1959 Jaguar MK IX

Jaguar Cars, Limited introduction the Mark V four-door sedan in 1948 featuring a new chassis with independent double wishbone front suspension. It made its debut alongside the XK120 at the London Motor Show, and came equipped with the pre-war pushrod inline six-cylinder in lieu of the new XK engine. The Mark VI was replaced in 1951 with the Mark VII and was the first sedan to be endowed with the race-proven dual overhead-cam inline-6 XK engine. (The Mark VI was omitted to avoid confusion with the Bentley Mark VI).

The Mark IX made its introduction in 1959, the final evolution of the styling and chassis introduced with the Mark V. The 3.8-liter version of the XK engine delivered 220 horsepower and Dunlop disc brakes were added to all four-wheels, the first for a production Jaguar. For the United States market, the Mark IX came with an automatic transmission and power steering. Appearance was similar to the VIII, except for the 'Mk IX' emblem on the trunk lid. Pricing for the four-door sedan began at just over $6,000. From 1959 through 1961, a total of 10,009 examples of the Mark IX sedan were produced, including 4,647 built for export.

Later version of the Jaguar Mk IX had a larger tail-lamp assembly with the addition of an amber section housing the direction indicators.
