result, much of the public lost interest in the car’s yester-year styling. When Jaguar greenlit the 420, they knew everything had to be changed in order to recapture the public’s interest. Happy with parts of their original design, Jaguar left the rear of the 420 exactly the same as it appeared on the S-Type. However, the front of the car was heavily redesigned in order to fit in with more current design trends.

All the adjustments made to the 420 were highly approved, and contemporary articles on the car were quite impressed by what Jaguar had managed to put together. “For a reasonable basic price of $5900, Jaguar offers brisk performance, outstanding braking, excellent handling and ride, quality finish, and luxury in abundance, all in an automobile that's easy to maneuver in today's maddening traffic.” Road & Track US, 1967. We sincerely hope the author is coping well with 2023 traffic.

On the Outside

Condition around the 420's tan exterior is solid. The paint is in modest shape, the clear coat may need touching up, but the paint shows no impact damage. Panel gaps are fair, with the hood and trunk looking particularly out of shape. Glass is clear, and the chrome appears to have survived nicely. Overall, this 420's exterior doesn't raise any red flags.

On the Inside

The cream leather interior echoes the outside being a little rough around the edges, but still solid in terms of functionality. The seats would benefit from a deep cleaning but don't show major damage. Wooden inserts have aged nicely on the dash, but have lost some of their luster around the windows. The brown leather-wrapped steering wheel shows nicely. The headliner is particularly dirty, and the state of the floormats is similar.

Underneath

One of the most reworked areas of the 420 when moving on from the S-Type was the straight-six engine. Refinements include the following: a stronger transmission, a more efficient crossflow radiator, a dual-line hydraulic braking system, twin 2-inch HD8 SU carburetors were added, new brake discs, a Holset engine cooling fan, negative earthing, a pre-engaged starter, and an alternator. Today's motor shows nicely inside of what is otherwise an unsightly engine bay.

What We Think

The 420 was both a major and minor step forward for Jaguar. Jaguar refused to discontinue the Type-S and instead chose to sell the 420 alongside its predecessor and this was a move that ultimately confused the public and turned them off to the car entirely. However, the creation of the 420 allowed for the creation of their new XJ straight-six engine. The motor was extremely well reviewed, and the best decision Jaguar made was to keep it after the 420 was retired. The straight-six was ultimately dropped into Jaguar’s next car, the XJ6, one of Jaguar’s best-selling cars of all time. Today’s 420 needs quite a bit of work. Regardless, we are confident this little Jag will have few issues hitting its $3,000 - $5,000 estimate.

IMPORTANT NOTICE TO ALL BIDDERS

It should be noted that this vehicle has been on static display for a number of years and there is no history available beyond that displayed in our photography section.

We have not started or driven the car so cannot vouch for its mechanical viability or functionality. It will require recommissioning prior to road use and is sold ‘as seen’.

Please note that the title for this vehicle is in transit.

Buyers should expect the title within 30 business days following the sale; however, please note that for reasons beyond Bonhams/Market control, including any delays in lien releases by lien holder and/or delays by Department of Motor Vehicles (or equivalent) in certain states, there are instances where the Buyer may not receive the title within 30 business days and, in those circumstances, Bonhams/Market will work to provide the titles to the Buyer as soon as possible.

If a Lot is rendered “Title in Transit”, it is unlikely that the Buyers will receive the title in the mail within 30 business days following the auction/sale; however, Bonhams/Market will work to provide the titles to the Buyer as soon as possible.

The Buyer acknowledges that delays in transferring titles including, due to delays at government Motor Vehicle departments, happen from time-to-time and, the Buyer will hold both Bonhams/Market and the Consignor harmless from any allegations of damages arising out of government delays.

The father of jokes about warm beer and smoke escaping from wires is Joseph Lucas. Lucas died of typhoid after drinking infected water in Naples in 1902.

What disease did Lucas succumb to?
