Jaguar Sedan 420 and 420G Service and Repair
Motorcars Ltd was founded in 1972 right in the middle of the British car hey-day…. people were actually driving these cars to work every day… and when we started, we quickly realized that the Jaguar 420’s and 420G’s needed routine maintenance along with the other British classics we were servicing. It was a pretty crazy time – we performed full restorations on MGTC’s and XK120’s and maintained daily drivers of the same vintage – at one point, we had over 12 full restorations in progress!
Today, Motorcars Ltd retains a special place in our shop for the mechanical service, repair and maintenance (no, we no longer do full restorations) for the driven British Classic Cars…from Classic Jaguars, MG “T” Series, MGB, TR6, XKE, Austin Healey, Bug Eye Sprites, MGA… we keep them all on the road.
A Closer Look At The Jaguar 420 and 420G Models
Between 1966 and 1970 Jaguar produced the 420 and the 420G. This Jaguar was developed from the famed S-type which continued to be sold alongside the 420. In styling terms, the 420 Sovereign was essentially an S-Type with that car’s curvaceous nose made much more linear, the better to match its rear styling.The 4.2-litre XK engine of the 420 Sovereign was fitted with the straight port cylinder head and 3/8-inch lift cams. The 420 had many mechanical refinements over the S-type including transmission, brakes, cooling to name a few.
The 420G was the first Jaguar saloon to feature independent rear suspension. The front suspension used double wishbones with coil springs and telescopic dampers. It came with a 3.8 Litre engine then later a 4.2 Litre. Originally called the Mark X it was renamed the 420G in 1966.
The 420 was supplanted by the Jaguar XJ6 late in 1968 and the 420G in 1970.
Motorcars Ltd takes great pride in keeping the Jaguar 420 and the Jaguar 420G sedans on the road. Motorcars Ltd offers maintenance, repair and service on both the 420 and the 420G. We no longer perform “full restorations”, but we do provide restoration quality maintenance and repair services routinely.
