Perhaps this Jaguar Mark IX would be outdone by a Rolls-Royce or a Bentley from that wonderful decade - but we highly doubt it. Of course, the modern gauges and CD player spoil the period mood - but only slightly. This car has AC, after all, which is a mod worth adding!
This Jaguar Mark IX preceded the 1965 Jaguar Mark X featured in a previous 'Fatcat Chic' article, comparing it with today's XJL in matching photo angles.
