That car is in quite a bad state. What year is the car? By the way this along with the posts of the mark V should be moved to the the Pre war jags thread.

That Jag 1.5 posted by Harit is a post war car and so is the Mark V so they are in the correct thread.

But just noticed this post!

AIB is apna Hyderabadi regn. of the late 80s!

I've noticed post '87 vehicles having AIA and AIB regns. This was the last of the 'old' regn. series in AP before the present series (AP9/10/11/12...) started.

A rare sight - A Mk VII spotted in Bombay the other day getting work done apparently. I think Gogiji knows the car.

Hi Bhpian's, don't know whether this Jaguar MKV has already been covered on this thread or not, but I'm posting a few pics I clicked from my cell camera. The car belongs to the family that owns a famous heritage hotel in New Delhi and when I was visiting Delhi in February, my friend, who is part of the family that owns the hotel very kindly showed me the car, along with another beauty of theirs; my jaw dropped when I saw it, the very same XK120 that Rubens Barrichello rode in before the F1 Grand Prix at the Buddh circuit

I took a few pics though the XK garage was really tight and just couldn't get any angle hence the poor shots

The MKV looks to be very original with a working metal sunroof etc but could use some TLC. The interiors have a nice patina. The XK deserves to be looked after better as well. Is she an alloy bodied example? Gurus?

Regards

Though I'm not a guru but yes that the car is alloy bodied and from what I have heard the car was bought new by their grandfather and was lying neglected ,after his death in early 60s, in their garage until 2002/3 when it was taken out and restored.

Here is the front pic of the car.

Here's the picture of Ruben Barrichelo on the parade lap of Indian F1 race. I was one of the Marshals for the race.

This Jag (I assume post war) was spotted in Bombay recently - I have not seen the car before. It is known to others?

Post Re: Pics: Vintage & Classic cars in India

Spotted this restored Jaguar 420 near the Maharani Bagh flyover. Quite a sight it was, drawing instant attention from the passerbys.

Notice the low slung wheels. Quite an issue it caused, as the underbelly scraped the rough protruding surface of the road.

Here is the 'Jaguar 420' zoomed view.

This car according to me is a Jaguar Mark X, which was rename 420G in 1966

Quote:
For the London Motor Show in October 1966 the Mark X was renamed the Jaguar 420G[1] (not to be confused with the smaller Jaguar 420). The 420G was distinct from the Mark X only with the addition of a vertical central bar splitting the grille in two, side indicator repeaters on the front wings, and a chrome strip along the wing and door panels (two tone paint schemes were also available with the chrome strip omitted).
WIKI

This car came with a 4.20 litre engine and has 3 carbs. The car is a gas guzzler and has dual fuel tanks . Please notice that on the rear on both sides there are enclosed fuel ports for fueling.

We had a similar car about 10 years back.

Cheers
