The Jaguar Mk IX  A large and luxurious Saloon car  (curb weight of  4,000 LB (1,800 kg)). was  introduced in  October 1958 and was produced alongside the Mark VIII for around a year before the earlier model was discontinued.

The two models were almost Identical and the most obvious difference is the Mark IX has badges on the boot lid. Less obvious differences were four wheel  Disc brakes by Dunlop, power steering a two speed heater and an indicator stalk on the steering column and few other minor improvements, like twin 6 volt batteries

The Mark IX was the first Jaguar fitted with the XK engine which had  the slightly bigger bore  making it  a 3.8 L (231 in) - 3781 cc, 220 hp (164 kW) DOHC straight six  an improvement on the earlier  3.4 L (210 in).

Around 10,005 units were made between 1959 and 1961 and excellent examples can be found world wide ranging from the UK to  Australia and the USA and Canada. It was replaced by the Jaguar Mark X, that in turn was a much larger car.

All jaguars are highly collectable, This model is no exception.
